Simply health invited me to the yoga workshop at the Dance works in central London and I took the opportunity straight away!
WHO are they?
I've always been interested in yoga from a very young age as it helps you relax and pretty simple- even for a beginner!
YouTube and Google were the main sources to help me start my own yoga session in my bedroom! NOTHING beats an invitation from Simply health to a yoga workshop with other bloggers!
Yoga is great for reliving pain especially back pain, which was the main reason for conducting this yoga session. As I'm always on shoots, on late promo shifts including uni on top of blogging my back hurts a lot and it is imperative to have a good posture. I was happy to hear that simply healthy recently launched their new app to raise awareness of back pain! It's dead SIMPLE TO USE.
Also what is truly great is the fact it is very specific to your needs, includes exercise plans which is useful and informative.
SIMPLY HEALTH says:
“Our free back care app has over 20 exercises to help people to cope with their back pain. There’s also much more information about how to prevent back pain, at home, work or when out and about.
“Users will also be able to use the app to keep a diary of their back pain, watch videos, form an exercise plan which they can follow and find qualified practitioners in their area.”
84 % of 18-24 year old have admitted to suffering some degree of back pain in the last year according to the latest research."
From the Survey of 3,000 adults from Simply health shows a nation on the point of potential back pain. Experts have continued to discuss the "iPosture generation"; which basically means developing all the bad habits that could lead to back pain. Majority of age groups spend a lot of the time in front of their laptops, PC or tablets. A shocking combination of work and home screen time (excluding traditional TV) means that over 55s spent an average of 6.64 hours a day (the least) versus a massive 8.83 hours a day in front of screen time for a typical 18-24 year old.
To support individuals with back pain and those wanting to prevent it Simply Health and BackCare have developed an App which is FREE. The app basically allows users to input data on the type and location of their back pain. This is then tailored advice as well as specialty advice and support available on the app! You can also check out all their exercises. Plenty of information available for you to do wherever you are, whether you are at home or in the workplace to look after your back.
