Tension Relief

 

When you're feeling stressed or uncomfortable, make some moves! If you're performing a task repetitively -- whether it's gardening, shoveling, chopping food, holding tools, stapling -- notice how much tension is in your body when performing the task. To provide relief, alternate tasks frequently and breathe ... slowly you'll release tension from your hands, neck and body. You'll be surprised at how much better you'll feel by doing simple tension relievers every so often throughout the day!

  Health Tips
 

Change your posture to reduce stress and fatigue and increase circulation.

 

Adjust your chair at least three different comfortable ways and use the following positions throughout the day: A reclined position for telephone calls, a level seat position for meetings and a forward tilt position for key boarding.

 

Plan your day so you change tasks often; it will help refresh you and reduce that "end of the day fatigue" feeling. Great lower back relief!

 

Raise height of chair 1/2" to 1" when your seat is in a forward tilt position (generally 5 degrees). Avoid leaning with full body weight on one chair arm (this puts too much pressure on nerves, neck and shoulders).

 

Take breaks, walk to get water, coffee or to use a printer, or step outside and breathe fresh air!
