Take Ergonomic “Microbreaks”

Working often places people in awkward postures throughout the day. Maintaining these postures and compressions can impede flow of blood, impinge nerves, and injure your soft tissue.

When typing or operating machinery it is critical to take “microbreaks”. For every 30 minutes of work, try to rest for approximately 30 seconds to 1 minute.

Don’t work through the pain even if it’s only for a little bit. Anytime you start to feel pain, your body is trying to tell you something, so listen to it! ! Taking a short break for even a few seconds here and there can benefit you greatly in the long run, and help you to avoid getting carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, or even arthritis.

Yours in health,
Jenn
