Workplace Ergonomics

The term ‘Ergonomics’ refers to the study of people’s efficiency at the workplace. Working on desktops and laptops constantly in a certain posture for hours have proven to be hazardous causing pain and discomfort to oneself.  Drooped, stiff shoulders, lower back pain, strained eyes, fatigue….sound familiar?

The video below shows our current posture while using the computer and how healthy one might feel with a little awareness of basic suggestions and safety tips.  Adopting these habits will benefit adults and children alike and prevent occupational work, school or home stress or disorders such as carpal tunnel syndrome, hunched shoulders, when using computer devices:

Paddle boarder with Whales

A drone records a breathtaking sight of two whales swimming alongside a paddle boarder in the Australian Coast. Top it off with John Lenin’s famous soundtrack ‘Imagine’ in the background. Absolutely surreal!

Its truly a magical movement watching man and animal together as one, gives hope to a possibility of all beings coexisting in harmony. Time stands stills for a brief moment. The lyrics send out a very strong message, makes you really think, doesn’t it?

Back pain, neck pain? Could these be trigger point issues? Let’s yoga it out!

Yoga expert Zubin Atré uses his knowledge of trigger points to alleviate pain caused by myofascial knots. As this video by Michiel Akkerman beautifully illustrates, many pains in the upper back and between the shoulder blades are a result of “trigger points”. Some of the chronic conditions caused by trigger points include frozen shoulder, muscle spasms, chronic neck stiffness and migraine. This video shows how people could treat trigger points themselves. The example given here is self-massage using a ball agains the wall. Yoga is another effective way of dealing with trigger points on your own. Certain yoga asanas performed with appropriate breathing techniques help stretch the muscles affecting trigger points. Practicing asanas regularly dissolves the knots.
