Think about your neck.
I've been doing a lot of filming lately. I find myself craning and staring down at a screen. Then I also find that I do this when I'm on my phone. Turns out there's a whole phenomena called 'Tech Neck.' So I've decided to take things into my own hands before I'm too far gone. I recommend you do the same.
There's a lot of things you can do for your neck, and still accomplish the same task that was hurting your neck. Little things. Usually the answer her is 'Lift it up in front of your face.' Simple habits that go a long way.
You should do whatever you can because there is so much that your neck has done for you. Think about it. Thank your neck. It's the only tunnel into body city. You have to respect it. There is no room for error, accidents, and no reason for neglect. Even the slightest delay in taking action on your bad habit is inexcusable.
If you work in an environment that causes you to deny your neck good form - change it. Raise your computer screen. Switch to a standing desk. Do whatever it takes to work in a way that favors your neck.
Or quit your job. Find another one that is better for your neck.
The neck does a lot of things for you. So breathe into it, right now, stretch it out. You want to put a lot more miles on that baby. A guy named Tom Keenan bought his mom an iPad and found she couldn't use it because her neck was so uncomfortable. He started a company called Mükava. The product is an ergonomic foldy table. It works like a beautiful Pixar lamp, but its a table. It uses pure genius mixed with magic. Bottom line - It helps people refrain from poor neck habits.
Cater media like tablets, and literature to your comfort and health. Bring objects to your face rather than the other way around. Empower yourself and become the master of your own neck.
Tom realized that something had to change when his mother couldn’t use the iPad he had bought her. The device he bought from Amazon to assist her weren’t up to par. So now there’s a solution – because he wanted one.

The neck is the top of the spine so a lot of things that help the rest of the back and spine also improve neck health. The image attached will give you some great ideas but feel free to elaborate on them. As you know - IF YOU ARE MOVING IT - YOU ARE WORKING IT!
