Your Eyes Need Breaks Too

Let’s look at the BACK of our heads. Meet the suboccipital muscle group which connects your cranium to the first two vertebrae of your neck. When looking at a computer screen all day, we tend to squint, strain, crane our necks forward. The suboccipital muscles are directly connected to eye movement and have a load of receptors that tell our brains where our head is, in space. When we have poor posture, the suboccipital muscles become tight and can send tension up into the head and down to the lower back and pelvis. Give your eyes regular rest breaks. Your body will thank you.
