I hurt myself this week. Why? Because I did NOT use good stretching techniques during hours of editing. Therefore, I ended up with a neck spasm and vertigo. So how do you avoid falling into the same trap? Do as I say, not as I do.
(This is not medical advice and is not intended to cure anything, including but not limited to: ice cream cravings, writer’s block, or book hangovers. Don’t start any exercise anything without talking to your doctor, etc, and so on.)
- Make sure to get up every hour! Take a few minutes, stand up and get your blood flowing.
- Stretch your neck! I mean, we’ll all pretend that we sit in the “appropriate sitting position” while typing. Even so, neck stretches are a must. Roll one way then the other. Add in a few forward/backward stretches and get those side-to-sides in too.
- Roll those shoulders! Forward and back. Arms down.
- Flail your arms! Stretch them out and roll them forward and back.
- Touch your toes! Well…pretend you can touch your toes. Hold it for a few seconds and go down even a little more.
- Arch your back a bit, run in place, play your anthem, then get back to work.
- Remember to sit correctly. Or at least kind of correctly. STOP SLOUCHING.
There. Now you’re ready to change lives with your words.
