How To Eliminate your Back and Neck Pain by Changing the Chair you sit in!Written by Suzanne Lamoutte
The ergonomic kneeling chair actually encourages you to sit with an upright posture, which leaves your back, shoulders and neck aligned correctly. Your hips are in a forward tilt position, which allows you to sit in a more upright way. When we sit at computer for long stretches of periods hunched over keyboard we are at high risk of damaging our backs. Doing this makes us more susceptible to strains, headaches and body aches. I am sure you know what I am talking about. Especially if you are in front of computer working for hours at a time like I am. The ergonomic kneeling chair actually starts to give you relief you have been looking for all of these years. There is no choice, if your business is on internet, or your working 8 hours or more a day in front of a computer or desk, why suffer if there is a solution. Nobody wants to feel these aches and pains that's why they designed ergonomics.
Sitting for Long Periods of time Makes Your Back and Shoulders feel Weak. The Ergonomic Knee Chair Can Help.
Believe it or not this weak feeling can be because of your posture, way that you sit. I am not a doctor so I am in no way telling you that this is cause of all your back, shoulder or neck pain. But I will tell you about way that we sit that can cause these types of pain. When you sit in that slumped over way that you sit, your muscles are tighting up to prevent us from falling over. You are basically, working out your muscles, but not in way that you would want to. Your necks natural position is to go down. This will then cause shoulders to follow and then of course your back. Doing this leaves you sitting way that you don't want to be sitting, hunched over. Sitting this way is cause of all pain. Look at it this way, when you work out your muscles work out what happens? They become sore! You also run risk of straining a muscle when you work out as well, don't you? Yes! Well you run same risk of straining muscles from sitting way that you are probably sitting right now as you read this. Neck forward, shoulders pulled down and your back is arched.
Well sit up straight, pick up that neck and keep it straight, keep your back touching back of chair, bring those elbows in, and square out those shoulders. It would be nice if you could stay that way, without need to buy a new chair. Not that it is not possible, but trust me I know how hard it is to sit up straight, that's work enough. You eventually end up feeling worse then you did before, but that's only temporary. You need to train yourself to sit up with good posture and it will take some time to get use too. And most of us don't have time or patience to do things like that. This is what ergonomic kneeling chair does. It's an aid to help you to sit up straight, right away. There is no practice there is no time consuming procedure. It's such a great thing. This ergonomic chair has no back, you sit on it and then there is a cushion that you rest your knee's on. It's unconventional, but very effective. You may look at this ergonomic chair and say to yourself, or maybe even out loud, "This chair can't be what you are raving about!". Well it is! These ergonomic chairs are referred by physical therapists, doctors and ergonomists. I would highly suggest taking a test drive on this ergonomic chair. You may just be as surprised as I was, and you may just find relief you have been wishing for. You have nothing to lose but nagging pain in your back, neck or shoulders, by checking into it.
Managing Your Home Based Online Business – 2Written by Roy Thomsitt
In first part of this series of articles, on managing your online business at home, I wrote about many management responsibilities and functions you have rolled into one if you have your own sole proprietor business, with no staff. Your management task is perhaps most difficult of all. You have to manage yourself, in all those different areas of your business such as finance, marketing, purchasing and computing.
I believe that if you think of your new home business as having different areas of management for you to concentrate on, you are more likely to succeed long term. If you can adopt some of techniques of good management, you will end up with a more sound business that will stand test of time. You will be a better decision maker, and it is decisions that dictate progress or downfall of any business. Decision making needs to be unemotional and as scientific as possible, but as much as anything needs to be based on common sense. Good management is often a matter of common sense, and that is why I believe you, whatever your background, can run a successful business limited only by your ambitions.
The other virtue you will need in abundance is patience, and this an area where you definitely need to manage yourself. Impatience brings emotion into your decision making. It also brings self criticism, or criticism of others, when none is either deserved or necessary. Patience, realism and common sense combined will contribute greatly to making you a good business manager. With those three attributes, you will be well placed to learn skills of management in context of your own small business. You will be able to learn how different functions of a business relate to each other and interact.
That is not easy, but over time, if you apply yourself, it will all fall into place. This is where patience is vital. Your age or background do not necessarily matter. I know that in my late 20’s I did not really understand business and how it all fitted together. At 30, I knew I needed some sort of professional qualification, and I decided on management accountancy. The syllabus was tough, with 18 exams over 2 and a half to 5 years. What surprised me was variety of subjects to cover. There were exams in company law, business law, economics, corporate planning, marketing, production, decision making, cost accounting, management accounting, mathematics and statistics. Each subject was very different. Then, at end, I suddenly realized that all of them knitted together. The ones I hated (law) and loved (marketing) all had a place in scheme of things.
You, of course, have no need to study or be an expert in all of those things. But it does help to at least be aware that some of them are, in their own way, critical to your success. If you are taking a long term view of things, which you should be if you are serious about having your own home business, you have plenty of time to learn about those subjects that are most critical for your business:
Whatever your business, this is a very critical function for you to understand and manage, so when it comes to learning all you can, financial management is a priority. Much of this is again common sense, and realism, and there are many tools around to help you keep good financial records. But as I mentioned before, it is decisions that dictate progress or downfall of any business. All decisions you make will have a financial impact on your business. However, good financial records alone will not bring reward of better decision making. If you want to maximize profits of your home business, you may find it helps to have other, non-financial records to aid your decisions. I will discuss this more in part 3 of this series of articles.
