    Teleworkers Staying in Shape

    homefitnessintelWorking at home can be very tedious, time-consuming and can sometimes become hectic for teleworkers. It eats up all the free time that you have because you have to make sure you work well, at the same time manage the house you are living in. Working from home can put you out of shape. It can be difficult to get back up since you cannot just go out and run or drop by to a local gym to lift some weights. Good thing you have the option of having elliptical machines and treadmills so you can exercise right in the comforts of your home.

    It is known that a treadmill can burn more calories than an elliptical machine can, all because of its jarring fashion. So as you run on a treadmill, you should know that your joints experience forces that are about 3.5 times your weight contrary to when you are just walking. So just pace yourself and relax and do not push yourself too much. A good workout that is suggested by trainers is you should begin with a steady walk for about 2 minutes then pick it up to a jogging pace that you think you can keep on doing for the next 20 minutes, but you will only be jogging for 20 minutes at a time. After this two minutes, you should keep the same pace but kick the incline up a notch of about 1 percent every 30 seconds. Keep this up until you can no longer hold the same pace in line with the elevation, this is the time you drop the incline to 0 percent then jog for 2 minutes to cool down.

    On an elliptical machine, it is not intense as being on a treadmill. Because your body just mimics the running motion you do on a treadmill but without the impacting feeling on your joints because your body is not lifting your legs up and down. Start out by doing a 5 minute warm up with a resistance level of 5 and an incline of 3. After the first five minutes, decrease the incline to 1 but increase the machine’s resistance to 6. After that, increase the machine’s incline and resistance to 7 and hold it for 5 minutes straight. After another 5 minutes with that setting, increase your incline to 10 and the resistance to 8. Keep up this intensity until you have built up the incline to 15 but lowering the resistance to 7 for another 5 minutes. Finally, for the last intense push, kick up the incline to 20 and the resistance to 10 and push yourself for another 2 minutes. End the workout with a 3 minute cool down with an incline of 3 and resistance of 4.

    To save you from the inevitable boredom being a teleworker, exercise can always be the key. So try combining treadmill and elliptical workout. It is easy, just switch up machines in the middle of the exercise as you wish but make sure you complete both guides to maximizing the results. If followed accordingly, you will be back in shape in no time.

    Tips About Mattresses

    uponamattressThere is not one single perfect mattress out there in the market today. You will be getting different feedbacks and opinions from different types of people and sleepers. A person can say that they are getting back aches, and some will say it relieves pain. Others will say cotton mattresses are the best, and some will say coils will give you pain, and air beds are the most comfortable. Even the firmness of the mattress causes debate if it’s better for lower back pain.

    Obviously the reason behind all this drama and debate over the best mattress is because, quality and comfort of a certain mattress is totally subjective. As a matter of fact, when you are buying a mattress the most important, if not only, consideration you have to make is a completely personal comfort. It also counts that if anything other than a mattress makes you more comfortable during sleep, then you should go for it.

    If you are shopping for a new mattress here are some things that you need to know so you can maximize comfort and get that good night’s sleep you have been craving.

    Before buying, remember that you might have to replace that mattress around after eight years. If you wish to keep your mattress after that, you might see some degradation of materials and can make the mattress very uncomfortable to sleep on. If you see yourself waking up in pain, having a lack of sleep, feeling disgruntled then that is the time you should be replacing your mattress.

    You should replace the box spring as well, along with the mattress itself. Over long periods of time, the compression that is being sustained by the spring made by bodies and the mattress on top of it will eventually change the shape of the structure of the box spring. For continuous comfort on your bed, make sure you replace the box spring after 8 to 9 years.

    Make sure comfort is a top priority. Getting a mattress is all about finding what you think is comfortable for your body. Some people might prefer a firm mattress, some lean towards soft ones, and other would prefer the ones in the middle ground. You can ask any expert and they will tell you that it is all about personal preference. If you feel comfortable, then it will ultimately lead towards you having that good night’s sleep.

    Do not be shy, try the mattress first before you buy it. Do a test sleep on the product first by lying down in a sleep position for about 20 to 30 minutes before you make that decision.

    Make sure your mattress fits your body. If you speak with a chiropractor, they will tell you to get a mattress that will conform with your spine’s natural curve so your back will have even pressure all over while you are sleeping. Memory foams are known to do this. This can be tricky since no mattress will show curves on its surface. The best way to do this is that you should have someone with you when you are buying and have them observe your back while you are lying down and ask if it is fairly neutral.
