Catching up on your favourite TV show? Just heard about a show two seasons in and you need to catch up? Looking forward to a night of binge watching on the couch?
Most of us binge watch. It’s just one of those things that is done right now. But like everything else in excess, it can cause serious physical damage if you aren’t careful, and with binge watching, one of the things you need to take care of is your posture.
Here are the main things you should be aware of when you are settling down for a binge-watching session if you want to avoid aches and pains and general soreness;
- - Find a position where your neck and back are not twisted or rotated
- - In between episodes, get up and stretch or walk around
- - Put your feet up on a foot rest or coffee table and slightly bend your knees
- - Keep your lower back fully supported
If you are watching on your laptop or device, make sure the device is at eye level and keep your lower back supported as well as getting up at regular intervals to stretch.
