9. Act like a cat and cow
One of the best moves for easing and preventing back pain comes from yoga—the Cat Cow. Rest on your hands and knees, keeping your back flat. Exhale as you curl your back upward and lower your head until you’re looking at your abdomen. Hold for a moment. Then, inhale as you lower your back slowly until it is arced as far as comfortable, raising your head so you’re looking up toward the ceiling. Repeat.
