Feeling Fatigued at Work? Stretches to do at your desk.

We all are busy juggling our finances in such a time where COVID- 19 has impacted the entire market. With all those people with increased working hours in order to earn more to keep the family going in these tough times, fatigue, tiredness, and feeling lethargic is just too minimal.

Working from home can take a toll on your health, muscles, and overall health if you sit straight without stretching! Make sure to relax every 30 minutes or so. If you don’t, then your shoulder, neck, and back can end up aching a lot more than you expect with continuous sitting.
