Everyone has made that dreaded sound after trying to get up from a chair – that exhausted groan that somehow is the only lifeforce pushing our bodies up and out of whatever we are sitting on. Our bodies aren’t the same and that has a lot to do with the fact that we are working from home and neglecting the maintenance that is required. There are a few products that you should definitely consider integrating into your daily routine if you want to live a pain-free life.


1. RumbleRoller ($55)

This foam roller is unlike anything you’ve ever used before. A traditional foam roller relies mostly on your bodyweight and applies pressure to the spots on your body that you’re trying to loosen up. The RumbleRoller is the first deep tissue foam roller that applies precision pressure to each and every part of the affected area and addresses the source of your body pain, which provides longer lasting results.


2. Thera Cane ($30)

The Thera Cane is another deep tissue massage product that will help you get to those hard-to-reach spots on your body with pinpointed pressure that relieves pain in the smallest of areas. Lightweight and versatile, you’ll find yourself reaching for this even when you feel the slightest body discomfort.


3. Accupressure Mat and Pillow ($26)

Accupressure is a traditional Chinese practice that applies pressure to a person’s acupoints, clearing out energy blockages that could cause pain or discomfort in the body. I’m not going to lie, this is not the most pleasant experience, but once your body starts to settle into the sharp accupressure spikes, you feel a huge sensation of relief and you leave the accupressure session feeling as light as a cloud.


Again, if you’re trying to live a more pain-free life moving forward, investing time into body maintenance is key. We aren’t as naturally nimble and flexible as we used to be, but there are ways we can try our best to get back to those days.
