Is it just me?
When I paint I often get horrendous muscle tension headaches from the position of my arm and shoulder (Neck, head, back.........).
I sit at an easel with an adjustable height chair.
Does anyone else have this issue? I am trying to improve my posture (and keep my shoulder down), but when I get carried away with concentration I notice (too late!) that I have slipped back into a bad position again.
Does anyone else experience this, or is it just me?
For those of you who sit, could you share your tips for how you make sure that you don't put strain on your muscles?
Oh I should add that I am prone to this type of thing - I often get headaches when I do something that taxes my neck and shoulders (sometimes from gardening or dancing (ballet), pilates, or sleeping..... *sigh*)
