During the day, we spend a lot of time indoors and hunching over our screens. We shouldn’t be surprised that our passive, counterintuitive lifestyle does nothing for our necks.
Yoga is a simple and accessible remedy for neck pain. Paying attention to your body is also an essential part of yoga. In addition to technology addictions, body pain is related to our emotions. It’s possible to determine how you feel by paying attention to your body’s pain.
A common place to hold insecurities is the neck. By releasing pain, you also release emotional blockages. These simple stretches are a great way to detach and reconnect.
Place Your Hands Behind Your Head
This stretch will help open your shoulders, alleviating neck pain. Exercises like these counteract the “concave chest” of hunching over at a desk.
Chin To Chest
The neck bridges your body to your mind, making it susceptible to stress. This exercise stretches the neck gently but effectively.
Take A Look Behind You
When it’s time to do this, sit up nice and tall, reaching up through the crown of your head. Looking over your right shoulder, inhale deeply, and exhale.
Drops And Rolls Of The Shoulders
Neck muscles are reliant upon each other because of shoulder stress. You may be overcompensating your neck by tensing up your shoulders. Relaxation of the upper back and shoulders is possible with this movement.
It’s also an excellent shoulder stretch that will relieve strain on the shoulders, back, and neck. A heart-opening pose that will leave you feeling relaxed and centered.
Ear To Shoulder
Stretching the muscles involved in the rotation and tilt of your head with an ear-to-shoulder stretch is helpful. The muscles can become sore and tight after spending hours at a desk.
