When your body is in a static sitting position for hours, blood flow is reduced and you start feeling fatigued and lethargic. Without taking breaks these feelings can develop into cramps, soreness, and painful discomfort. Ergonomic office options allow the body to move throughout the day. Products like standing desks and rocking footrests can help keep you from feeling stuck in your chair. Even the smallest movements can make a huge difference in how well your body handles a day in the office. Stretching or walking around Santa Barbara on a break can greatly improve your workday. You'll be amazed at how much better you feel once you start moving.
Creating the Perfect Work EnvironmentIt can be disheartening to spend a beautiful, sunny Southern California day in the office instead of going for a stroll on the pier or tasting wine in the Santa Ynez Valley. When your office is ergonomically friendly, however, you can at least be productive and comfortable. Ergonomic workstations are designed with your needs in mind, creating a comfortable environment in which to produce your best work.
Tips For Designing an Ideal Work EnvironmentWhen it comes to designing an innovative and comfortable work environment, choosing the right ergonomic products is of the utmost importance. Here are some office ergonomic essentials to consider:
• Standing Desks – Standing up to stretch feels good because it allows your spine to relax after being compressed or cramped by your chair. Sit to Stand Desks allow you to work from a standing or sitting position. This can drastically reduce the amount of time you spend sitting every day.
• Multi-Function Ergonomic Office Chairs – Rather than forcing your body to conform, well-designed ergonomic chairs conform to the natural shape of your spine. This minimizes the amount of damaging pressure placed on your back, which makes ergonomic chairs a smart investment in your long-term health.
• Adjustable Monitor Arms – If you angle your head downwards to look at your computer screen, you're straining the muscles in the back of your neck. Using an adjustable monitor arm or laptop stand to raise your screen to eye level eliminates neck and shoulder strain, and allows you to better focus on you.
