Take Regular Breaks

-Move your upper body: Pause and practice the exercises from this video throughout your day.

-Go for a walk: Once an hour get up and take a quick stroll. Go get a drink of water, or hand deliver a  note instead of sending an email to a co-worker

-Rest your eyes: Give your eyes a break from the screen. Focus on looking out the window or go outside and look at something in the distance. This will help you avoid eye strain and upper body strain.

-Focus on reducing stress: Practice deep diaphragmatic breaths throughout your day to help keep stress at bay. Muscular tension caused from stress is called bracing, and is a common cause of neck and shoulder pain and discomfort.
