Too much sitting can be seriously harmful for your health. Today we feature an article from mayoclinic.org that will tell you more about it and a blog from bevi.co which will teach you some helpful stretches.
Is Your Work Causing Physical Pain?
DId you know that work-related disorders aren’t just limited to heavy manufacturing or construction? They can occur in all types of industries and work environments, including office spaces. Research shows that repetitive motion, poor posture, and staying in the same position can cause or worsen musculoskeletal disorders.
Staying in one position while doing repetitive motions is typical of a desk job. An analysis of job industry trends over the past 50 years revealed that at least 8 in 10 American workers are desk potatoes.(Hope you are not one of them ! )
The habits we build at our desk, especially while sitting, can contribute to discomfort and health issues, including:
- Neck and shoulder pain
- Musculoskeletal disorders
- Lower back pain
- Carpal tunnelAccording to the Mayo Clinic, more than four hours a day of screen time can increase your risk of death by any cause by 50 percent. There’s also a 125 percent risk for cardiovascular disease.The good news is that moving or stretching is a buildable habit. For starters, you can set a timer to remind you to take a quick walk or stretch. If you’re pressed for time, there are even certain stretches you can do at your desk. Scroll down for the tutorial on working out those computer kinks.
Remember to breathe normally throughout the stretches, and never hold your breath. With each stretch, you may find yourself more flexible. Don’t go further than is comfortable.
