Sometimes, even the most ergonomically designed workstation doesn't stand a chance against late nights and bad habits. Whether you're a midnight sewer or a workaholic desk jockey , poor posture can sneak up on you.
Leaning in, bending over, texting, typing, knitting and sewing - all of these tasks can have a negative impact on our muscles. Hunching over is usually a sign that you have a tight chest and an underused/weak upper back. Over time, this type of posture contributes to the development of a rounded upper back, causing shoulder and upper back stiffness. Stretching the chest and strengthening the back will help to improve this.
