Wellness Tips


 

 

Standing
Posture is important! Make sure that you keep your chin up and don't slouch. If you know that you are going to be standing for a long period of time, make sure that you wear comfortable shoes.

Resting or Sleeping
Straining your neck or back while you're sleeping is a very common occurance. We often fall asleep in strange postions where we are not supported properly or our necks are at an odd angle. make sure that if you are going to nap or atch tv in bed, that you're in a supportive position.

Sitting/Working at a Desk
Make sure that you are getting up every 20 minutes to stretch. The type of chair you have is extremely important. It should fit you correctly so that your back touches the chair and your feet are on the floor with knees at a 90 degree angle. Try to avoid looking down at your computer screen, it should be at eye level.

Using the Phone
If you're forced to use the telephone for a long period of time, a speaker or a headset is a must. By all means, try to avoid cradling the phone between your neck and your shoulder as this could cause you to damage the muscles or vertebrae in that area.

Lifting
Lifting objects is one of the most common ways to injure yourself. Even if it is a ligth object, twisting or pulling in the wrong direction when you're not stretched out can have a damagin effect on muscles and the spine. You always want to bend at the knee to avoid lifting anything you know is too heavy.

Overall Physical Activity
If you know that you are going to be working or playing for a while, make sure that you are adequately stretched out and warmed up. Even if it's something light like gardening or just pushing your child on a bike, it's easy to pull something if you're not warmed up.
