Dining Neck Stretch
You don't have to be a competitive eater to appreciate a good stretch before a big meal. Your stiff neck and tight shoulders will thank you for taking a couple minutes to stretch each time you sit down at the table. Take this opportunity three times a day to stretch the muscles in your neck and shoulders, including the trapezius muscle that runs the length of your neck, down through your shoulders and upper back.
Cue the music to Chariots of Fire and approach the table in slow motion just for fun. Sit up straight with your back and butt against the back of the chair. Relax your neck and shoulders and reach across your head with one arm, gently pulling it down parallel to your shoulder. Hold it for only ten seconds then release your grip and slowly raise your head back to center. Repeat this on the other side.
