Salvere Blog: Our Virtual World, A Blessing and A Curse

by Salvere Health and Fitness
breathe quotesHow many of you spent more time in front of your computer over the last 3 months then you can last remember? Amazing how much going different places or being in an office provides us with opportunities throughout the day to get up and shift our bodies. I hear from many people about how much they didn’t realize they moved throughout the day until the Covid 19 stay at home settled in.
In our next series of blogs, we will break down some specific stretches and movements you can do for that stiff neck, back, legs and hips. First, we want to give you some generic tips to go against the posture created from using Zoom, Google, WebX and any of the other virtual platforms.
By the nature of being “live” virtually, sitting position often gets thrown off a little. Some set ups cause a bit of constant looking down, others sitting in a slightly twisted, leaning or rotated position and some other non optimal positioning. First, see if you can adjust your set up or even find two different options so you can change things up.
In general, our bodies don’t want to be sitting so set reminders to get up at least 1-2x before lunch and same after. If you can move some things to phone calls to give yourself the opportunity to at least stand up or sit differently to relieve some neck/shoulder tension. Take time to straighten your legs and so some light rotation for your torso muscles. Remember to pause and take a few minutes to focus on deep breathing.
It feels as though the last few weeks I see and hear more impacts of the hours at home on the computer. The virtual platforms provide us a great way to stay connected so lets see how we can navigate through the physical impact a little better too!
