Getting stuck in traffic jams can be very frustrating especially when it’s during rush hour. After all, your muscles can get quite tense after the long hours of sitting at your desk at work or even by sitting in the car during the traffic jam. Plus, sitting for too long is not good for your health.

If you feel like you’re wasting time in traffic or feel especially tired then you can actually do some light exercises while waiting for the traffic to move. Here are five exercises with step-by-step guides so you can do this while you are stuck in congestion. Please exercise with caution and only do it when your vehicle is completely stopped.
