Beaverton / Office
Long hours and large workloads can take a toll on your body. You may think that the aches and pains you experience at your desk are just part of the job. Your discomfort, however, may be caused by prolonged periods of sitting. Sitting causes backaches, neck pains, numb legs, even fatigue and lack of focus. Though these inconveniences may seem minor or inconsequential, they can develop into serious health issues including heart disease and diabetes. Even if you lead an active life in Beaverton or the larger Portland-area, the hours you spend at work can still do serious damage. Implementing ergonomic office products in your workspace can help combat the negative effects of a sedentary lifestyle. It’s time to positively change your workday and your wellness throughout the week.
Stay Productive in an Ergonomic OfficeWorking at an ergonomic workstation can improve organizational productivity in offices by 40%. An ergonomic and comfortable office lets your spine rest in neutral posture. This position reduces disc pressure and muscle pain while improving circulation. Without aches and pains you are free to work with higher levels of alertness, energy, and focus.
While an ergonomic office can help avoid pain and discomfort, the best way to avoid damages caused by sitting is to take breaks. Damage can occur after just one hour of sitting. Electrical activity in leg muscles shuts off, and the body can only burn one calorie every minute. After extended hours of sitting, metabolism slows down affecting the levels of good cholesterol in your body. These health issues can negatively impact the body and have been linked to Type 2 diabetes and heart disease. Standing up and walking around for a few minutes every hour can help reverse some of the damage done.
Ergonomics Keep You at Your BestThe key to a productive and pain-free day is movement. On average, Americans sit 56 hours a week. You can break out of the sitting cycle by working at a standing desk. A sit to stand desk can serve as a traditional desk when you sit, but can raise up to 52” to let you work comfortably while standing. The motorized desk transitions quickly and quietly so you don’t have to sacrifice productivity or comfort. Standing desks have been shown to increase core strength, alertness, and circulation—so you can feel your best while doing your best work.
