According to statistics, the average adult in the US spends about 2-4 hours a day tapping, typing, and swiping on their phones. Not surprisingly, this digital addiction quite often leads to certain serious consequences — the constant looking down at your device puts additional pressure on the front and back of your neck.
Viral Inspiral gathered the easiest ways to relieve neck pain and improve your posture at home.
1. Tennis ball massage
What to do:
- Grab a tennis ball and start massaging the base of your skull with it in different ways.
- If you feel a tight area, add pressure to it for about 20-30 seconds, then release and continue massaging.
Results: A tennis ball will help you restore your neck mobility by digging into your soft tissue and breaking up the tightness and stiffness in your muscles.
