Is Your Nine to Five Taking a Toll on Your Body?
If you spend your work day sitting in front of a computer screen you may be unknowingly causing serious harm to your body. As a graphic designer, I know all too well about the negative side effects of a desk job. On an average day I find myself sitting for at least 7 hours and I can honestly say that I have some of the world’s worst posture. I squirm and slouch, lean and tilt, and by the end of the day my back is hurting and my energy level is at an all-time low.
If you find yourself getting sucked into a laundry list of bad habits like me MAYBE it is time you do something about it! Luckily I’ve discovered an essential life hack for fixing my poor posture at work – it’s called yoga.
