6 Tips For Ergonomic Gift Wrapping That Will Prevent Injury.

With Christmas just 2 weeks away, let’s talk gift wrapping ergonomics!

Tis the Season for back and neck pain that is associated with wrapping presents in a way that causes damage to your spine.

Here are 6 tips to help you wrap presents in a way that won’t strain your spine and cause pain.
………..

1. Avoid sitting on the floor

Use a table top counter that is at waist level, or the dining room table with a comfortable, supportive chair. This ensures you are using your arms, rather than your back.
……….

2. Wear comfortable and supportive shoes

It’s important that you don’t wrap presents standing barefoot and if possible stand on a memory foam mat.
……….

3. Create a gift wrapping station

Clear off the table and keep wrapping paper, scissors, tape, ribbons, and any other materials you may need at arm’s length.
…………

4. Wrap in shorter sessions

Don’t wait until the last minute and then wrap 25 presents at once. Wrap several presents at a time and then go back to it later or another day.
……….

5. Use gift bags

Skip the strain of wrapping all together and buy cute and festive gift bags to use instead.
……..

6. Don’t forget to stretch

Loosen up your muscles and joints before you start wrapping and then take stretch breaks during. This will help minimalize pain.
……..

It’s important to incorporate good ergonomics when you’re wrapping gifts. Your body is already under enough stress during this busy time of year.

Happy wrapping!
