Every woman undergoes a rollercoaster of emotions while at the workplace. It might be the work pressure, or concern about issues at home, or the period pain; her thoughts are endless. With such huge stress come bigger health risks. Our run behind money to need monetary needs, growth in career and several commitments wholly depend on our 9 to 5 schedules and it seems almost impossible to quit the pace. But, how if I tell you there are a few ways that help you cherish your desk time rather considering it a burden.
While mental anxiety could be overcome with proper sleep timings and regular meditation, ways to get rid of the physical pain seems like the need of the hour.
Get over stiff shoulders
It is a common scene in every organization these days that employees remain stuck to their chairs, staring at their computers for long tiring hours. Eventually, your shoulder muscles tend to become rigid, leading to severe pain.
Stretch your arms as much as you can. This is an easy regime to do at the comfort of your desk and is the simplest way to loosen up those tightened muscles. Similarly, rolling the shoulder forward and backward in circular motions will do the need as well.
Let your neck move
The second most common pain occurs at the neck when you keep using the mouse for long hours of time without break.
Tilt your head to the right and hold it for a few seconds. Repeat the same on the left. Make sure you do this regime every one hour to avoid neck strain.
Relax those tired fingers
If your work demand more typing, then it is for sure that your fingers are begging for rest. Give those poor souls some pampering!
Close your palm into a fist and open it up to stretch your fingers. Keep repeating it until the fingers feel relaxed. There are also stress relieving toys that could be squeezed as a massage to your fingers.
Back pain gone in a swish
However comfortable your chair is, it sometimes becomes impossible to get rid of the back pain. In a world full of technology, it is a sad fact that people are facing health issues more than ever.
Proper posture plays the key role here. Keep a 30-minute reminder to check if your back is straight. If you are someone who is married to your chair, it is high time you leave it alone by taking short breaks. Getting off the chair and making brisk walks once an hour is sure going to deal with that back pain.
It is true that to improve economical statuses, meet daily needs, and achieve a visible growth in terms of career and lifestyle, women are committed to their jobs; but, it is also essential to take a break from the hustle and bustle of workplace to relax and de-stress your mind, body, and soul.
