This simple standing neck and shoulder stretch does a great job of loosening the muscles in your neck and shoulders thant get tight over the course of a day, especially if you spend a lot of time sitting or staring at a computer screen.

To do this stretch, start in a standing position with your back straight and your feet hip width apart.

Bring your hands behind your back and clasp your fingers together. If this is too difficult, grab your opposite elbows.

Taking deep breaths, slowly straighten your arms, pulling them down toward the floor and away from your body simultaneously.

Hold this position, breathing deeply, for 15 seconds. Relax for 10 seconds, then repeat.
