By  |  2 Comments
Ohh, aah and ouch! I know! That back pain can make you feel really miserable. Here are ten tips that will help you take care of your back. They are simple to follow and benefit you in the long-term.

  1. Stay mobile – keep moving to increase your blood circulation and keep your tissues flexible  
  2. Make sure you get regular exercise – if your muscles are weak, you increase your risk for back pain
  3. Watch your posture – Sit up straight since slouching can strain your spine.  
  4. When you bend over, bend your knees to minimize the stress on your back joints  
  5. Maintain healthy weight as excess weight can increase the pressure on your vertebrae and discs  
  6. Keep your computer monitor and keyboard directly in front of you at work.  
  7. To keep your spine properly aligned, sleep on a supportive mattress and pillow.  
  8. Avoid sleeping on your stomach as it can stress your neck and lower back  
  9. Do not lift weights that are too heavy for you as this can overload the spine and cause disc compression  
  10. Keep your spine healthy by getting it checked regularly  

Stay healthy!

After more than a decade in the corporate corporate work, I retired from my corporate career at 33 to focus on family. A change in priorities, and a passion for writing inspired me to start working from home and I am now living my dream as a writer and editor. I write content for clients, blog for businesses and edit manuscripts for publishers/authors. With six blogs of my own and published contributions across the web (The Huffington Post, PTPA, World of Moms, SheKnows), I writes to collect smiles and donate to charities. I shares stories about all the things I enjoy in life; parenting, mindful living, conversations, coffee, books, food, music, health, DIY, travel, photography and showing my diabetes who’s boss.
