Neck Exercises Blog, A Guide to a Better Neck Posture

Hello and welcome to Neck Exercises. I am glad you want to take care of your neck. Whether you have neck pain, tension, stress or discomfort, neck exercises can help. Making small adjustments each day to include neck exercises, stretch exercises, or a neck workout, will gradually improve your neck health and quality of life. Let's get started!

Arms Up Neck Exercises

Do you like to stretch when you first wake up in the
morning? Do you reach for the sky or ceiling when raising your arms up? How about
just adding a few more moves with your arm raising stretch in the morning as
neck exercises? This morning when I got up and stretched, I raised my shoulders
up and squeezed my shoulder blades together. So, this will be today’s neck
exercises.

The motions for these neck exercises are a combination of
moves: shoulder blade pinches, shoulder raises and chin tucks. These neck
exercises
help with breathing and having good posture. A benefit of these neck
exercises are that they reduce neck tension and improve neck flexibility. These
extra motions are simple to implement into your everyday movements. You can do
these neck exercises sitting or standing. I’ll describe them standing.

Standing Position:

  • Feet shoulders width apart
  • Knees slightly bent
  • Arms by your side
  • Relax your shoulders
  • Bring your chin back towards your shoulder blades
  • Your eyes should be looking straight ahead

Arms Up Neck Exercises:

  • Breathe in
  • With your hands, raise your arms up towards the ceiling
  • Squeeze your shoulder blades together
  • Tilt your head back
  • With your palms, reach towards the ceiling while raising
    your shoulders up
  • Breathe out
  • Bring your shoulders down with a slight bend in the elbows
  • Raise your arms up again
  • Repeat 10 times

These neck exercises should feel good and be relaxing. These
movements should help relieve any neck stress or stiffness. There should be no
pain with any neck exercises or stretch exercises done. Other neck exercises
will be described at a later time. Enjoy Christmas today!
