Exercise and Movement is Paramount!
Sitting causes twice as much strain on the back than standing, so do your body a favour and prevent further problems later in life by reducing the amount you spend hunched over your phone, tablet or computer. Stop sitting, go for walk, get some exercise – your body isn’t designed to be dormant.
Keep the following in mind:
- Have a break every 20 minutes
- Change your posture
- Keep the device at eye level
- Keep Hydrated – drink plenty of water!
- Limit your time on e-devices
The importance of the workstation
As a Chiropractor and Alexander Technique instructor, I’m very keen on clients having good workstations and postural habits when it comes to the use of electronics, so please call if you have any questions or would like advice.
