These days as we work from home we find ourselves spending extended periods sitting in front of desktop or laptop computers. Although many tasks can often be really interesting and engaging, some are just boring but still needed to be completed resulting in long hours spent seated at the desk. This can be quite damaging to a person's health in the longer term so it is important to take regular breaks and to keep moving.
Human beings are designed to move often. Many of us spend a significant period of our day sitting down. The main reason for this is a general increase in physically passive work and a certain lack of leisure sporting activities.
A common reason for a visit to the GP is a back pain. Back pain is often difficult to diagnose but in many cases is linked to time spent sitting at a desk. Longer sitting periods can cause tension and tiredness in back muscles leading to posture degradation, spinal joint and disc issues as well as negative effects on blood circulation and other medical problems.
Working from an office or from home - it is vital to move!
Today, due to COVID-19 a lot of us are working from home - try to follow these simple steps to keep you wellbeing in shape:
Stay safe and be positive !
