No, I am not just talking about the frustrations you can get trying to figure stuff out. But I am talking about the money and time spent with massages and physical therapists working on my NECK. I found that I can prevent so much my self.
A yoga class has increased my awareness about tuning in to my body. So when I am intense and focused on my computer screen my neck moves forward. My shoulder blades try to introduce themselves to each other and all my tensions have a networking party in my neck.
What Can I Do?
- I must do neck stretches even while at the computer.
- I must get up and stretch my whole body about every hour.
- I should not multi-task as much (Not a boomer thing)
- I should do deep breaths.
- I do walk away when things are too much to figure out.
Have I arrived yet? No, right now I have that one-sided pain in the neck and headache soooo I am going to get up, stretch, do another task besides phone work , paper work, or presentation work. I am going to put on some music and do the boomer blogging dance.
Bummer, Ray is not here to join me so it is ok to have my own blogging dance performance.
Does anyone remember the funky chicken? “Get on the good foot?” or some great gospel will work.
What’s your favorate de-stressing boomer music to move by?
