Dreading the return to your painful desk job this week after the holidays? With the focus and intensity most of you are putting into your work 😉 that nose starts to drift forward, the shoulders round, the upper back stiffens, the tailbone slips underneath you and suddenly you're wondering why you appear to be shrinking 😳🚶‍♀️here are some suggestions for home remedies to prevent future pain. .
🔶THE NECK🔶
🔹Forward Head Posture: this happens when the natural lordotic curve in the neck starts to straighten out over time. The deep neck flexors (front) become lengthened. The short neck extensors (back) become shortened. .
🔹Suboccipitals: a set of 4 muscles reside directly under your head. When the neck is forward, these get extremely tight!
Release them is with 2 tennis balls taped together, or with one lacrosse ball. Followed by a stretch. Think about rotating the head over an axis as you push the chin down & back and back of head up & forward. 🔹Deep Neck Flexors: there are 4 muscles in the front of the neck that help keep the head in alignment. They go to sleep 😴 when the head falls forward. .
Activate them with chin tucks lying on the back first. BUT you can do them sitting anytime, anywhere. To advance them, try lifting the head up less than an inch. How long can you hold that while maintaining a double chin? It should be TOUGH when done correctly 😰
🔹Levator Scapulae: this muscle attaches from the high neck into the tip of the shoulder blade. This muscle typically feels the pain because it's constantly working eccentrically to keep that head up at the desk! .
Hold this stretch for 30 seconds to a minute when feeling that pain creep up. .
🔹Sternocleidomastoid (SCM): this muscle comes from the back of the ear to the from of the collar bone/sternum. With a forward head, it gets real nice and tight 👌
Hold the collar bone/sternum area, tilt the head away as the chin lifts toward the sky. 
If you're looking down at your phone, DO THESE NOW! lol

Flexibility in your hips sets the tone for so many other areas in your body. Try this great stretch to increase flexibility in your hip flexors.

Stretching keeps the muscles flexible, strong, and healthy, and that flexibility is needed to maintain a range of motion in the joints. Without it, the muscles shorten and become tight. Then, when you call on the muscles for activity, they are weak and unable to extend all the way. Yoga is a great tool to assist in the habitual lifestyle of stretching. The art of practicing yoga helps in controlling an individual's mind, body and soul. It brings together physical and mental disciplines to achieve a peaceful body and mind; it helps manage stress and anxiety and keeps you relaxing. It also helps in increasing flexibility.

Stretching is vital to over all health, recovery and endurance. Keep in mind that this is the pose where you should really work on straightening the back first and then work on the legs. So do not hurry take your time and work on the back first.
.
Keep your hands shoulder width appart and your legs hip distance appart and do noy even think of your heels touching the floor. .
Also play around in the pose, this will help you become more aware of it.
.
❗ ALWAYS AVOID THE STRETCH DIRECTLY BEHIND YOUR KNEE OR IN THE GLUTEUS MUSCLES. .

Stretching with @brittanyperilleee 
Each pose, stretch and movement is centered around regaining wider range of motion through lengthening of the muscles. Repetitive short/small range of motion movements performed in lifting can cause the muscles to tighten and shorten.
