(Fit) Exercise for us who sits a lot...

Found this article from BrightSide, and I think it is good for us who tends to sit a lot in front of our editing program:



This exercise will perfect your posture

Back extension is a widely used exercise. Specialists apply the exercise not only in sports training, but also in medicine. Back extensions, if practiced regularly, will help you get rid of round back and discomfort in the spine and will give you a perfect posture. Office workers, or pretty much anybody who tends to sit a lot, will find this exercise helpful.

Everybody at Bright Side does this exercise before working on all the amazing articles.

Original position. Lie down on your stomach and put your forehead on a yoga mat. Put your arms parallel to your body and press your palms against your thighs. Straighten your elbows. Put your legs together, and your toes should be slightly drawn.

  • Exhale. Lift your head, chest and the top part of your stomach while keeping your arms and legs in place.
  • Inhale. Slowly go back to the original position. Repeat the exercise 10 times.

Do this exercise 3 times a week and you will feel an improvement in glutes, back and stomach muscles. This will also positively affect internal organ functions, and you will feel much better overall.

How Only 15 Minutes of Walking Can Change Everything

Although I do a power flow Yoga practice 3-4 times a week for about 50 minutes in the morning, I did for awhile do this 7 min High Intensity Interval Training routine this past winter and it really made a difference.

"As I wrote today, I did 40 squats, 40 push-ups, and 20 sun salutations, in between adjusting my dorky lumbar support pillow. I ate a banana, drank a bottle of water, and went for a walk around the neighborhood when I finished. All of those things might seem distant from digital media, but they meant that I was able to get work done at a calm pace without hurting my body. This article will detail healthy practices for computer workers, and how to avoid injury while still being productive."

Just a little reminder especially to those laptop users and cellphone users who keeps looking down a lot...

Your head is quite heavy, this can hurt your neck and spine.

Although this article is intended for computer gamers, but I believe it is also good one for editors.

After being partially housebound for two years following a back injury, I'm rediscovering the joys of taking longer walks, up to 2 hrs at my beloved local flea market. It's been a challenge to get the vertical geometry figured out, but it's liberating to be able to put down the cane for a while.

Lately I have been spending more times going out, and running in the streets.

But, still, a lot of times spent inside the editor room....


Looks like need to add more times for outdoor activity when not doing editing...


Even though this is an ad for Velux, but I believe it is also containing general message we should think about.

As I get older, I've figured out that the only noninvasive interventions for alignment and inflammation are muscle strength and exercise, respectively.

I'm substituting vitamin D3 for some of my steroids, and legal cbd for most other otc painkillers. Walking is 'da bomb.
