The tech industry is by far the largest of all. It’s venturing into a plethora of other different fields that are not at all tech-related. Yet, technology finds a way around everywhere. You are standing at a bus stop, and you find a beautiful LED display running through a loop of commercials.
That’s just the tip of the iceberg. Cities like Japan have bus stops which require a commuter to dispense tickets through a touch screen fixed at panels. Anyways, it’s not just about bus stops, but about the reach of technology in general.
I suppose that you’ve heard this proverb before:
“With great power comes great responsibility”
Bulging into the depth of this proverb in terms of technology, we can say that here, technology is the power and with it comes the great responsibility of managing it efficiently and most importantly, doing it in a correct manner. The further technology reaches, the necessity of human intervention also increases.
There are thousands of programmers, data scientists, data analysts, engineers etc. all vested in providing the best user experience to the world out there. An average programmer spends around 19 hours a day non-stop working to make ends meet. Engineers face a similar condition, but not as harsh as those poor programmers. I feel a sense of pity for them. Wait, I’m one of them!
Sitting on a chair for 19 hours straight, no matter how comfortable it is, will definitely stress you out more and deform your spine. If you tend to do that on a regular basis, then the one thing you need is God’s help! Although, people like Leslie Nichole at the LeslieNichole Blog have the correct tips to help you maintain your health while giving those extra hours of preference to your work.
Yoga is a powerful medium to rejuvenate yourself. You don’t need to visit a gym every day, getting stoked to stay fit. Even simple steps like the ones mentioned below can help you be on the line. All it takes is just 20-30 minutes of your day. Well, I feel LeslieNichole.com could be a better place than a tech blog to show off those moves!
While sitting at a desk all day, tightness can form in the hips, legs also the neck, back, & shoulders causing pains and discomforts. So these are some yoga poses that’ll help you relax and have a more productive day!
Bound Angle Pose
Sit up tall with the soles of the feet touching with the knees spread open, bringing the feet in toward the pelvis then clasp your hands around your feet. Flap the knees up and down several times sort of like butterfly wings. Sit still and focus the weight of your hips also the thighs into the floor, easing the pain in the sciatic nerve.
Come to a standing position with feet hip-width apart then bring your hands up over your head with palms facing forward and thumbs hooked while bending gently backward, breathe deeply.
Cat & Cow Pose
Start with hands and knees on the floor in a tabletop position. On the inhale, round the spine and curve up into your cat pose. Raise the back and lower the head. On the exhale, arch the back and lift the chest to come into a cow pose. Repeat three to five times.
Begin by laying on the floor, put your hands on the ground slightly in front of you while tucking your elbows into your chest. Push up with your hands, lifting into a slight backbend, remembering to draw the shoulders down while turning your gaze upward.
Half Pigeon Pose
Start on your hands and knees in a tabletop position, then sliding the right knee forward and left leg back. Try to bend the front leg at a 90-degree angle. Sit up tall, on the exhale hinge the chest forward then bring the arms out in front of you.
These are enough to pretty much set you up for the day. Comment in the comments section down below if you would love to have more such poses for rejuvenation.
