When something harmful or irritating affects a part of our body, there is a biological response to try to remove it. Inflammation can be uncomfortable, but it means that the body is starting to heal itself.

Does your line of work involve tedious and repetitive actions like typing? Do you habitually assume a poor posture for long periods of time? These things often result in pain, numbness, and tingling sensations because of extreme muscle exertion. Movement becomes restricted, less precise, and your pace slows - putting your productivity score below average.
For a fruitful and worry-free day, here are activities you can try to lower the risk of muscle problems:
a. Shake it off. Break off from any repetitive movements. Standing for the longest time? Take a seat and try rotating your ankles gently. Chair-bound the entire day? Stand, bend over and do some stretches to prevent that "pins and needles" feeling. Do you know that you can also test your nerves in the office?
b. Take a walk. It is proven that taking a quick walk helps you generate ideas and put you in a better mood. Being on the move also keeps your blood circulating properly. In fact, you don't even have to leave the office for walks. You can opt to utilize the stairs or fire exit.
c.Grab a bite. Your mind and body work together. Like a car running on empty fuel, hunger pangs can make you lose focus. Pack these snacks for that midday craving and much needed energy and mood lift:
