Inappropriate posture of hunchback leads to low back pain for sedentary people.

  2. Adhere to exercise and strengthen waist and back muscles;

  3. Understand and maintain the correct sitting position.

Don’t hold your urine, don’t hold your urine, don’t hold your urine.

Residence, overtime, coffee, lack of exercise, high pressure, fatigue and so on have almost become the labels of IT people. Coupled with irregular lifestyle, sleep problems are more likely to occur, resulting in many people [sleeping less] and [sleeping poorly].


  1. Develop regular sleep habits. For example, take a hot bath before going to bed every day, fully relax your body and mind, and sleep at a fixed time.

  2. To ensure sleep quality, there is no need to worry too much about sleep duration.

  3. Take the initiative to rest, such as taking a lunch break every day, and taking a nap when you are especially tired is also good.

Special reminder, please ensure that your bed is only a place to sleep, and do not eat, watch TV, work on the computer, etc.

Keeping the bedroom quiet and comfortable is also helpful for sleep.
