Body awareness and preventing aches and pains


I explained not so long ago about the importance of body awareness and preventing unnecessary aches and pains by simply paying attention on how you use your body. Sitting is one position that we really need to be aware of , because we do almost everything sitting down. I explained my rule of the three 90’s. Meaning that as you sit on a chair your elbows, hips and knees should be at 90 degrees. It is like a natural ergonomic way to watch your posture as you sit and do your tasks. If you keep these joints at this particular angle, you could prevent aches and pains associated with the sitting position. For example, if your elbows are at 90 degrees your shoulders will be down and relaxed, away from your ears. You will not be slouching in front of the computer and your upper back and neck will be aligned. Remind yourself to be aware of your upper body and you will suffer from fewer headaches, neck, shoulders and back pain. Make an effort to get rid of bad habits as you work in front of the computer, it is worth the effort. I am planning to review this week the rest of my rule of the three 90’s.
