If you have to move, doing housework, open the windows wider. Muscles contracting under the load require a lot of oxygen, and the problems of its lack turn out to be short of breath for us when the body, trying to get life-giving oxygen, makes breathing faster, and for the child with the same deficit, because mother’s expenses will be covered by his reserves.
The second condition for well-being in motion is to do vsedelenno and calm. Then the muscles will have time to “get enough” of the incoming oxygen, you will not be bothered by shortness of breath, and you will feel comfortable with the baby.
To safely deal with this problem, you will need a footrest or ladder. If we stretch high up with one hand while lifting up on our toes, our spine will bend too much to the side, from which the muscles holding it may suffer.
In general, doing household chores, try to use both hands, because a one-sided load causes a weakness on the non-working side and a too strong working tone. And over time, this position changes the posture.
If you need to move a small object from place to place, keep it close to the stomach so that the center of gravity of the body does not move even more forward. This position usually leads to overstretching of the lower back muscles.
When lifting an object from the floor, do not bend over it, bend your knees. And be sure to keep your back level.
Take an object with straight hands and rise upwards, straightening your knees. These movements will help you to avoid losing your waist.
Once in this position, do not forget to spread your legs wide to reasonably distribute body weight. This will allow you to feel where your center of gravity is, help hold it and relieve your lower back from unnecessary stress.
And holding the handle of the vacuum cleaner, put one foot slightly forward – from this position a slight tilt will be safe for the spine. For the same reasons, do not rush to bend down with a rag or a scoop if you spill something on the floor.
First kneel, put the buttocks on the heels and only after that, leaning forward slightly, sweep or wipe the floor.
Adjust it to your body every 15–20 minutes to relax your muscles. Lie down and make yourself comfortable – then the blood will move freely from the legs to the heart. If you began to disturb discomfort in the lower back, immediately stretch the tired muscles.
To do this, get down on all fours, that is, on your knees and hands, and bend your back like a cat.
