Hi this is Dana Ranahan at Body Works Sports Physiotherapy in North Vancouver and we’re here today to talk about some posture break tips. We’ve left a tip before about seating yourself back in the chair and keeping your neck long. So some of the other things that you can do, every 30 to 60 minutes in the day, you should be taking a break. Sometimes just standing up doing a little side bend stretch, trying to open up through your waist, keeping your neck nice and long as you do that will help do it and then coming back into the chair. That’s something simple you can do. If you feel that you can’t get out of the chair, you can even do that in the chair. Take a nice deep breath in and out and stretching. So that’s a nice posture break. Try to find something you can do every 30 to 60 minutes to break your posture. Sometimes it’s just looking away from the screen will help your eyes to readjust.
