Santa Monica / Office
Working and living in beautiful Santa Monica may provide many opportunities for relaxation and recreation, but our busy digital age still presents unforeseen challenges for our bodies and minds. Some of the biggest health issues facing the average office worker can be linked to too much time chained to our chairs. Our bodies were designed for varying types of movement, but instead we serve it heaping doses of sedentary behavior on a daily basis. Even the busiest of bodies that find time for early morning surfing or yoga are still susceptible to the negative effects of excessive sitting.
Prolonged sitting causes metabolic activity to plummet, circulation to stop flowing, and pressure to build up in the spine. This leads to a chain reaction of problems that links prolonged sitting to everything from obesity to chronic pain to potentially fatal conditions like diabetes and cancer. Take your lunch outdoors to a sunny corner spot or to the Santa Monica Pier to help combat the effects of excessive sedentary living. For your workday, consider ergonomic office advancements to upgrade your office to a healthy haven of productivity.
Why an Ergonomic Office?Office injuries are avoidable injuries. The root cause of pain is often poorly designed office elements that force you to contort your body into unnatural positions or hold static postures for extended periods. As a result, you wear out easily from discomfort and a slowed metabolism, lowering your quality of life and causing your work to suffer. Ergonomic investments are smart business decisions because they reduce health-related costs while reviving productivity.
Ergonomic office design streamlines the way you interact with your environment to help you work efficiently and without pain. The trained product consultants can troubleshoot issues to help design a workstation that takes the fuss and strain out of your job.
Ergonomic Office Essentials
• Invest in ergonomic office must-haves such as a Standing Desk to help you work on your feet. Studies show that adjustable stand up desks improve mood and alertness, allowing you to make better strategic decisions. Standing also thwarts the negative effects of prolonged sitting by reinvigorating circulation and metabolism and by taking pressure off of your spine. •
• Foster better comfort and spine health with an ergonomic office chair. Invest in a chair that offers lumbar support to keep your vertebrae aligned and your back pain-free. •
• Cramped hands? Try an ergonomic keyboard tray. Your typing angle and placement is key to relaxed fingers and wrists. The intricate and fragile structures of the hand can become easily inflamed or damaged with progressive overuse, leading to compressed nerves and strained muscles. Keyboard trays relax wrist position while also encouraging you to save your spine by fully sitting back in your chair. •
• Give your legs a mini-workout with ergonomic rocking footrests. Often an overlooked addition to workstations, footrests are simple devices that offer multiple benefits for the user. Not only does the rocking motion reinvigorate circulation in the legs, but the elevation gently moves your spine into proper alignment, making it more difficult to slump and slouch.
