They watch their posture
Thought ‘sit up straight’ was something parents said to annoy you? Turns out, poor posture can cause pain and headaches, and even affect our moods, one study found. “Posture is fundamental to health,” says senior physiotherapist Janani Wijetunga. “I see so many people with chronic back pain, particularly office workers, and posture is a culprit.” Now steal it
“We shouldn’t spend more than 20-30 minutes in one position, so break up long stretches of sitting with exercises,” says Janani. “As well as standing up and walking around for a minute or two, try neck stretches, shoulder-blade pinches and trunk rotations. Do two to five reps of each, holding for 20 seconds.” It might feel weird at first, but it helps reset the brain to make you feel less stressed.
