Achy & Stiff Sitting Behind Your Computer All Day? 5 Ways to Get Relief...

Trust us, we know how you feel. You sit behind that screen all day and the only answer to the achiness and stiffness seems to be popping those pain relievers. But we're here to tell you there are several little things you can do to get some real relief so you can keep on going.

Sitting in a front of a computer all day

Get Up...NOW! – We know, you can sit there for hours without even a drink or bathroom break, but it's the worst thing for you. It's recommended that you get up for 2 minutes once every half hour - walk around, get some water, and do some light stretching for 2 minutes – that's it, just 2 minutes will do a world of good for your muscles.

Posture is KING – If your chair is low and you're hunched over your keyboard with your shoulders shrugged inwards, well, you're really hurting yourself. But, if your sit up straight with your lower back pressed firmly against your chair with your computer screen at the right height, that's good posture and it will relieve the pressure from happening in your spine and between your shoulder blades.

How Old is That Chair – Are you sitting on a relic? If you don't have a chair with great support and you sit for a living, you're doing yourself some harm. Yeah, really good chairs can be pricey, but if you sit all day, then purchasing a comfortable chair should be at the top of your list. Chairs with memory foam and mesh back support set at the optimal height will help to make you feel like a new person.
