Only two (and a half, I guess) more workdays 'til the weekend! Which means only a couple more days of 9 to 5-ing before a sun-filled (hopefully!) reprieve. In the meantime, take a deep breath and try this.
Slow Neck Roll:
"For relief from tension in the neck."
A slow neck roll not only stretches the muscles of your jaw, throat and neck, but it also can release tension from your shoulders and, done regularly, can dislodge and/or prevent recurring pain in those areas. Follow these steps:
Stand or sit with your spine straight but at ease (as much as possible - like, don't stress).
While inhaling, gently roll your head to one side until your chin touches your shoulder. Look toward that side.
While exhaling, slowly roll your head downward until your chin is resting on your chest. Remember to keep your spine erect and your shoulders squared. Hold for a few seconds, until you're ready to move on.
While inhaling, gently lift your head back up until your chin touches the other shoulder. Look toward that side.
Go slow! Repeat 5 to 10 times... And have a great Wednesday afternoon!
