3 Things You Can Do From Your Desk For Your Well-being

Sitting at the office all day can do a number on your feet. Yes, that's right - believe it or not, sitting all the time is bad for your feet.


A pile of yellow tennis balls.

When you aren't really using them, the sensors in your feet become deactivated, in turn reducing mobility in the feet and ankles. Next thing you know, you've got knee and back problems to boot.


So, first things first. You need to get yourself a tennis ball. Accessible and inexpensive, these little babies can do wonders for your muscles. Here are three simple ways to keep those feet and ankles in good shape without ever having to leave your desk (though I highly recommend getting up every hour and taking a short stroll!).


1.Roll the ball

Take your shoe off, push your foot on the ball and roll it back forth for 2 to 3 minutes per foot. When you sit all day, the soft tissue called fascia tends to tighten up, and this move will loosen it back up.


2.Flex your toes

Activating the muscles in your feet helps to waken your entire body. Put your toes on the floor, heel up, and grip the ground with your toes for about 10 seconds, then extend them up for 5. Do 20 reps on each foot.


3.Work your calves

Pushing the ball into the top and sides of your calf, roll along the length of the muscles. If it's sore, that means you found more tension to work on. The more you do this, the better it will feel. Work each leg for about 2 minutes at a time.
