How To Use Electronics All Day Without Destroying Your Body (video)

Crippling our posture to use tiny devices for extended periods of time drops calorie burn dramatically, leads to painful joint problems, and shortens life expectancy.

 

We caught up with Kelly Starrett, Crossfit’s popular mobility expert and physical therapist to America’s elite fighting forces, to find out how we can spend endless hours with electronics without the associated problems.

Why You Hate Work | ProfessionalDevelopment PerfectionnementProfessionnel | Scoop.it

Employees are vastly more satisfied and productive, it turns out, when four of their core needs are met: physical, through opportunities to regularly renew and recharge at work; emotional, by feeling valued and appreciated for their contributions; mental, when they have the opportunity to focus in an absorbed way on their most important tasks and define when and where they get their work done; and spiritual, by doing more of what they do best and enjoy most, and by feeling connected to a higher purpose at work.
