Let’s be honest, while ergonomics might be in the back of your mind while you are working, it is most likely pushed way further back when you are on holidays! We are not long back from our own summer holiday with the kids. While we were away, in between the rollercoasters and ice-cream, I started thinking about all the little things I was doing to make things easier and reduce the risk of injury, something I value more as I get older! 

The summer holidays are a perfect time to escape the daily grind, relax, restore and explore. However, the journey and adventures can sometimes take a toll on your body, leading to discomfort or even pain. Manual handling, adverse postures, unsupported postures, fatigue, stress and prolonged periods of static sitting can come as part of the holiday package.

In this episode, I provide some tips to help prevent aches and pain, helping you enjoy a happy and healthy holiday!
