"Workplace pain" is muscle pain that can develop due to the on-going or repetitive demands of your job. You don't have to sit at a desk, however, to experience "workplace pain." Teachers, nurses, construction workers, data processors, salesmen and women, lawyers, doctors can all develop chronic muscle pain. Sitting for long hours at your job can have an adverse affect on one's health.
Stress has another downside: it puts your nervous system into a "fight or flight" mode. Somatic Exerices and frequent breaks to stand, move the arms, walk up and down the hall or simply stand up and "reach to the top shelf" allow the nervous system to relax.
A more relaxed nervous system has been shown to contribute to increased mental focus and creativity. It also directly contributes to improved self-awareness and optimum muscle function. This alone can save you countless visits to the chiropractor, doctor and physical therapist.
