I used to have trouble staying awake during my long, dragging day of work. Around midafternoon, I felt so sluggish and lethargic that all I could do is try to think of a place where I could take a nap safely, while my boss was busy with other things.

Stretching right at my desk for 10 minutes a day helped me significantly increase my energy level. I don’t feel lazy anymore. On the contrary, my productivity at work improved and I’ve even adopted the habit of taking a walk during my lunch break. Goodbye to my midday fatigue!

5) My back pain has gone away.

The constant pain in my back is what made me start this experiment. I had always heard that stretching helps heal and prevent lower back pain by strengthening the muscles and reducing the risk for muscle strain. Surprisingly, it was true.

As a repetitive sitter, who practically has no time to do a full workout every day, I had to choose something that could reduce the stiffness in my back and return mobility to my glute muscles without being too time-consuming. Turned out, stretching was a great choice.

After a month of doing stretching exercises, I finally feel relieved — and there’s no pain anymore. Besides that, my muscles have become stronger and there are no more knots in my shoulders.
