Ergonomics In The Office

Office Ergonomics

Ergonomics In The OfficeYou need to take stock of your chair and what it might be doing to you and your back. If you are slouching or leaning over your computer, you are putting pressure on your spine, which could lead to severe back pain now or down the road. You need to use chairs that have full ergonomic support. Get a chair that can be adjusted to prevent you from slouching and sitting in strange ways. It may take some getting used to, but it will make a big difference for your back and your productivity.

Stretching Breaks

Part of working in an office is long hours at a computer and desk. But that doesn’t mean you can’t get up and move around every now and then. Set an alarm on your phone and challenge yourself to get up and move around every hour. Walk down the hall to refill your water or simply stretch your arms and legs a bit. Even though you have a better chair now, you can still get stiff and sore if you don’t allow your muscles a little blood flow from time to time. Stretching breaks can help improve the ergonomics in your office.

Nutrition Awareness

Believe it or not, nutrition has a lot to do with the ergonomics in your office. If you want health and wellness in your office, it starts with nutrition. When you have to sit at a desk for a long period of time, you are bound to snack on whatever is handy. Keep healthy snacks nearby instead and snack on those so you can improve your health and take part in better ergonomics at the same time.
