Houston - Kirby / Office
When your body doesn’t feel at its best, your mood is almost guaranteed to diminish as a result. Everyone knows it can be hard to stay positive while in physical pain and discomfort. Physical discomfort caused by poor working posture can lead to low morale and decreased productivity in the office. Luckily, providing an ergonomic office can help employees feel good while being more productive. Houston’s Kirby neighborhood provides many ways to stay active and healthy, but it takes more than regular exercise. Breaking up long periods of sitting is the single-most effect way to deter the negative effects of sitting. An ergonomic office can help insert movement into your workday while improving your posture, comfort, and overall well-being.
The Side Effects of Poor ErgonomicsSitting all day can lead to minor discomforts, as well as larger-scale health concerns. If the body is not properly supported, maintaining a sedentary position for extended periods of time can lead to aches and pains in the legs, back, and neck. Studies have proven that if the sedentary lifestyle continues for months or years, one can expect significant health problems such as cardiovascular disease and obesity to develop.
What you might not see in these previously-mentioned studies is how these health issues can detract from office morale and diminish once-positive attitudes of even the most productive workers. On the other hand, when physical well-being comes first, office workers are more likely to feel happy, motivated, and be more willing to contribute work of their highest caliber to the company.
Your Ergonomic Office Checklist• Stand-up desks provide opportunities for movement throughout the day. Switching between a sitting and standing position exercises the muscles. Alternating positions also stimulates blood flow, releasing the feel-good endorphins that can lead to a more positive mental attitude.
• Ergonomic office chairs support the body in a neutral position, relieving stress and tension on muscles and joints. This liberates workers from the unnecessary mood detractors caused by physical discomfort.
• Adjustable monitor arms bring the monitor to a more comfortable angle for the worker. When work is kept at eye level, tension is relieved in the neck and shoulders.
• Reduce the risk of carpal tunnel syndrome with ergonomic keyboard trays. These trays adjust to promote the proper angle in the wrist, making it easier to spend extended periods of time typing on a computer.
• Proper lighting completes the ergonomic office workspace. Clean, natural lighting pleasant ambiance in your place of business as well, even further contributing to a generally more positive work environment.
