Give Your Fingers a Break from the Holiday Shopping Aches
With all the time we haven’t spent in malls this year, we’ve definitely made up for it online. Online shopping is surging as brick & mortar stores have become a limited option. This year, the Cyber Monday, Christmas Shopping, and End of the Year Flash Sales are more attractive than ever. Doing all of your shopping from the couch may still leave you hurting from your neck, wrists, all the way to your fingers and toes. If you’re feeling weak from your shopping spree, put aside the keyboard and grab either a Body Comfort hot or cold pack and tend to your aches.
Emotional stress over what is happening both in and outside of the home is surely the cause for any unexplained muscle soreness. Myalgia (muscle pain) and myositis (muscle inflammation) are common issues that everyone faces at some point. Heat and cold therapy can play a significant role in healing these common ailments.
Heat therapy is recommended to get your blood flowing if you're feeling stiff. A hot bath or a Body Comfort Click Activated Instant Heat Pack will help loosen up tight muscles and joints. Taking a hot shower in the morning is an especially effective way to start your day without that stiff, just rolled out of bed feeling.
Break out the Body Comfort cold pack from your refrigerator when you’re feeling sore from overuse. If you’ve been using a specific part of your body more than usual, you may get a tinge of pain in that area. This is caused by irritation or inflammation. Targeted cold therapy will slow down the blood flow in the area, thus reducing any pain. A Body Comfort cold pack is exactly what your wrists will need after checking off Santa’s list with a day of online shopping.
