How To Sit At Your Desk – Dramatically Reduce Lower Back Pain

The average person sits for about 9 hours a day. Minimum.

Our sedentary lifestyle has been a catalyst for so many chronic health conditions.

As soon as you sit down, your glutes and core shut off. Your metabolism slows down. Your digestive system is suppressed. Not to mention the effects this has on your posture (if you’re not mindful about it).

Ever walked into one of those tech offices (you know the ones where you have people sitting for hours and hours writing code)?

The people working there completely adjusted to their desk environment…

…Shoulders slouched, forward neck, curved spine.

Your desk environment should adjust to YOU.

And the crazy thing is that even when these individuals stand up and walk, it’s hard for them to re-align their posture because their bodies feel locked.



How Long Should You Be Sitting

You should aim to change positions every 20 minutes.

Some people complain that the reason they want lower back relief is that they’re tired of having to switch posture frequently to get relief. While I understand that it’s frustrating to have the nagging pain forcing you to move each time…

…We aren’t built to sit for hours at a time. The human body was built for movement. Your cells thrive when you’re moving. So the idea that you just have to find the “right sitting posture” so you can stay there for 8 hours is WRONG.

Yes, it’s important to sit properly (and I’m gonna show you how in today’s video) but you still have to switch it up. get up and move around.

Because no matter what posture you’re in, being sedentary will have negative effects on your body. Period.

How To Sit At Your Desk – Dramatically Reduce Lower Back and Neck Pain

Click the video below to watch step-by-step how I adjust my work environment to fit my needs. I’ll show you how to sit to reduce lower back pain and get relief.

You’ll learn how to stabilize your hips to feel supported. And how to avoid neck and shoulder pain.

Notice how I don’t use a normal office chair. I have two but I don’t use them because they are restricting (I should probably schedule a trip to Ikea to see if I can find one that fits my needs – I hate shopping haha).

But the reason why I use a normal chair is I’m able to open my legs (you’ll see what I mean in the video) and it’s easy to add a lumbar support if I need to.  I feel like you need to adjust to a normal office chair. I don’t like that.
