Wrapping up Christmas this Week

There is no "ideal" position for wrapping gifts. The most important thing to remember is to vary your positions. For example, try standing at a table or countertop for one package then sitting in a comfortable chair for another. The position to avoid is wrapping packages while sitting on the floor because sitting on a hard floor can wreak havoc on your posture. This position will also cause you to bend a lot.

You typically should stretch and hold the bent position for extended periods of time. This puts a great deal of stress on the neck and low back. Bending forward with your legs stretched out in front of you or crossed restricts blood flow. Sitting on a hard surface (such as a floor) also reduces blood flow. Always stretch before and after you wrap gifts.  When wrapping presents, it's a good idea to 'stretch the opposites. In other words, if you are leaning forward when wrapping your gifts, stretch backward when you are done.

Best Wrapping Options:

Option 1: A table is always a good solution for wrapping presents.  Whether it is a desk, kitchen/dining table, or folding table, having a work surface at a height you can comfortably sit at is a plus. 

Option 2: Wrapping at counter top height while standing is also an excellent option.  Wrapping at a counter while standing will give you all the access you need without over stressing the body.  For extra space for your tools, pull out a drawer to your side and lay a cutting board or cookie sheet over it to hold your tools. 

Adding ribbon and other ornamentation can then be comfortably done at a table while sitting.
