Hi, I'm JJ Virgin, nutrition and fitness expert of, and today I'm here to show you how to prevent computer related injuries and that's why I'm sitting here on a ball because one of the first things that you can do when you're working on the computer is trade in your chair for a ball because when you're sitting on a ball it keeps you, it forces you to stay in this great posture. If you slump, you fall off, right? That's the first thing. The second thing you'll want to do is have an egg timer right there on your desk and set it to remind you to take breaks. The reason we get these computer related injuries is because we stay in the same position for extended periods of time which is going to impact our neck and shoulder muscles and also our wrist muscles so you want to keep moving around. So set your timer for every 10 to 15 minutes and take a little break. At that time you want to roll your wrists, move your hands around, give that a break. So see how I'm doing a lot of different little movements here because you've been just like this. Okay, so we're going to change it up and then roll your shoulders up and around. You'll want to go ah because it feels so good, let them drop back down, look over your head and when I do that I keep my hands on the ball, okay so it will keep my shoulders down, take my head to the other side and I take my ear tot he shoulder, roll it around, ear to the shoulder, roll it around and then just bring it all the way up and down and ah, that's all you have to do every 15 minutes, a little break, 30 seconds and then you're good to go. I'm JJ Virgin of, and that's how to prevent computer related injuries.
