Nowadays most people spend about half of their life working in the office. But due to negligence towards working style and health, one has to face problems like backache and mental stress. Some of the main reasons behind these are lack of exercise, unfavourable chairs, unstable routines and imbalanced diet. We understand that it is not easy for you to completely change your working style. But with a slight change in your routine (by creating favourable conditions for your health), you can have a positive effect on yourself (it will keep you fully fit.)
Sit on the chair properly
The way you sit on the chair affects your health and posture to a great extent. To sit on a chair, place your hip bone on the seat and back joint. While pulling the shoulders backwards, stretch the muscles of your lower abdomen inward and keep the waist straight. There is no need to hold your breath to do this. Just try to sit in this position for as long as possible.
Stretch during work
Stretch yourself after every hour of work and try to walk around the room. Do not stick to the chair. Get up at a gap of one and a half hours and do some walking. Apart from this, if you wish, you can also do some exercises sitting on a chair to give rest to the body.
A little exercise too
Tie both hands on the back in the same way as the hands on the front. Now pull your shoulders back and rotate the neck clockwise then anticlockwise. Touch the chin first at the base of the neck, then on the right shoulder, then on the left shoulder, and then move up and down. This exercise will give relief to the waist, neck and hands.
Move your body
Drop the pen cap or something from the side of the table. Get up from the chair to lift it. It smoothens blood circulation in your feet and relieves tension.
Take a walk
Whenever possible, get up from your chair and walk. While walking, tie your hands behind the waist somehow and pull the shoulders back. If possible, raise your leg backwards without kneading once or twice, repeat the same process with the other leg also. This will not only help in blood circulation in your feet but will also protect the feet from swelling.
