Stretching Reminders

Are you having trouble remembering to get up and stretch throughout the day? According to the annual data we receive from our healthcare providers, pains, sprains and other musculoskeletal problems have consistently topped the list as the number one health related issue facing Clackamas County employees and their families. More and more studies are finding that stretching breaks have a number of benefits, to include a decrease in injuries, reduction of pain, increase of flexibility and range of motion, increase of self worth, and a happier and healthier work community.

For those of us stuck in front of a computer, here is a process for setting up a Microsoft Outlook reminder without filling up your Outlook calendar. This will help you remember to get up and stretch.

If you need clarification on this process, contact Michelle Raethke at
