6 tips to avoid tiring movements
Every person feels tired after performing some actions and despite all the modern auxiliary devices and devices. These are most often fatigue, pain in the back and hands, swollen legs and the like. After the actions have been completed and when the pains occur, the person least thinks about the causes of excessive fatigue or that the muscles of the body are most often imposed with unnecessary fatigue. People are creatures that make mistakes, so even excessive fatigue is sometimes a consequence of thoughtlessness and stubbornness (to complete a job despite everything).
- Carrying groceries in your hands – if you hold a bag full of groceries with both hands, the load will not be one gram lighter. And the body leaning forward or bent to the side causes even greater strain on the muscles on the arms and back. Women used to use the so-called “frame” to carry loads, and even today this device is still used in some places (a wooden crossbar that is placed on the back behind the neck and on both shoulders, while from the ends of the crossbar hang baskets with food or buckets with water, grain, etc.) . It is advisable to get two equal light bags in which you will distribute the load equally or a shopping cart with small wheels).
- Laundry – some people give their laundry to a laundry service, or wash all their laundry with a washing machine, while some people simply prefer to hand wash bed linen, clothes and laundry. People who like and do manual laundry should be careful about their movements. The trough or container in which the laundry is washed should at least be on a higher stool, and put the rubber hose on the low-mounted faucet.
- You keep your arms straight for a long time due to doing some work – this is where the muscles of the body and the heart get tired. In as many cases as possible (and when possible), try to keep your hands in front of you as low as possible (because this is how you protect the heart and muscles first). Or use the home stairs to reach the required height.
- Manual ironing – people who manually iron laundry expose their muscles to great effort. The position of the body is too strained. Most people avoid ironing in a sitting position because they believe that the laundry is not ironed properly if the iron is not pressed harder. This is quite difficult if the seat is not adjusted according to the height of the ironing table. Use a small chair whose seat can be adjusted to the required height so that you do not iron with a bent back or strain your body muscles in an unnatural position.
- Reading – even a short reading (of a book, magazine or any type of print) is a type of relaxation, after which a person gets more strength to perform other tasks. However, let the reading be in a comfortable armchair instead of a hard chair or the corner of the bed or another uncomfortable position. Reading in a comfortable position (for example with cushions behind the back) relaxes the muscles. The pages or sheets of the book should be well lit to strain the eyes as little as possible.
- The most suitable position for beneficial relaxation of the body was known as far back as the time of the Egyptian pharaohs – even then it was considered that the muscles get the least tired if the waist is straightened when sitting, while the relaxed hands are kept on the thighs, and the feet are spread wide apart with all the weight on the ground. In this “pharaoh’s position”, the muscles are really in a state of perfect rest. And this is one way for people to rest their tired muscles.
