Want to know how to make reading in bed more comfortable? Watch this video, or read the transcript below….
Hi! It’s Laura Coleman with Just Muscles, sitting here reading in bed. Sooo luxurious at the end of the day to pull open my favorite Ken Follett novel and read. Unfortunately, because most people get a lot of sitting and forward hunching stuff, then sitting and reading isn’t always comfortable for everybody, nor does it make your back feel good even though you are propped up by a bazillion pillows.
My secret weapon for you to try!
I take my favorite Trigger Point roller, and I slide it behind my back. This is the perfect size (13″) and I put it right in the middle of my back. I just slide it back there and lean against it, so actually I am sitting a little more upright and I am breaking loose some of those tight spots in my back that have sort of accumulated over the day. Really, this makes reading in bed far more comfortable, and not so ergonomically horrible because I’m not all curled up in a ball making my back tighter and madder.
That’s your quick fitness tip for today.
What do you think? Give it a whirl! The key is that particular foam roller. It is hollow on the inside and therefore very firm. Pure styrofoam rollers don’t work nearly as well as they tend to bend under pressure, but try it anyway. That is better than nothing!
Let me know in the comments below how you like yet another way to use your foam roller. They are indispensable!
