Did you ever wonder why you’re so exhausted after a day that only involved sitting at your desk? Your feet are numb, your eyes won’t focus, and those occasional headaches are becoming far too frequent. It’s impossible to concentrate on the task at hand with your body screaming at you to stretch or adjust or sit in any position than the one that’s causing so much pain. Consider turning your space into an ergonomic office. The switch can improve your productivity, align your body, and energize your workday to make those long hours bearable. After all, since Lubbock is known for being a hub in the national health care industry, it’s important that we take preventative measures to stay healthy and set a good example.
Working the Ergonomic WayA poorly conceived office setup inflicts a toll on more of your body than you might think. Sitting for hours puts a strain on your spine, which leads to pain in the back, neck, and shoulders. An ergonomically sound workstation promotes a neutral spine position, alleviating muscle pain and disc pressure while promoting healthy blood flow and deeper, more effective breathing. Implementing ergonomic solutions can eliminate these physical strains and let you focus on work. Companies that provide ergonomic workstations report a 40% increase in productivity.
Make an Ergonomic Office Setup Work for YouWhile it isn’t always easy to avoid improper ergonomic office behavior, there are a variety of ways to help ease the pain.
• The increasingly popular standing desk can help alleviate the damage of sitting simply by allowing you to stand up. Standing desks promote increased circulation and relieve stress on your back and legs while providing greater freedom of movement and flexibility, allowing you to move throughout the day and improve circulation.
• Consider sitting in an ergonomic office chair that provides lumbar support, as well as support for your arms. An ergonomic chair adjusts to fits and it’s an investment in a healthier back and spine for the rest of your life.
• Sitting all day would seem to take all the pressure off your legs and feet, but if they’re improperly positioned, the result can be poor circulation and lower back pain. Elevated footrests can relieve the pressure put on the back and improve blood flow.
