A short message from Russell (Pinnacle Physiotherapist)
Sitting is the new smoking? Lets fix that!
The home office environment is very different to what most of us are used to. The lack of structure, reduced commuting and the absence of co-worker interaction can lead to us spending more and more time in periods of uninterrupted sitting. This educational video looks at the potential negative health effects of prolonged sitting, along with some simple proactive strategies you can implement to help reduce your risk.
Improve your focus, stress and anxiety levels – lets try (box) breathing
With all the uncertainty and unease around at the moment, we can all be forgiven for being a little anxious, lacking in focus and stressed. This video looks at a short and simple technique involving focussing and regulating one breathing. Box Breathing can be used anywhere to assist in relieving anxiety as well as improving focus.
