Low Back Pain Relief in 20-Minutes!
Desk job giving you back pain?
Did you know that in the United States, alone, over 1 million people reported having office/desk jobs? And this doesn’t take into consideration the number of workers who are working from home or entrepreneurs that spend hours at a time on the computer wearing all the hats of our business. It is extremely common to spend more time staring at the computer and begin to slump closure to the screen than it is to get up and reset your body. Continued sitting for long periods of time causes the weight of your torso to dump heavily into your lower back, causing pain, discomfort, and ever serious chronic issues over time.
And as someone who has suffered from back pain, I wouldn’t wish that upon anyone.
Today’s movement is perfect for those who sit a large portion of the day due to work, if your hips are feeling tight, if you experience low back pain or all of the above. Grab a couple blocks or a bolster and allow your hips to find your highest level of comfort while your hips get heavy and start to really open up. Don’t have a bolster? That’s OK! Grab a pillow or roll up a blanket instead!
Keep it up and don’t stop here on your journey. Creating a habit takes time (and commitment). Set a timer on your phone to get in your movement while the coffee is brewing, or while the kids are getting dressed. Believe me, you can make time for yourself! Even if it’s just five minutes or simply standing where you are and taking a few deep breaths.
You have to take time to take care of yourself. I repeat, you have to take time to take care of yourself.
So what are you waiting for? “Alexa, set timer for 5 minutes.”
