Pain, Range of Motion, Imaginary Boxes, Little Old Ladies and You
Range of motion,. People lose it by living in imaginary boxes.
Increasing number of people have rounded shoulders, head forward, headaches, and stooped backs, largely from spending so much time on small computing devices like smartphones, tablets, laptops, etc. where the screen and keyboard are so close together.
Everyone needs to get out of the imaginary box that so many live in. Those that don’t will be stooped over and in pain as they age. Being stooped over is not a factor of age, is from living with a limited range of motion. If you don’t use it you will lose it.
If you do much writing on small devices need to get the keyboard and screen away from each other. If you have a laptop put it up on a box so you can look at the screen without having your head forward and get a separate keyboard.
If you have a smartphone or tablet it is much harder. Problems accumulate under your radar until you think they just happened out of the blue. They don’t.
Most smartphone and newer tablets have a tiny picture of a microphone on the upper right corner of the keyboard. Use that when you can.
Above all, your body will try to curl yourself into a ball unless you unwind it. Use your range of motion. Stretch yourself out. Use it or lose it.
Now get away from the technology and go out and play.

Surprising findings on diseases and longevity in vegans, vegetarians, and omnivores (which most meat eaters are).
Dr. Michel Greger (who is a vegetarian) found that not only did meat eaters live just as long as vegetarians.
But there was one area in which vegetarians fared much worse.
Vegetarians were twice as likely to die of neurological disease. (brain problems).
His recommendations were Omega-3 and Vitamin B-12.
These are important for everyone by the way. His suggestion for Omega-3s is flax seed. Flax seed must be ground before eating it otherwise we don’t digest it. There are other sources of omega-3s both vegan and non-vegetarian.
Vegetarians must supplement B-12. As sould others – but that is another discussion.
