Stretch

I have started doing stretches recently as a way to help relieve some of the tension and pain in my knee. I get pain in my knee because I have a bad habit of drawing my legs up under me when sitting. This isn't a problem when I have something to prop them on (like a foot rest) or when I only do it occasionally. It is a problem when I do it for 8 hours a day at work and then come home and do it on the couch while on the computer. So stretches. And it's already working. This weekend I will get a footstool for at home, and that will help even more. Added bonus: maybe I'll actually be able to touch my toes at some point if I keep this up.

Also, the cats enjoy having me lie on the floor where they can annoy me in new and interesting ways. -_-
