The Wellspace application works with employers and employees to help make beneficial changes toward their well-being including physical wellbeing. Physical activity can be difficult to keep on top of when sitting at a desk 9-5. That’s why, we have put together a simple guide of some easy office and desk stretches to do throughout the day, whether you work from home or in an office. Stretching often helps relieve pressure from being sat at a desk and also alleviates tension in your back and improves posture.
