Distractibility, restlessness, and short attention span – these are signs that you are not giving your best at the workplace.

If you are like many others, you probably sit for extended periods, fighting against the urge to walk around for a few minutes because you feel there is a need for focus on your task. But, you hardly ever round off with tasks until you leave for home.

In reality, prolonged stretches of time at your office does not necessarily translate to increased productivity. The good news is that you can take control of your focus and increase your productivity. Stretching out is a great way to boost energy, efficiency, and engagement at the workplace. This small action can go a long way to reduce fatigue and improve flexibility. While you may hesitate to step away from your desk, here are a few great reasons to add a short time to stretch to your daily work regimen.

Increased Productivity

Although stepping out of your desk for a short time to stretch may feel counterproductive at first, a 15-minute mid-day session can help to improve circulation, shedding off some stress so you can get to work with a clearer, more focused mind.

Reduced Fatigue

When our muscles are static, there is usually a shortage of blood and oxygen supply to the brain and this can leave you with a groggy feeling. This typically translates to a limited release of mood enhancing chemicals to the brain. Stretching helps reduce fatigue, by improving blood flow and increasing the release of mood enhancing chemicals. Yes, taking a few minutes to stretch out during the day can help keep your stress levels in check.

Improved Focus

Sitting for extended periods can lead to damage of the spine’s natural curvature. Stretching out for a few minutes can help relieve tension on the back or shoulder, improving your posture and of course, your focus at the workplace.
