WFH Aches? Here Are Some Alt-stretches
How are you faring with the new ways of working (and learning) from home (WFH)?
Does your daily routine look like a BINGO card filled with ZOOM, webinar, online workspaces, or classes? Have you left space in the day to get outdoors?
Over the past few weeks the variety in my day consists of which nook I choose to work from — my desk, the ‘starbucks’ nook, the dining table, or the comfy couch.
All of this variety comes at a cost — new aches and pains. The two I’m noticing most are the phone elbow and the hunchback.
I’m sharing two videos — one for the phone-elbow and one for the hunchback. Each offers a new perspective on why it’s bothering you and what you can do to help beyond traditional stretching and self-massage.
What WFH aches are you finding? I’d love to hear. You can drop me a quick note. What video advice would you like to see in the weeks ahead?
Stay healthy and active!
