White collar workers spend a significant amount of time sitting at a desk hunched over a computer. In fact, sedentary jobs have increased 83% since 1950, according to the American Heart Association. Between commuting to and from work, and spending the work day in meetings, on the phone, or rushing to complete projects, the one activity that seems the most expendable is exercising. To help get you motivated, BlackEnterprise.com compiled five exercises you can do in your office in less than 10 or fifteen minutes. Note: Before you begin any physical activity consult with your physician. Problem: Carpal tunnel syndrome can result from any repetitive movements such as typing or using a mouse. Solution: Hand exercises. Hold your right hand straight out in front of you with your palm down. With your left hand, grasp the fingers of your right hand and hold them back. Count to five. Repeat this substituting your right hand for your left hand.
