Dr. Erin Sherwood- Chiropractor
Spring has finally sprung! With the snow melting, it reveals the return of green grass and spring flowers popping through the soil. Most notably, it also reveals the dead fall and leaves that I was not able to rake before the snow hit us last year. Every spring, I see an increase in patient’s coming to the clinic with lower back pain after raking and spring cleaning their garden beds. I too have also been left with an achy back following a long day of raking if I have not taken the proper steps to ensure my entire spine is working and moving optimally.
The last 17 months may have been extremely trying, but there have also been positives. Many learned a better work life balance or found comfort working from home. Although you may be excited to be back in the office, socializing with your colleagues, it is important to maintain what was gained, and our wellness team at Natural Alignments, can help.
How can we improve our work life balance now that we’re no longer working from home?
There are 3 main areas of focus to create our perfect work environment: your physical desk set up to reduce the strain of working from a desk setting boundaries to improve your mental health, and nutrition for long sustained energy.
