As I mentioned in my 2022 goals post, I’m making my back health a priority. I’ve had a sore back for a little while now, which I think was a result of sitting in a not-so-ergonomic chair at my desk all day staring at a computer. As steps to improve my back, I’ve been going to physiotherapy regularly (which always makes me feel better), practicing daily yoga (18 days straight…hooray!), and sitting on a stability ball at my desk.
Everyone, I already feel so much better! I can barely believe it!
While I’ve been going to physio for a few months now, I really think the 18 days of yoga plus the stability ball chair have really sped up my sore back recovery. I was skeptical that either would help, so you can imagine my surprise when the combo of both (or all three changes, in fact) have helped me.
So now I want to buy every Gaiam product out there and continue to build my strength and stability by doing every day things – like sitting at my desk!
I do have an ergonomic chair on its way, but I think I may end up alternating between the chair and the ball throughout the day or week.
