Exercise doesn’t have to be this complicated.


A recent post in Apartment Therapy has 10 different videos on desk exercises, from a full 15 minute office workout to simple stretches. While I am in awe of the woman demonstrating “wall squats” AND talking at the same time, I found a couple of videos with easy stretches that really worked.
