Working from home has become the norm for many people during the pandemic. And while some savor their new working conditions, others don’t. One common complaint from people who work from home is that they have newfound aches and pains they never had before.
One main cause of these complaints is that people often don’t work under the most ideal conditions for their bodies when their office is the kitchen table, living room couch or bed. In the office, you may have an ergonomically-designed workspace that reduces the likelihood you’ll strain muscles in your back, hips, shoulders and neck while you work.
At home, your working conditions often have you sitting at the wrong height or looking at your computer from an awkward angle. You may also be sitting more than usual because there are no meetings to attend or co-workers’ desks to walk to. You don’t even have very far to go when it’s time for lunch or you need to go to the bathroom.
One way to combat all the extra sitting you’re doing is to stretch. Just a few minutes a day of stretching can help reduce stiffness and ease aches and pains.
