This stretch is great for relieving stress and pent up tension from the day. It can be done seated or standing, so you can do it anytime throughout the day when you may be feeling stressed out.

Step 1. Begin by standing straight up with your arms down by your side, looking straight ahead for the starting position.

Step 2. Reach your right hand over your head to your left ear, and gently pull your head towards your right shoulder. 

Step 3. Drop your shoulders and allow the weight of your hand and gravity to stretch the side of your neck.

Step 4. Hold for 30 seconds and repeat on the opposite side.

Step 5. Repeat the stretch on both sides when done.
