Winter is the time for good food and outdoor fun in the snow with friends and family. All that won’t do you any good if you can barely move because of neck fatigue or a stiff neck. What’s worse is the freezing temperature can make neck fatigue even more agonizing that it already is.
What can you do?
Well, here are three simple things you can do to relieve neck fatigue and stiff neck.
1. Lateral Neck Stretch
This is an effective exercise for tired neck muscles. Start by relaxing your shoulders. Now gradually stretch your neck laterally to the right. Do it slowly and try to really feel the stretch. Maintain this position for about 30 seconds. Do the same for the other side. To make the exercise more effective you can assist the stretch with your hand. Repeat this exercise five times.
2. 45 Degree Stretch
Start with the same relaxed position and tilt your head 45 degrees while slowly rotating your head to the right. Maintain this stretch for about 30 seconds. This exercise is effective for those times when you’re having a hard difficulty turning your head. Do five sets.
3. Keep Your Neck Warm
A scarf is one of the best ways to keep your neck warm and relieve stiff neck. This is particularly useful when you’re outdoors in the dead of winter. That stiff neck could be the first sign of a cold or a flu so it’s in your best interest to protect your neck from the biting cold.
