As much as I love my job- and I REALLY do- it can be tough to sit at a desk all day. Combine this with the fact that I was in a car accident a few years ago and damaged my back/shoulder/neck...I sometimes find myself in pain.
I am lucky to work for an organization that is pro-active in the health and wellness of it's employees. Our HR department used to meet three times a week to stretch together- all employees were invited to join. Next week, my work will have a more formal 3-times a week stretch break. I enjoyed the HR stretches and am looking forward to participating in the new stretch break too.
