If you sit at a computer or a desk a lot, you may have noticed that you’re stretching out your neck to move your head closer to the screen or your work. This can create bad posture, and increase the amount of stress put on your neck to hold your head up.

To counteract this, sit up straight in your chair. Slowly pull your chin in, like a turtle. The goal is to keep the back of the neck straight and long. Hold the position for 10 seconds, breathing normally, then release.

Do 5-10 of these at once at least several times a day to keep your posture in alignment and reduce the chance of experiencing neck pain. Simple sitting exercise for neck pain
