1. Take Regular Breaks and Stretch
If you work at a desk all day, take regular breaks and stretch. We aren’t designed to sit down for four hours straight. If we do, symptoms will start to show - headaches, tight shoulders, tight neck, loss of movement, and pins and needles.
2. Stay Away from Heavy Lifting
Don’t lift objects heavier than you can handle with ease. Get help if the object is too heavy or awkward.
3. Lift Wisely
Carry objects as close to your body as possible. Try to avoid carrying parcels or babies on your hip. If you must carry the load on one side, alternate sides regularly.
4. Rest Your Feet
When standing stationary for long periods of time, reduce the stress on your lower back by resting one foot on a small object six inches or so high. Alternate feet regularly and at times stand with your weight spread evenly on both feet. Health is balance within the body and if you stress the body or work it too hard, then you must rebalance the body in the form of correct exercises and stretching.
