We sit at the desk for hours and hours on end, and it doesn’t seem to give us any trouble….but then – for no reason – we’re stiff and sore on a Sunday after 2 days of rest.
Or, one day you just wake up with a sore neck, or headaches for what appears to be “no reason”.
Here’s two quick tips ANYONE can do every single day to really change your posture – and your pain!
- Clean your teeth on one foot. Sounds funny, but it’s the No 1 exercise I give my Olympic athletes! You need to clean your teeth anyway – so why not? Put one leg straight out in front of you (hold the bathroom cabinet if you need to). I promise this is one of the most amazing exercises you will ever do!
- Stand on one foot. Truck drivers have to stop to refuel. Office workers need to get up to go to the bathroom. Everyone makes a cup of tea or coffee, or gets a cool drink from the fridge. Whenever you can – stand on one foot – with the other leg straight out in front of you. Again, sounds silly – but it honestly is the No. 1 way to start to improve your seat, posture, balance – and pain!
Employers: avoid a lawsuit!
If your staff sit for long hours – you are inviting future lawsuits. If you have truck drivers, or taxi drivers, or anyone that sits at a desk for long hours – there are ways you can avoid future lawsuits.
Our very simple, easy to follow program can help your staff regain their former pain-free movement – and even if a lawsuit does come in the future – at least you can show you did everything you possibly could to help prevent your staff from pain and injury.
