My previous job, that I recently quit, left me sitting at a desk for 11 hours each day.
Workplace ergonomics are really important because – WOW, working at a computer for that long is really bad for your body. My back ached so bad that it often left me in tears.
The well-being of my body & mind are extremely important considering I’m only 26.
I rarely workout at the gym because I get bored with the repetitions & weights; however, I really enjoy fitness classes and other activities like kayaking, biking, walking, etc. My favorite physical activity is yoga – I love its blend of mind & body exercise.
My dear friend Dr. Matt Trimner has had several conversations with me about the importance of daily physical activity & its’ benefit to back pain. Matt is a licensed chiropractor and without his help I wouldn’t be finally starting to heal and understand my pain. Check out his website & Facebook; he’s always posting helpful videos & tips – a true lifesaver.
A study from UNC notes that over 80% of Americans will experience low back pain at some time in their lives. If you’ve experienced low back pain, you know that it can often be unbearable. At times I wondered if I’d be suffering in pain like this for the rest of my life, nothing seemed to be really working. 😞
Then, I met her – My lovely, lovely Yoga Wheel.
Honestly, one of the greatest products I’ve invested in- it’s pretty amazing. Not only does it help my yoga practice, but it’s aiding significantly with my back. I could go on & on about its’ benefits, but instead I’ll direct you here.
(*Note: She writes about spending >$100 on a wheel. Please, you don’t need to do this. I link below to a wheel I recommend for a fraction of the price.)

Hey! You don’t necessarily need to be a yogi to use a wheel either. If you have back pain, rolling around on a yoga wheel for 10 minutes feels like heaven while it massages your spine. I recommend this product because it works.
Not to mention, $15.99 is less than a Dr.’s appointment, pain medication, or back surgery (EEK!!!!) – give it a try.
Once you’ve got your yoga wheel in hand, check out Estelea’s post & practice rolling 🤗
