If you work a lot on the computer and sit in the office most of the day then you are bound to start to develop some neck and shoulder pain. To remedy that, you have to take breaks every hour to stretch. Additionally, regular daily exercise is also important. I also found that looking at stereoscopic pictures can ease the strain on your eyes.
For when back at home and if you want to relax, I can also recommend the following two items.
I have been using the Real-Ease Neck and Shoulder relaxer.
This pillow is travel friendly and helps release neck, shoulder and jaw tension. It retails for no more than 24$.
I discovered inversion tables a year ago. I found one for 100$ and figured I can try it out. The inversion table takes a bit of getting used to but at the end, you might end up loving it and using it every day.
The benefits of an inversion table are numerous, let me list a few benefits that I personally experienced:
- Refreshing and energizing: if I am sleepy, a few minutes on the inversion table refreshes me and gives me more energy
- Relieves neck and lower back pain: by inverting, the pressure is taken off my lower back, hips and shoulders. My joints decompress and relax
- Boosts blood flow to the brain: due to the inversion effect and being upside down, the blood will rush towards your head and thus oxygenating more of your brain cells
