Aventura / Office
If you live in Aventura, you may be inclined to live adventurously. With beautiful weather and the excitement of Miami nearby, there are many ways to live an active life. If your job has you sitting for most of the day, however, you may be living a more sedentary life than you even realize. The average American sits for 8 hours a day. Sitting for long periods of time puts unneeded pressure on your spine and reduces circulation throughout your body. This not only makes you uncomfortable, it also reduces productivity and increases your likelihood of developing serious medical problems like heart disease and obesity. Taking breaks and staying active throughout the day is key in counteracting the negative effects of sitting, but working in an ergonomic office can help you stay comfortable and healthy too.
The Importance of PostureOne of the most important goals of any ergonomically friendly workspace is to maintain neutral posture while sitting. When in neutral posture your back is able to rest and recover, because your vertebral bodies are properly aligned. Disc pressure, muscle pain, and ligament strain are alleviated when you are resting in neutral position. The improved circulation allows for spinal nourishment and oxygenation of the blood.
A proper workstation can encourage better posture, but it can also help you stay active. Another important facet of ergonomic health is varying movement throughout the day. Keep reading to learn about how you can avoid staying locked in the same, uncomfortable position from 9 to 5.
The Best for Your BackErgonomic chairs that conform to the natural curve of your spine can help you maintain neutral posture. Sitting in these chairs incorrectly, however, can still do damage. Your chair height should be positioned so that your feet touch the ground and your hips are slightly higher than your knees. There should just be an inch or two between the back of your legs and the front of the chair. Be sure to take short breaks from sitting too. Posture follows the hands, so using arm rests and keyboard trays that keep your arms and hands at 90 degrees will help posture and reduce risk of carpal tunnel.
A standing desk can help you get on your feet without breaking your work rhythm. Changing between sitting and standing at your desk relieves stress on your spine and keeps you focused and alert. Standing even promotes core strength. The greater flexibility provided by a standing desk fills your day with additional movement. Simply standing up can lead to a pain-free and productive day at the office.
Come to Aventura Relax The Back right off of Biscayne Boulevard. There you’ll find a full line of standing desks and other ergonomic office accessories. A pain-free back and healthier lifestyle is just a visit away.
