I’ve seen so many people- workers, students, even stay-at-home mums and retirees- complaining of stiff, sore necks and tight, tense shoulders this year…
People struggling with headaches and feeling like their head weighs a tonne upon their shoulders.
Folks sick and tired of the dull ache in their upper back and between their shoulder blades.
Others irritated by niggling neck pain and tension.
Even kids complaining of soreness and strain while they study!
There’s always one thing in common…
Looking down for long periods!
We look down so much of our day 😳
Whether it’s looking
Down at your laptop or keyboard
Down at your phone or tablet
Down at your documents or books
Down at your kitchen or work bench…
I could go on and on.
Basically, we look down a lot.
Considering our head is like a bowling ball and, as it moves forwards, it hangs off our poor neck, shoulders and upper back, it’s no wonder those areas are feeling the strain.
How often, and for how long, do you look down each day?
This week, while you work,
While you study,
While you use your phone
and while you potter around the house
… try and keep tabs on how much of the day you look down.
