Working at an office can be a great experience, especially if your office is in Raleigh. It makes it easy to collaborate with others and find inspiration when you reach a roadblock in your work. Unfortunately, working in an office also encourages sitting for hours on end. Finding a way to counteract the harmful effects of prolonged sitting can be difficult — hitting the gym before or after work is great, but this doesn't exactly reset your body or ready it for another long day of sitting. Recent studies have shown that the real secret to getting the most our of your day without the aches and pains associated with sitting is right in your own office—and all you have to do is upgrade your workstation to an ergonomic one.
Give Your Body What It NeedsAn ergonomic office supports your body and nourishes it. The key is neutral posture. When your spine is naturally aligned, blood flow increases. Proper circulation improves focus, alertness, and productivity. Proper ergonomic support nourishes your body and mind.
You eat everyday to give your body the nourishment it needs, so why wouldn't you give your body the chair and desk it needs to get through the day without pain and fatigue? Here are some popular ergonomic products that are designed with your body in mind:
• Standing Desks – Standing desks very well could be the single most important piece in a fully ergonomic office. As the name implies, standing desks allow you to change your working position from sitting to standing with ease. Incorporating standing into your work routine makes it easy to relieve pressure on your spine, helping the vertebrae to relax and allow the optimum flow of blood through your spine.
• Chairs with Lumbar Support – If you've ever sat in a chair and felt like you're sinking into it and can't sit up straight, you understand how important lumbar support is. Ergonomic chairs with built-in adjustable lumbar support promote great posture that will keep you energized and alert without any lower back pain.
• Adjustable Monitor Arms – Eyestrain is a serious concern in the workplace, and looking at a laptop screen or computer monitor resting on your desk is not helping. Adjustable monitor arms allow you to raise your computer screen to eye level, which allows you to sit up straight with great posture without the need to lean forward to view a screen placed lower than your eyes.
