Stretching exercises

Every day during your break, do some stretching exercises with your co-workers at your desksin order to improve mobility and to relax your muscles.

According to the Swiss Health Promotion through Physical Activity and Sport (HEPA), adults should perform stretching exercises at least 2 to 3 times a week to improve their range of motion.

Static, dynamic or moving stretches are most effective when the muscles are warmed up, i.e. after light activity.

Each stretch is held for 10 to 30 seconds and repeated 2 to 4 times. You can stretch until you feel a slight pull or gently rock forwards and backwards at the edge of your mobility range.
