We all spend too much time sat down. Especially during a pandemic. And with this comes a weak back and more often than not, poor posture.
No matter how ergonomic the chair or how many cushions you stuff behind you, after a few hours sitting down we find ourselves slumped with a rounded back, working for hours in this not so ideal spinal position.
After weeks, months, sometimes years sat like this, the muscles in the back basically forget how to work. Meaning when you eventually stand up, they can't support your spine.
Ultimately this will lead to walking round with your head down, struggling to stand up straight, possibly in pain, catching glimpses of yourself in photos or in the mirror looking like the hunch back of Notre Dame. Sound familiar?
