When it comes to spending long days in the office, flexibility is key. If you're stuck in the same position for hours on end, you’ll experience cramps, back pain, and fatigue. Whether you’re a University of Oregon student or a young working professional of Eugene, you want to ensure that your daily routine doesn’t hurt your health. Fortunately for you, Relax The Back is here with a solution! Our ergonomic office chairs, desks, and more make it easy to upgrade your office workstation to one that will help you get the most out of your day. If you want to add comfort to your workday, there's only one thing to do: invest in an ergonomic office.
Pain Be GoneRecent studies have shown that the average American spends almost 56 hours a week sitting. If you fit in that category, you probably suffer from back pain and cramps as a result. The body isn't made to stay in a sitting position for that long. Prolonged sitting places pressure on the spine that restricts blood flow. This pressure and lowered blood flow then can cause debilitating aches and pains in other parts of your body, from the neck and shoulders all the way to your legs and feet. Ergonomic workstations nourish the spine, conforming gently to its shape and preventing undue stress to the vertebrae. With less aches and pain, you'll find yourself enjoying happier and more productive days almost immediately!
Our Favorite TipsOur product consultants are well-versed in the latest ergonomic office essentials and would love to help you find your perfect matches. Here are some of their favorite tips to help you experience a more productive and comfortable day:
• Stand Up to Stretch Every 30 Minutes – The human body doesn't perform very well when it's stuck in a chair for long durations, so standing up to stretch or walk helps to relieve tension and prevent muscle aches. Standing desks make it easy to avoid prolonged sitting by working from a standing position — you'll be amazed at how big of a difference it makes to your overall alertness and energy levels!
• Invest in a Great Chair – Sitting is unavoidable, but even shorter durations of sitting in an uncomfortable chair can cause lasting pain and make it harder to stay positive while you work. Ergonomic office chairs that promote healthy posture prevent many of the aches and pains associated with sitting while making for a more enjoyable and comfortable experience.
• Position Your Computer Monitor at Eye Level – This is especially important if you work from a laptop: looking up, down, or sideways to view your computer monitor often strains your neck and shoulder muscles. Instead, use an adjustable monitor arm to position your screen at an optimum height, or use a laptop stand to raise your laptop to an appropriate viewing level.
Easier Days with Ergonomic EssentialsWorking from an office can be an enjoyable experience, but it just takes one piece of poorly designed office furniture to ruin it. Even when it's too rainy to go outside and walk to your favorite lunch place, every opportunity you have to relieve bodily tension at work should be seized.
