Northbrook / Office
In today’s digital age, there are more and more jobs that require sitting in front of a computer for long periods of time. Though people are busier than ever at their jobs, their bodies remain largely inactive for the vast majority of the day. Even though we live in the beautiful Northbrook and near the Chicago River, we still spend hours per day sitting. While sitting may be a necessity of your job, the act of sitting may actually impede on your ability to do the best possible work. Improper posture reduces circulation and puts painful pressure on the spine. Restricted blood flow and constant discomfort lowers your alertness and productivity. An ergonomic office could be the answer to the problem of sitting while simplifying your office. Having proper ergonomics in your office can actually help you stay clear and focused. Ergonomic office furniture can create a peaceful, collected, focused workspace, maximizing your business’s efficiency and output.
