Tired of sitting at your desk all day?
While you might not think of the workplace as a space for fitness and wellness, it can actually be a great place to start.
And the good news? You can do it on your chair.
Here are 3 reasons why chair yoga works at work.
Chair yoga can be done anytime.
It can be tough to find the time and energy to get in a workout at work, especially if things on your plate are the work of 3 people.
Chair yoga works at work because it’s a great way to stretch those muscles out!
Whether it’s right after lunchtime, during your coffee break, or even in the middle of a meeting, you can give yourself 5-10 minutes of peace by doing some simple chair yoga poses.
Chair yoga only requires…a chair.
When you’re glued to your computer at work, your mind tends to forget to tell your body to maintain a rather upright position, and the next thing you know, you’re slouching.
You see, the beauty about doing chair yoga at work is that you don’t need any additional equipment or space – you just use what’s around you!
You can do it with your colleagues.
When you have a full-time job, it can be difficult to find time to do something just for yourself.
Chair yoga isn’t restrictive to solo workouts. In fact, it can become a social activity with work friends, or even a part of your company’s corporate wellness program.
Make it your office workout routine by booking a meeting room with your colleagues. A good 15 minutes to meditate and do some poses can go a long way to keep your mind refreshed and your bodies relaxed.
It’s an accessible form of exercise, requiring only a chair and good balance, so you can do it in your office with your colleagues.
