How to solve back pain.

Computers have made our lives easier, but they can also make our health worse... (This is a sponsored post)

Sitting at a computer for hours at a time inevitably leads to eye strain, headaches and a sore back. I suffer from backpain every now and then, cause i work on my laptop and phone every single day. If you have the sam issues, take the time to correct your posture and do a few quick exercises and stretches.

I have partnered up with the Brand SKINS for this post.

Why? Let me tell you why.
SKINS believe that athletes should handle themselves with honesty and integrity at all times. They should play hard and fair be determined and driven with the true spirit of competition.

You can find this beautiful statement on their website. I am so happy a big company like SKINS focuses on true values.

The SKINS leggins are very tight (sort of like shapewear, but still really comfortable) and they will boost your power, speed, stamina and recovery. They provide DNAmic Gradient Compression across the major muscle groups, with the highest compression applied at the calf and gradually decreasing towards the heart. The DNAmic Compression Technology is applied in a targeted dynamic manner, to maintain the integrity of the compression during exercise. That all sounds very fancy and sciency right now but all you basically need to know is: It's good for your body and it looks damn good.
Their shorts and shirts are really airy, soft and just feel comfy on the skin.

Now let me show you their fashion in action.

These are my favorite yoga poses when i have back pain.

1. Downward Dog

There's a reason Down Dog is one of the most iconic postures in yoga. It can rejuvenate your entire body. Spreading your shoulder blades apart will stretch your upper back even more, and reaching your hips up and back will help to open your lower back.

2. Child's Pose

Not only is Child's Pose an amazing way to relax, it can also stretch your entire back and your hips. You can leave your head straight or turn it to one side, like i like to do. Also extending your arms forward will give you an even bigger relief.

3. Twist

To avoid compression and injury, it's important that you create length in the spine before and during the twist. This pose opens the rib cage and chest, enhances digestion and elimination and will release your lower back.

4. Bridge pose

Bridge posture helps to reverse this flexion of the hip flexors, opening your hips up, creating length where there needs to be length, and tension where tension is needed. This is your life saver, when you sit a lot.

5. Wheel pose

When you have mastered the bridge pose, this will push you a little further. Make sure to give this pose time, since it is a little more advanced. Don't do anything you don't feel comfortable with.
Inversions are said to benefit the cardiovascular, lymphatic, nervous, and endocrine systems. Also practicing heart-opening poses may help you feel more empathy for others, patience in frustrating moments.

6. Shavasana

Its always important to relax after practicing yoga. I like to put on my SKINS socks for that. They are really cosy, warm and also improve circulation of the blood. (Therefore perfect for long flights as well)
