Use the right paint brush.

Having the right tools and equipment truly helps a lot in getting things done, safely and easily.  Same thing goes with ceiling painting. A roller brush with long handle might be required to do the task. Make sure that you have it available before doing the job. Also, it’s best to buy an extra brush just in case the one you are using breaks down.

Take breaks and relax your shoulders from time to time.

Keep your shoulder relaxed at all times while painting the ceiling. Make sure that you take breaks from time to time as well. When you feel like your shoulder is going sore or tight, take a minute of break to release the tension. Get off the ladder and do some neck rolls, stretch your arms and shoulders.

Ask for help.

Ask few friend s of yours to help you out. Some may decline but some will surely say yes to help you with the painting job. Just make sure to repay them with something after the task is done. A fancy dinner or few shots at the bar will always do. Having someone around can also greatly help if accident occurs.
