Tucson - North / Office
Recent studies show that Americans spend close to 56 hours a week sitting. Sitting in one position for prolonged periods of time takes a toll on your spine. A sedentary lifestyle increases the long-term risks of cardiovascular disease and obesity while decreasing your productivity and alertness throughout the day. All those hours sitting down don’t have to be hours of suffering, and you shouldn’t have to suffer when you live in North Tucson. An ergonomic workstation and ergonomic office accessories can help you maximize comfort and performance during those long hours at the office.
Say Yes to ErgonomicsThe mental and emotional tolls of extended sitting are annoying enough without compounding them with the physical impact as well. An improperly constructed workspace can add some serious discomfort to your workday. From swollen, numb legs all the way up to the neck pains and headaches, sitting in a poor position affects your entire body. A neutral position facilitated by an ergonomically sound workstation, however, alleviates disc pressure and muscle pain while promoting healthy blood flow. Finding relief from such strains can help to improve other areas of work such as your level of alertness, energy, and focus. Ergonomic offices even report increases in productivity of up to 40%.
Building Your Ergonomic WorkstationA healthy ergonomic workstation is the sum of many parts. While it isn’t always easy to avoid improper ergonomic behavior, there are ways to help ease the pain.
After just one hour of sitting, the enzymes that break down fat drop 90 percent. The standing desk is the simplest solution to reduce your sitting time at the office. Standing desks, increasingly popular and common in the workplace, promote increased circulation and mental alertness and also relieve stress on your back and legs. Additionally, they’ve proven to decrease other health issues like obesity and heart disease. A standing desk provides greater freedom of movement and flexibility, allowing you to move throughout the day and improve circulation.
An ergonomic office chair can also save your body from fatigue and exhaustion. With lumbar support to promote a neutral spine, armrests to support your arms (90 degree angles or greater are preferred) Proper alignment in your chair is the difference between 8 hours (or more) of fatigue and misery and 8 hours of productive, engaged work.
Monitor arms and laptop raisers place your screens at the right height and distance to reduce strain on your eyes and neck. Laptop raisers allow for adjustments of up to 7” as well as greater port access and cooling, ensuring that neither you nor your laptop become agitated throughout the day.
Sit Up StraightThe right combination of these ergonomic office accessories and regular physical activity will put you on the path towards a healthier, happier workday. Staying active and aware during the workday, however, is just as important. Check your posture throughout the day, making sure your shoulders relax away from your ears and your chin draws away from your chest. Save your eyes with the 20/20/20 system. Every twenty minutes take a twenty-second break to stare at something at a distance of twenty feet. This, combined with a visit to Relax The Back in Tucson-North, can make your long days at the office more pleasant and far more productive.
