Combat ‘Work From Home’ side effects with Digital De-Stress Massage
When the Corona virus first hit and millions of people were asked to leave the office and work from home (WFH) till further notice, it didn’t seem like such a bad thing. Many thought life would be so much easier and it was. No long commutes, more time with family and pets, unrestricted snacking, flexible hours and casual dressing. Hurriedly, couches, dining tables and kitchen counters were converted into work stations.
Today, five months later, people haverealized that WFH isn’t as great as they thought it would be. The less-than-ideal work from home setup without ergonomic chairs, keyboards or computer monitors, proper lighting is taking its toll on our bodies. Sitting too long, slouching on sofas, extending your wrists, staring down at your laptop, etc. have put physical stress on the body resulting in throbbing backs, tight hips, cramped legs, stiff necks, sore shoulders, headaches and fatigued eyes to name a few!
It’s time to listen to what your body is telling you! If unaddressed, these symptoms could turn into other chronic musculoskeletal disorders such as carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, or muscle and tendon strain.
Here are 6 tips to help combat pain while WFH.
- Make your work environment more ergonomic
- Vary your posture throughout the day
- Take frequent breaks
- Do deep breathing and desk stretches often
- Practice yoga to stretch muscles and soothe the mind
- Get regular massages
