Problogger.net recently published a post written by Massage Therapist Lovelyn Bettison from Art of Balanced Living and Message Therapy Benefits. The post covers tips such as posture, preventing carpal tunnel, ergonomics, and self massaging. I’m willing to bet that carpal tunnel is probably a bloggers worst enemy. There have been times when I have worked at my pc for 18 hours straight and boy, have I regretted it. The day after these marathons, my right arm which is used to move and click the mouse was incredibly sore. I couldn’t turn my right hand a certain way and things became hard to grip. I believe this was a mild case of carpal tunnel and it wasn’t fun.
I’d say out of this therapist list of tips, I have failed every one of them. I have a bad habit of slouching in my computer chair, do not have an ergonomic keyboard, and do not take frequent breaks. I think I am a recipe for disaster but I’ll be changing that within the next few days.
