Do any of you struggle with back pain? Or maybe aches and pains that you deal with on a regular basis? I know that I often have back aches from sitting in my chair for work, and many times this travels to my neck if I don't get it taken care of. So I have started using some very neat products. Did you know there are many items out there that can help alleviate back pain? Things like tempurpedic pillows? Massaging chairs, etc? It is amazing what you can find when you actually go searching for things like this. I personally love the massaging chair and they also have the pieces that vibrate which you can take out of the chair. There are all types of settings and stuff you can play with so you can settle for a mild massage or something a bit more vigorous. I tend to spend a lot of time in a chair, mainly for my blogging and helping with school, but I know there are people who work from a chair and a desk job can be very irritating on your back and neck. Take a minute and look at my tips below for alleviating back aches and maybe get some hints for working out the kinks.
My number one tip is posture. This will be a big help in how you feel throughout your day. When you are sitting, make sure to sit up straight, tuck in your stomach and pull your shoulders back. If you do this often you will find pressure being taken off your back and neck. Especially when you stare at a computer a lot, you tend to lean forward, almost to the point of being hunched over. Take a minute and check yourself now:)
I try to get up and stretch every 30 minutes. This doesn't take much but if you stand up and do some simple stretches, such as the Cat(rounding your back and then stretching down), walking in place, etc. this will do more than you realize. I always feel better after getting up and stretching.
One last thing I will say is make sure you drink plenty of fluids. This really helps with making you feel alert and just an overall better outlook. What about you all? Any tips on easing that back pain?
