Well-Being the Wesley Way
Sitting at a desk or a computer all day can lead to desk fatigue. This type of inactivity can cause a high risk for musculoskeletal disorders like carpal tunnel syndrome. Musculoskeletal disorders develop over time and can affect the arms, neck, hands, fingers back, wrists, legs and shoulders. It is important to take breaks throughout the day. Deskercise – desk exercises – can help reduce these risks and avoid injury. Just 10-30 seconds can be the difference in your well-being, saving you from musculoskeletal disorders. Try it once, or multiple times a day. Invite your co-workers to try on their own or make it a group activity for consistency and camaraderie.
