Menlo Park / Office
Office wellness, while one of the crucial problems of our time, is one of the more undermined aspects of office dynamics. While our bodies were not made for prolonged sitting, 86% of Americans have jobs that require they stay seated the majority of the time. Whether you are a student or an office manager, chances are you spend a good amount of your time sitting upright in an uncomfortable position. What you may not realize is that over time, this can degenerate your body, leading to an increase in heart disease and circulatory problems. When you live in an area as outdoor-friendly as Menlo Park, working this way every day is a complete shame. Ergonomic office products can offer solutions to existing problems and prevent future problems caused by excess hours of sitting.
The Art of SittingIf you are going to spend the majority of your time sitting, it is important that you take the necessary steps to circumvent potential lifelong health problems that can arise. Knowing what your body needs in these settings can help you empower yourself to make those changes. Knowledge is everything.
• The height of your desk should rest right above your knees and allow you to extend your arms comfortably with your wrists straight and relaxed to reach your keyboard. Your arms should never be bent less than 90-degrees.
• An ergonomic office chair can greatly improve your lumbar support and add necessary flexibility to your workday. These chairs are designed to promote natural muscle movement and improve spinal support. It is most natural for our bodies to be exerting a minimal amount of core strength to enhance circulation and maintain proper posture.
• If your desk is too high you may need to increase the height of your chair and use a footrest. Rocking footrests are commonly used to keep that variability of motion and can also assist in proper knee-hip alignment.
Don’t Just SitWhether you are studying or spending all day at a 9-to-5, it is important not only that you invest in the right workstation, but also that you make time for movement. While these workstations can help you achieve the basic flexibility you need to keep your back healthy, it is also necessary to make time to get up and walk around. More and more, people are taking to standing desks to avoid staying seated for hours at a time. Studies show that standing workstations can improve your focus and circulation while working. These adjustable desks allow for versatility throughout the day.
Finding the right ergonomic office setup for you can be an overwhelming, but it is a crucial step to avoiding such health risks. Your Menlo Park Relax The Back location offers a friendly staff and the assistance you need to set yourself up for a lifetime of success.
