Wilmington / Office
After hours of staring at a computer in a seated position, the average human body is overstressed, tired, and in pain. It is not the body’s natural inclination to remain seated for so many hours at a time. In today’s day and age, however, 86% of Americans have jobs that require them to sit all day. With such beautiful walks available around downtown Wilmington and the Christina River, it’s difficult to stay seated for this long. But what most of us don’t realize is that sitting has lifelong, damaging effects on our bodies.
Building office workstations that are ergonomically comfortable is an integral component to creating a safe workplace for your employees. As more research around the dangers of sitting is released, more companies are considering the need for proper workstations in the office.
Taking initiativeTaking care of your health in the workplace is a complex task. Staying hydrated, sitting with proper posture, and taking time to stretch and move throughout the day can all help. At the center of workplace health is the back. It comes to your back health, there are ways you can gradually improve your posture, which will in turn affect positive change throughout your body. Here are some tips to help you stay active at work:
• Get up and move. Getting up to move every so often will greatly improve your workplace wellness. While sitting, your muscle activity and blood flow slows to a halt. Integrating movement in your workflow has the added benefit of increasing your energy and concentration.
• Desk exercises. There are many stretches you can do throughout the day from the comfort of your own desk. Try reaching your arms above your head and to either side of your body for a great abdominal stretch.
• Align your ears with your shoulders. One simple way to your posture in balance is to keep your ears in line with your shoulders. This keeps you from leaning too far forward or backward and is an easy tip to remember to keep your back straight.
Why Ergonomic Workstations?There are many elements to creating the perfect workstation for your ergonomic office. Flexibility is key to reducing the stresses of sitting for hours on end. Standing desks have been proven to increase circulation, muscle activity, and mental focus. With a standing desk, you can continue your work while getting in the standing time needed to reduce stress on the lumbar and fatigue during the day.
Implementing ergonomic components into your office will help alleviate the stress and pain that sitting puts on your body. Every little bit counts, and as the good habits and choices accumulate, so will the benefits to your health.
