How to Relieve Neck Tension

Stretch It: Seated Neck Release

When I'm working at my computer all day, I can feel the tension building up in my neck and shoulders. Throughout the day, I try to remember to take breaks to get up and walk around, but this seated neck stretch really does wonders.

For details on how to feel this delicious neck release, and ways to feel a deeper stretch,

.

  • Sit on the floor in a cross-legged position, or in a chair with your feet flat on the ground.
  • Extend your right arm next to your right knee or along the right side of the chair. Place your left hand on the top of your head and slowly tilt your head to the left. Apply gentle pressure with your hand to increase the stretch.
  • To feel a deeper stretch, you can hold onto your right knee or the seat of the chair. This stabilizes the torso and allows you to isolate the stretch on the side of your neck.
  • Hold on this side for 30 seconds, then slowly lift your head up and repeat this stretch on the other side.
