Stretching is of great benefit and is easy to do. The tighter your muscles are the less relaxed we can possibly be so make sure to stand up and stretch your muscles every hour. Not just your legs but your arms, back, neck and everywhere else. This will make you looser, more relaxed and it also makes you feel good.
