5 Ways To Minimize Pain While Sitting At Your DeskMar 04, 2021
Is your new dining room office setup causing your low back and neck pain to flare up?
>>These aches and pains can be minimized and even prevented if you find yourself WFH or headed back to the office.<<
Although we're talking about minimizing pain while sitting at your desk, it's important to know that these tips can be applied throughout your daily life.
Below is my approach to pain-free living while you're at your desk.
1. Sit at the Edge of Your Chair
Get your booty far enough up on your chair so that your feet are flat on the ground. This automatically will help you to sit up on your sits bones, but I also suggest a chair with no back and no cushions to force you to sit up straight.
2. Posture Checks
Check-in with your posture throughout your day to make sure that you're not sitting in your low back or have your shoulders up to your ears. A tip I always recommend to my clients is to set a reminder on your phone so you don’t have to think about checking in!
3. Standing Desk
This is an awesome way to switch up your body position throughout your day. You don’t need to go out and buy a fancy desk, just grab some plastic tubs to set your computer on so it sits at a comfortable height while you stand.
4. Exercise Ball
I'm okay with you using an exercise ball while you're sitting at your desk as long as you're not cheating! This is where checking in with your posture is super important to make sure that you're not tucking your pelvis.
Weaving in some gentle movement exercises to reconnect with your core and mid-back is a great way to re-energize your body and mind. It will also give your eyes a break from staring at the screen!
