10 essential desk exercises for designers

Desk exercises might not be something you've considered if you're working from home or in a studio. Designers and artists often spend a lot of time at their desks, staring at a screen. We'll assume you know about taking regular screen breaks, but looking after your health at work involves more than having a quick rest.

You can alter your studio to optimise the health of your back, for example by investing in the best office chair and best desk you can afford. It's also worth having the right accessories, such as an appropriate laptop stand or the perfect 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.
