5. Shoulder Stretch — Hunched over a split-screen display all day or night, watching radar and AIS targets in conditions with reduced visibility, creates tension and cries out for a shoulder stretch. Reach hands, palms facing forward, behind back, checking in with any feedback from your rotator cuff. Turn palms to face one another and interlace your fingers behind your back. Reach your hands away from your lower back and peel open chest to the sky. Loosen up: Tight shoulders could lead to neck or back problems so consider adding a neck stretch like dropping ear to shoulder while hands are interlaced or gazing over one shoulder and then the other.
