POSTURE TIP #3 CHANGE YOUR DIGITAL HABITS
Change Your Digital Habits Tech, texting and computing have made posture the new major public health issue. Prevent neck pain, backaches, and other postural bio-mechanical problems by using tech intelligently. Don’t Crane and Strain - Look up!!
Lift your phone UP to eye level to prevent you from looking down. Craning your neck to look down trains your shoulders to hunch up and your head to jut forward creating forward head posture.
Keep your shoulders DOWN.
Hold your phone in your hand, and change hands sometimes.
Don’t hold your phone between your ear and shoulder.
And, here's a great tip to get you out of your chair..... Get up, stand or walk while you have your telephone conversation. Be aware of your postural habits when using a mobile device – and while you have that phone out take a candid posture picture of a friend or loved one using their phone. Show them what they look like – because awareness is the first step towards making an improvement! 86 8th Avenue, Northcliff, South Africa 0828811635 Book an appointment
