Office wellness is a crucial element of your overall health. The majority of Americans spend most of their day seated in an office. The hard workers of Shelby Township are no different. This can cause irreversible health problems if not properly managed. More and more businesses are improving their workstations with ergonomic office furniture.
Workplace stress seems hard to avoid, however, with small steps nobody has to endure a painful workday at the office. Because sitting for prolonged periods is so dangerous for our health, many researchers are urging companies to provide Standing Desks for their employees.
Time to BreakTaking just 5 minutes every hour to take a break and get your body in motion can greatly reduce stress and the negative effects of prolonged sitting. The second you sit down, your body basically goes into sleep mode. Your metabolism and circulation slow to a halt, the electrical circuits in your legs shut off, and your body’s ability to burn fat and calories grinds to a halt.
Office stretches are an easy way to work movement into your everyday. Set a timer to remind yourself to stretch every hour, and make it a priority to get up and walk whenever you get the chance. Some simple stretches include:
• Neck Stretch: Reach your left hand over your head and gently pull away from your right shoulder. Relax your shoulders and hold for 15 seconds. Repeat on other side.
• Shoulder Stretch: Interlock your fingers in front of your body. Turn your palms away from you. Gently push forward and straighten your elbow. Hold for 20 seconds.
• Back Stretch: Cross your left leg over your right leg while seated at your desk. Rest your right hand at your knee and your left hand higher on your thigh. Gently pull towards your left and look over your left shoulder. Hold for 15 seconds. Repeat on other side.
• Hamstring Stretch: Place one foot on a stable surface such as a chair. Keep your standing leg and back straight while leaning forward and pulling toward your foot. Hold for 15 seconds. Repeat on other side.
An ergonomic office workstation reduces unnecessary muscle strain by having all your tools within arm’s reach. Your monitor, keyboard, and mouse all at a comfortable distance with no extra strain on your body could be the key to your pain-free workday. Relax The Back Shelby Township could have the ergonomic office products you need to free yourself and from pain and reinvigorating your day at the office.
