For most of us, whether it is at home or at the office, working those countless hours all week takes a toll on your body.

One of the main issues most people have is backache .When you experience back pain you may begin to slouch causing shoulder and neck pain as well.

If you don’t have that perfectly ergonomic desk/chair set up and you work all week, here are some stretching tips to help get back into the swing of things.

1. Start with laying stomach down on the floor

2. Put your hands directly under your shoulders, shoulder-width apart

3. Slowly lift your upper body, arching your back, toes facing the wall behind you, looking up towards the ceiling

4. Slowly come back to original position and repeat

Tip: Do not over-extend the arch, simply bend until you feel a good stretch, but not so it is uncomfortable.
