Exercise & Relaxation

A note from our colleague, Jamie Grant:

We have been working remotely for almost a month now, and I’ve had muscle spasms in my back on several occasions, and my hips hurt more than normal because I sit so much without taking breaks. I don’t like being uncomfortable or in pain. I don’t know anyone who does. So with the knowledge I’ve gained from physical therapy, I decided to search for some things I can do daily at my desk and for ways I can make myself get up and move around more regularly. I’m sure I’m not the only one who has been experiencing at least one discomfort since we’ve been at home, so I wanted to share some of the links I found.

If you are pain free, fantastic! I don’t wish pain on anyone. However, still consider trying one more suggestions from the articles because movement can have a positive effect on your mood and level of focus, too.

 

Oh yeah … if you aren’t sure if you should be doing any of the exercises in these articles because of pre-existing conditions, don’t forget to check with your doctor—because I am not a fitness expert by any stretch of the imagination. I’m just someone who wants to feel better and wants other people to feel good too.
