As much as we love our carefully crafted and styled workspaces, sitting at a desk all day is torture on your body. If you can't take a break to walk around, try a few seated stretches. They're no excuse for the real thing, of course, but they will instantly relieve some of the tension in your monitor-gazing neck and shoulders and your constantly-typing arms and wrists.

And if you just spare 3 minutes each hour to work on in-your-seat stretches, you can end each workday feeling better than the last.
