I am suffering, so you don’t have to!

That’s an interesting Title I found for this blog. I thought first writing for my team and then thought I would do it for wider audience. Apart from drawing a little more salary than an average job holder, Software job bring along a lot of life style issues. Of course I am in class obese when they calculated my BMI  with the joint pains and stress related issues. Moving from modelling (whoa..whoa.. don’t assume much. I meant I was slim enough to be the part of Fashion shows in earlier organization) to obese was little more than unacceptable reality for me. I met doctor since I decided cycling and broke my ligament. That was just a beginning. Starting from high blood pressure, chance of getting high sugar level, I am now under medication for many diseases including the knee cap. There are few things doctor suggested to me to do and I am here to share that with you.

Note:  This note is not for fitness freaks  and neither am I including general comments of brisk walking or jogging.

Sitting Posture:

  • Sit straight preferably in a non revolving chair
  • I know the earlier one is not practical, but in a revolving chair you can lock the upright position.
  • Set the height of the chair so that your legs are parallel to the rotating fixture
