DON'T LET DESK POSTURE KILL YOUR BACK
Sit up straight! You've been told that your entire life. And yet you still find yourself slouching at the desk. 😕 Why? Because you're human.
Telling someone to sit up ⤴ straight all day simply builds an unrealistic expectation. You're going to slouch. And that's ok. You're going to have bad posture. And that's ok. What you need is a simple routine to keep yourself from getting stuck there.
😯 Discomfort sets in as a signal for you to move. Ignore it, and that discomfort becomes 😣 pain. Ignore that, and that 😖 pain stays with you even after you've gotten up. And while it's ideal for you to get up and walk around 2 to 3 times an hour, sometimes you just can't leave the cubicle. So here we go again. Another drill you can do right at the 💻 desk.
For this one, we are going to take our spine through cycles of flexion and extension. There are 3 variations.
☝ Tilt the pelvis back and forth as you move to get motion to the lower lumbar spine.
✌ Lean forward and keep the pelvis stable. You'll now drive more thoracic and upper lumbar motion.
👌 Put it all together. Start at the neck and curl all the way down until you tilt the pelvis backwards. Then reverse it into an anterior tilt and spinal extension.
Don't push into any painful areas. If you don't tolerate a motion well, just move ⛕ around it. You'll most likely find that it opens up after a few go rounds.
Get moving. Get loose. And then get back to work.
