There’s no mistaking the fact that there’s no replacement for getting up and moving around as often as you can, especially during the workday. However, if you do find yourself at your desk for hours on end like most of us, these sitting exercises from AOL Healthy Living can help.

Many of them are simple, like simple waist twists and shoulder shrugs to keep your joints limber. The additional exercises, like the Agni Sara and the Back Release Pose, are a bit more conspicuous, but they can help you stretch your back and spine and avoid the slouching and posture issues that come with sitting all day at a desk or computer. How do you manage to stay active at a sedentary job? Leave your tips in the comments.
