For those of you that have been asked to work from home it is likely that your step count and daily movement will be severely reduced. This is going to leave you stiff and immobile. To combat this we have put together 4 hip stretches and 1 movement flow for you to run through each day. Stretching is also great for activating your parasympathetic (rest & digest) nervous system, which is what we need right now as the majority of us are going to be feeling anxious.

Work your way through each of the 4 stretches for 2 minutes (60s per side) and then set a timer for 5mins and work through the movement flow continuously. Put emphasis on controlled movement and relaxed breathing.
