Here are some excercises you can do at your workstation.

 

Sit into your chair with your back supported, shoulders relaxed, hands by your sides.

 

Shoulder shrugs are great to relieve tension in the neck and shoulders.

 

Raise your shoulders to your ears, hold for 5 then release.  Repeat 3 times and throughout the day.

 

Shoulder Rolls

 

Shoulders relaxed.  Lift shoulders up, roll shoulder backwards and down around and up again.  Repeat 5 times.
