Make your own heating pad at home in two minutes!

I often strain my neck after staring at a computer for many hours.  A couple weeks ago I strained my neck really bad and couldn't go into work for a couple days.  Jason gave me the idea to make an at home heating pad.

Put the heating pad in the microwave for 2-3 minutes.  You will be surprised how long It will retain the heat.

Place under your neck and lay down.  Don't watch t.v., use your computer, or do anything that will strain your neck while using the heating pad.
