If you have been trying to improve your health in 2021, you might be even more tuned into the aches and pains that have come with the pandemic and having to work from home. Remote working definitely is not for everyone, and with many of us longing for the office, we just have to remember that we might only be a few months away, thanks to the vaccine roll-out. In the mean-time, here’s a run-through of how to make those pandemic aches and pains go away.
Remote Working Aches
If like many office workers you have been forced into pivoting to work from home during the COVID-19 pandemic and you haven’t got much space to work in, then you may be familiar with the aches it can cause. Nobody wants to be slouched up in bed all day, or sprawled across the sofa trying to send emails. But in some cases, that’s the only room you might have.
Fortunately, yoga is the perfect activity that can help get ride of those achey legs, stiff backs, and sore bums associated with remote work. Practiced regularly, yoga can also help you with your mobility, flexibility, sleeping pattern and the reduction of stress. Why not give it a go today? There’s plenty of free classes online, and loads more videos to watch on YouTube – it could do you and your body a world of good!
“Long COVID-19” Pains
If you have had coronavirus during the pandemic, then you may be suffering from some long-term side effects. While many long-term effects remain unknown, fortunately, many that have been reported as affecting our covid-19 “long-haulers” are treatable. If you are suffering from joint pain, some ibuprofen or other similar pain relievers should do the trick. Advanced muscular pain or migraines may require stronger drugs, such as Solpadeine Plus.
Another unfortunate side effect of “long COVID-19” is a loss of smell and/or taste. While this isn’t easy to get rid of, one thing you should avoid doing with a loss of taste is forcing your food down. Just because you can’t enjoy the flavor, this doesn’t mean you need to rush through eating, as this can cause heartburn or indigestion.
[NOTE: If you have been suffering from heartburn or indigestion as a result of “Long COVID-19,” be wary in how you treat it. The drug Zantac – sometimes known as Ranitidine – was recalled recently due to links to cancer diagnoses in some who took the drug. If you know anyone affected, you should advise them to speak with a dedicated Zantac lawsuit lawyer.]
Hopefully, these helpful tips will rid you of any aches and pains that have been brought about as a result of the pandemic. Your health has never been more important, so it is vital that you look after yourself at this difficult time.
