Stress is such a buzz-word these days, isn’t it? From detoxing with ‘green juice’ to staring at the sun and meditating for 8 hours a day, so many activities and media campaigns have now become obsessed with tackling this elusive enemy. We can’t avoid the presence of some advert, some poster, some model telling us that her solution is the answer to stress, anxiety, and tension. But, what is the truth? How can we really get to the heart of dealing with stress… and why in the world is it so important to do, anyway? Fear not – in this post we help make sense of all the mixed messages, we go through what stress really means, and, of course, how you can start defeating it in your own life. Ready? Let’s get started.
When the pandemic hit it seemed as though there was a mass exodus to work from home: from store managers to doctors, everyone unplugged their PC’s, loaded them in their cars, and set them up in the kitchen, living room, and garage – for those fortunate enough to have a study, the computer now has pride of place next to the photo of grandma. Now, working from home has its benefits, right? You can do your laundry and still hop on that Zoom call, or you can help the kids with their homework and still find time to fill out that spreadsheet for tomorrow. Yet, as good as all that sounds, there are some down sides, too… what about that gnawing pain in your neck? How’s your back today… a little off? How many times have you tried to stretch your shoulder out yet have had no luck? As you’ll see in this post, remote working can have pretty dramatic effects on your body if you’re not careful: we’ll run through what those are AND how to resolve them so that you can get back to a 9 – 5 that resembles some type of normalcy. Here we go!
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
