I caught myself deep in work, hunched over my keyboard. I must have been working for four hours straight, with just one bathroom break and one tea break.
I was so in the zone that I didn’t realize that my back was killing me. I stretched out my neck and back, but it was too late. My back was throbbing.
The more I stretched and brought awareness to the pain, the more it ached. It was a catch 22 of pain.
I told myself that I was going to stretch every two hours.
Yeah, that worked really well. I just went back to my same old routine. So I decided to set my cell phone alarm for 10:30 am and 3 pm.
Worked like a charm.
