Hello everyone, wish you all a very energetic start to the week!
Today Drinkizz will introduce to you the “Standing Side Bend” exercise, help relax at work extremely effectively, remember to invite your teammates to do it together!
As in previous articles of Drinkizz, using the computer continuously for many hours a day will affect your body. Sedentary, sitting for a long time in one position, can cause pain and stiffness in the back, neck and shoulders of most office workers.
Long-term back pain causes psychological stress and produces a lot of cortisol (stress hormone). When cortisol is high, the antioxidant enzymes in the blood become less active. Note that antioxidant enzymes in our body are the most powerful source of antioxidants, so if these enzymes are weak, our body will suffer from lack of energy, fatigue, aging and disease. .
What happens to your body when you do “Standing Side Bend” exercise?
Intercostal stretching exercises have a calming and balancing effect on the nervous system. Nerves and sensory receptors are stimulated and messages are sent along nerve pathways through the spinal cord to the brain. At that time, the parasympathetic system will slow down the body’s activities, such as lowering the heart rate, regulating breathing, lowering blood pressure and reducing the amount of sweat.
When you relax completely, psychological stress will be reduced. As a result, antioxidant enzymes in the blood such as superoxide dismutase, catalase, glutathione peroxidase and glutathione reductase… work better, helping to balance free radicals in the body. (1)
