Kind of had a rough day today. I found out early this morning that my youngest cousin was in a horrific dirt biking accident. He’s hopefully going to recover but it definitely rocked my emotional boat today. I’ve been super distracted and definitely sad. I know that every day can’t be perfect but man does it suck when bad shit like this happens!
I’ve also been cleaning a ton this week! I work for an eco friendly cleaning company which is amazing and I love my job! I work in the office but when duty calls I have to go out in the field and get my hands dirty!
One of the main tasks of any house cleaning is vacuuming. My company uses these really awesome backpack vacuums that are super efficient. After a few days of constantly wearing that 35 pounds on your back while moving and bending and squatting your lower back gets pretty tight! I have been using my acupressure mat to the fullest extent this week!
What is an acupressure mat you ask? It is a foam mat that has little plastic needle points that hit close to 8,000 acupressure points! It can take some getting used to but the benefits are amazing! Acupressure mats have been shown to increase circulation, increase energy, relieve chronic neck and back pain, improve sleep and insomnia to name a few!
I use my acupressure mat in conjunction with soft music through my headphones to have a peaceful meditative experience. I will lay on it for at least 15 minutes per day and I always feel AMAZING when I’m through! I have been using it consistently now for a few months and I can say that it helps to relieve my lower back pain, especially after a hard day of cleaning! It also helps me feel relaxed and re centered and it definitely helps me sleep!
I urge you to try one out for yourself! This is the one I have Here. I love ProSource products because they are pretty equivalent to the more expensive name brand products but for half the price! I have a ton of ProSource stuff and they have all been great! Also, if you have Prime, you can start acupressurizing (that’s totally a word right?!) in 2 days! It’s worth it, believe me!
