Exercises for the Deskbound
If you have to sit a lot during the day, try these exercises to help keep you flexible, strong, and more mentally alert.
You can do some of them while talking on the phone, typing on your computer, or surfing the net. Repeat each 4 to 6 times.
Side neck stretches
Gently lean your head to the right. Return to an erect position. Lean your head left. Always return to an erect position
between stretches and never simply rotate the neck.
Shrug both shoulders up to your ears, rotate them backward, and then lower them to their original position.
Extend your arms to either side at shoulder height. Rotate your arms in small circles, first clockwise and then counterclockwise.
Hold a book or can of soup in one hand. Lift it overhead and bring it down; extend it in front of you (shoulder level)
and back. Repeat with the other hand. As you get stronger, use a heavier object.
Lean forward and reach for your knees, calves, ankles, and the floor, holding each position for 1 to 2 seconds.
Hip flexor strengthener
Bring one knee as close to your chest as you can. Repeat with the other knee. Alternate your legs as if you were doing
a high-stepping march.
Quadricep strengthener/ankle stretch
Sitting straight with both feet flat on the floor, lift one leg from the knee so that it is parallel to the floor. Hold
the position, flex your foot, and rotate the ankle. Repeat with the other leg.

Here's my Tarot Card. Click below the description to find out which Tarot Card suits your personality.
You are The Moon
Hope, expectation, Bright promises.
The Moon is a card of magic and mystery - when prominent you know that nothing is as
it seems, particularly when it concerns relationships. All logic is thrown out the window.
The Moon is all about visions and illusions, madness, genius and poetry. This is a
card that has to do with sleep, and so with both dreams and nightmares. It is a scary card in that it warns that there might
be hidden enemies, tricks and falsehoods. But it should also be remembered that this is a card of great creativity, of powerful
magic, primal feelings and intuition. You may be going through a time of emotional and mental trial; if you have any
past mental problems, you must be vigilant in taking your medication but avoid drugs or alcohol, as abuse of either will cause
them irreparable damage. This time however, can also result in great creativity, psychic powers, visions and insight. You
can and should trust your intuition.
