Stop Overloading your backpack

Stop Wearing a bag on one shoulder

Wearing your bag on one shoulder can put unnecessary pressure on it, in the long run, this can result in serious neck pain. It is best to wear your bag on two shoulders and walk with a steady gait while at it.

Stop Holding your phone with your shoulders

Your shoulders are not for receiving calls. But, this habit is rampant among many phone users who use this part of their body as a prop while making or receiving phone calls. If this habit helps you multitask, it is helpful to put all other duties on hold while speaking over the phone and resume after speaking.

Pay attention to your posture

The way you sit, stand and walk can determine if you will have an amazing posture. This also applies to a stiff neck. If you sit or walk haphazardly, your neck will bear the brunt because it is located between your back and head. As a solution, exercise often to achieve a posture that will not trigger neck pain.

Doctor’s office

If you suffer from a stiff neck frequently, pay your doctor’s office a visit.  Severe neck pains can lead to  headaches, nausea, vomiting, night sweats and the inability to fall or stay asleep.
