Joint & Neck Pains due to immobilising the body parts for long hours and the angle at which you see the system/PC causes the neck pain. Recently, since most of the people bow their heads to the phone for video streaming, this became common.

Tip: Stretching exercises or a simple walk in between the work.


The impact of this ailment is directly proportional to the years of experience or the amount of money crediting to your account. No Stress, No Money. I couldn't give any tip for this. May be Yoga/Meditation will help you stress free.

And also, long hours of sitting in Air Conditioned environments will cause the skin allergies.

Blood circulation due to tight jeans:

Let's think, if your body sweats and unable to dehydrate as quickly, the body accumulates the sweat and stick to your skin for long hours as the jeans are not allow to dehydrate quickly.

Putting Purse in Back:

I came to know about the putting purse in the back pocket, causes the back muscle displacement due to unbalance flat seat to sit. Even while Driving Keeping Wallet in Back Pocket can cause severe back pain or even slip disk.

Tip : As an old saying, the money(Goddess Laxmi) should always carry to the left of your heart like her husband, Lord Vishnu. And may be that is the reason, we have a pocket on the left side instead of right. And physically, it is easy to take the money out from the right hand if the pocket is on left side.
