Desk workers should periodically perform the “Brugger relief position” to help maintain good sitting posture.
Here’s how to do it:
- Position your body at the chair’s edge, feet pointed outward. Weight should be on your legs and your abdomen should be relaxed.
- Tilt your pelvis forward, lift your sternum, arch your back, drop your arms, and roll out your palms while squeezing your shoulders together.
- Take a few deep cleansing breaths.
