How many hours a week do you spend at your desk, driving a car, or looking at your phone?
Introducing TECH NECK! This is a fun term that Yoga teachers call that forward position your neck is in for those activities.
See that slight forward lean of the head? Thats what we are talking about. You hold this position for a long time (think 40+ hours a week!) and you're gonna have neck issues.
If you have neck pain, ask your teacher for the right yoga practice to LOOSEN UP YOUR WHOLE SPINE. He or she will be able to share the most effective yoga postures to benefit your whole body.
In the meantime, here are three checks you can do to see if TECH NECK is the cause of your neck troubles!
Check your monitor height.
Sit up straight, ears aligned over your shoulders. When you look straight ahead, can you see your monitor? If not, adjust it so you can.
Make sure your feet are supported.
Youe feet should be on the ground with a 90-degree angle at your knees. You can adjust your seat height or get a foot rest to help!
Get up and move!
This might sound like a cop-out, but really! Getting movement in throughout the day is super important. Check in - how long are you sitting at one time? Aim for getting up and moving every 15 to 20 minutes.
