If you’re among the millions of people who have been working from home for over a year (or even before the pandemic started), you may have some serious back pains by now. When we sit a lot and not move around much, our backs quickly start suffering and letting us know that something about that lifestyle is wrong. Unfortunately, if your job requires you to be at your desk for many hours every day, you can’t simply change your lifestyle, BUT you can do some small things throughout the day to help you stay healthy and relieve pain.
The Perfect Solution
One of the tools you can use is this pilates workout by Isa Welly. It’s 17 minutes long which means you don’t have an excuse not to find time for it. It offers full-body pilates exercise and helpful stretching moves for relieving back pain. If you do it regularly, it can also help you build a stronger core.
The important thing to remember is to start slowly and listen to your body, because you shouldn’t feel any pain while doing the exercises. Follow your own rhythm and skip any moves that don’t feel good, at least for now. You can always revisit them later when your body has adjusted a bit.
