Bridgeport / Office
Office wellness is an often-overlooked aspect of the workplace environment. With 86% of Americans spending often over 8 hours a day sitting at their offices, the workstation is in fact one of the more important assets to a company’s productivity and success. Sitting that long, however, has been linked to serious health concerns. Obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease have all been linked to a sedentary lifestyle. Incorporating movement into your office workspaces can help keep workers healthy and productive. This is something that offices in Tigard should consider when evaluating employee health.
Staying Active throughout the DayStaying active is a key component to reversing the negative effects of prolonged sitting. Studies show that even incorporating a 30-minute work out into your daily routine will not reduce the dangers of hours of uninterrupted sitting. Finding time to stand and move throughout the day is the most effective way to reduce the stress that sitting puts on your body. These simple activities can contribute to a healthy lifestyle in addition to an ergonomic office:
• Take the stairs: Whenever you can, choose to take the stairs instead of the elevator.
• Take the long way: Whenever getting up to use the bathroom or fill up on coffee, take a lap around the office or to your favorite coffee shop. Park further away from the building, so you get a little extra walking time before work.
• Have a healthy lunch: Eating healthy and bringing your own homemade lunch is a big stress reducer. The cleaner your body feels, the better it operates. Bringing your own lunch, as opposed to going out, may also give you a little extra time to incorporate physical activity during your lunch hour.
A Proper WorkstationAn ergonomic workstation is like a cockpit—all the tools you need are within arms reach. Your monitor will rest at the center of your line of sight and no more than an arms length away for easy viewing and to avoid strain on the neck. Your keyboard and mouse will be an arms length away, with your wrists resting comfortably on the keys. Holding your mouse should cause no strain on your hand, and allow your arm to remain in a neutral position.
Given the option to stand, many office workers say they would perform better and feel better. Adjustable standing desks are a great way to incorporate varied movement throughout the day and decrease the risk of back pain.
The early onset of aches and pains associated with prolonged sitting can create lifelong conditions that will affect every aspect of your life. It is up to us to find ways to circumvent these problems before it’s too late. To find out more about how you can turn your office into an ergonomic office, visit Relax The Back in Tigard.
