We can’t deny the shift towards the modern lifestyle is taking its toll on our health. Despite the positive impact technology has over our lives, the fact most of us spend hours and hours on end working with electronics, be it at home or the workplace, should already be alarming to us. More screen time means less time for physical activity. Being stressed out on a daily basis is nothing new under the sun, but all that chronic stress can certainly make one feel worn out and lacking energy necessary to tackle the tasks every new day brings. Add to that aches and pains and you find yourself living in discomfort.
With up to 80% of Australians experiencing back pain sooner or later in their lives, and 10% experiencing some disability as a result, according to the NHPA (National Health Priority Area), we’re definitely no strangers to what it’s like going day after day in pain. This means it’s time for a change in our habits; out with the old bad ones and in with the new healthy habits. If you simply can’t stay away from electronics even for a day, you can at least reduce the amount of time spent in their company, and if you want to really amp up your well-being, resort to ancient old techniques like massage and make it part of your lifestyle.
I know what you’re thinking, you don’t always have the time or money for trips to a massage therapist, but that’s when you should give a hand held massager a try. These types of massagers were specifically designed to provide easy and effective reflexology massage. While they can be found in a variety of forms, from balls and rollers with long studs for an excellent grip to increase sensitivity, to those made from durable polymer for deep and sustained pressure on a certain muscle, they’re all created to give you the muscle relief you need.
A hand held massager can immediately eliminate muscle tension, as that of your neck and back for example, and reduce stress and anxiety which means regular massaging can be your source of a stress-free daily life. Considering this adds to the relaxation of your body, using a massager often can significantly improve your sleep. Since it can ease your muscles, it can also improve your workout routine if you have any, or inspire you to get active thanks to getting muscle tension out of the way. A plus of having a massage with your hand massager is saving money on paying trips to massage therapists along with being in the comfort of your home.
Massage is something that’s recommended as often as possible, as the benefits can more than make your life all the more enjoyable. Unless you’re a person dealing with blood clots in veins, have weak skin and bruises, open wounds or a bleeding disorder, you can make massaging part of your daily indulgences.
