Lonesome Road










So, it’s been a while since I have put up a blog post! I’ve been suffering from ‘office syndrome’ and have been battling head-splitting headaches almost everyday! The syndrome is a result of sitting for a prolonged period without sufficient bodily movement, resulting in inflamed muscles and tendons which can spread and lead to what’s called ‘tension headaches’. The tension headaches have been extremely debilitating and have left me feeling strangely ‘hungover’ the next day. So getting up and getting out to work or shoot a look has been almost impossible! I’ve been recommended by my doctor to get frequent massages to help loosen up the tense muscles in my shoulders and it has helped a lot! My headache attacks have been less frequent and less severe.

However, in order to keep the symptoms at bay, I must make sure to take breaks from working on my laptop every 20 minutes so that my body gets a rest. How ironic that I have always been so very grateful for the fact that, as a fashion blogger/designer, I can work anywhere in the world as I am not an office worker. So, to end up having ‘office syndrome’ is just astounding to me! I’m now trying to set new ‘rules’ for myself to not overwork, and to actually spend my weekends not working! It’s been going well so far and I hope to keep it up! In a few days I will be heading out for a much needed beach holiday and I’m planning on resting my poor shoulder muscles there and perhaps getting a few heavenly beach massages!

  1. I’ve just started working in an office and hate the shooting pains across my shoulders and the aching back. Never thought I would end up in an office, bah! I feel for you
