Infographic: 10 essential desk exercises for designers

Desk exercises are necessary for many reasons. Whether you're working from home or in a studio, designers and artists often spend long hours sat at a desk and staring intently at a monitor. We'll assume you know about taking regular screen breaks, but looking after you health at work involves more than having a rest.

There are ways  you can adjust your studio setup to ensure you're less likely to get a bad back, things like investing in the best office chair and best desk you can afford will help, as will having the right accessories, such as an appropriate laptop stand or the right second screen for you (see our best monitors roundup for some 4K monitor options).

However, even with the best setup in the world, sitting at your desk all day can still leave you feeling stiff, sore and de-energised. To help you avoid this, we've put together an infographic containing 10 simple desk exercises that you can do throughout your day. You might even want to schedule them in.
