As part of our ongoing mission to spread a greater quality of life around the world we’ve put together a series of blog posts to help you improve your lifestyle. Over the next few weeks we’re going to be publishing tips and advice to help you minimise the impact of office work on your body.
The human body was designed to move, it was not designed to sit down for 8 hours a day. This lack of movement causes issues, particularly when we have heightened levels of stress. We are more emotionally sensitive when we have increased stress levels but what many people don’t realise is that we are equally more sensitive physically too. Simply put: we feel more pain with increased stress.
Here are our tips on how to help you stop your office job affecting your health:
Just How Is The Body Connected? – In the first of our series we share the insight we gain in our daily clinics, which enable to us help ‘fix’ conditions others can’t. This knowledge will help you make immediate improvements in your day to day life by simply making a few tweaks.
Why You Really Should Sit Properly At Your Desk – We look at how the way your body is connected is relevant to your posture at work, looking at common postures which lead to injuries we regularly see. We also examine how you should sit properly to cause less problems.
What Is Pain? – A much more philosophical question than you would imagine. We look at the latest research to understand the variable that give us all a very unique pain experience.
Why Stress Causes More Pain – This is our attempt to get some very complex ideas about pain across to you in simple English. Rather than talking molecules we talk snooker tables to help you easily understand a difficult concept to give you better understanding of your bodies reaction to stress!
How Not To Get Stressed – Finally, following on from our new found knowledge of what stress does to the body, we look at what you can do about it. Some easy-to-implement common sense ideas of how to reduce those stress levels.
