🧔🏻 For the next couple of #THRIVINTHURSDAYS, we thought it would be helpful to review some common household movement and posture faux pas. Today, let’s talk about sitting. Sitting is not the best position to be in all day but lets face it we have to sit from time to time. The biggest things to keep in mind while sitting at home is making sure that you are:
In a chair that you can use a pillow behind your back/pelvis for support
That you are not sitting for longer than 1 hour at a time
If possible have your butt a little higher than your knees
I would also like to add that sitting on the couch while on the computer is just a bad idea, don’t do it. If you find yourself having a hard time achieving this position it may mean that you have a mechanical restriction of some sort and need help, which any Physical Therapist that is worth a damn should be able to help!
Happy sitting! (But only for short periods of time, because sitting sucks ;) )
Please feel free to also reach out to Lauren or myself with any questions you may have.
See you all soon!
