Loosening up for 10 minutes isn’t a stretch

by Michael Polzella

Is stress lurking around your office environment? If so, take 10 minutes to host a team stretch break and let everyone know why it’s important.

Here’s what happens when we stretch:

– Endorphins are released, which boosts our mood.

– Blood flow is refreshed, bringing a calmer mindset.

– Muscle tension is freed, which means less pain and stiffness.

Stretching is great way to deal with a challenging day. There are many good stretches to do that don’t take long; my favorites focus on the hips and chest to curb problems that stem from sitting at a desk and hunching over your keyboard.
