You are probably aware by now that too much sitting is bad for you, but do you know why it’s such a pain in the back?
There are a few key factors that may contribute to your back hurting whilst you’re relaxing in your chair.
Take the time to read and reflect on these pointers, and give the strategies a go!
Your low back is rounding out in the chair:
Your upper back is bent over your desk:
Your knees sit lower than your hips:
Your legs are crossed
You are sitting on one buttock more than the other
Your printer is too far away that you have to twist and lean to reach
You are sitting for too long!
Stand every 30min. Put a timer or reminder on your computer. Stand up, put your hands on your hips and stretch your upper body back, chest out for a moment.
Walk around for a minute and then sit back down.
