Recharge yourself at Home & Work
Sitting in an upright or uncomfortable position, carrying out strenuous activities and spending long hours in front of computer can make the Fibromyalgia worse. Either you are at home or office, force yourself to take a 5 to 10 minutes’ break after every one hour. This short break improves blood circulation and relaxes the muscles of shoulders and neck.
Stretch Your Neck Muscles
Take 2 to 3 minutes of your precious time and stretch the muscles of your neck, cervical spine. It boosts the elasticity of your neck’s muscles and reduces the chances of soreness from tension around the neck and shoulders.
Try a Simple Neck Exercise
Find it difficult to stretch the neck’s muscles? Then the best thing you can do is – sit in a comfortable upright position and move your neck as high as you can, relaxing your jaw and face’s muscles. Hold it for few seconds and then release the pressure gently.
Move Your Head’s Muscles
Gradually tilt your head to the left side until you experience a light stretch with medium pressure. Hold it for 5 seconds and then release this posture gently. Now repeat it on the right side. However, make sure not to move your shoulders while tilting your head.
Spin Your Head
Sit in a proper upright position and roll your hear in a complete circle, exerting minor pressure. Repeat this simple exercise twice in both directions - clockwise and anticlockwise.
Move Your Shoulders
