Improving posture improves a variety of physical and mental functions you might expect. From reducing the frequency of headaches to increasing core strength to projecting a greater sense of confidence, changing our posture can change our lives, our work productivity, and our positive perception of our Houston community. It may be easier to slouch, but with an ergonomic workstation it can be just as easy to sit and stand up straight.
The Benefits of an Ergonomic Office
Studies show that Americans are spending more and more time at their desks—up to 95% of their workday by some estimates. But all that extra time is ineffective and inefficient if workers are sluggish and distracted by ailments brought on or compounded by all that sitting. The best course of action to take is to walk and stretch during frequent breaks, but an ergonomic workstation can also help alleviate this problem while at your desk. By eliminating the painful distractions of joint pain and poor circulation, ergonomic office produces can make way for a relaxed, focused, and productive workday.
An ergonomic workstation makes your office a place that encourages comfort and focus. The spine may be the focus of most ergonomic concerns, but your entire body can feel the negative effects of poor back health. Common ailments include frequent headaches, eye fatigue, poor circulation, numb legs, and tingling hands. Work is hard enough as it is, your desk shouldn’t be making it harder. An ergonomic office makes your workday healthier and happier.
The Right Ergonomic Workstation for YouErgonomics is not a one-size-fits-all enterprise. There are many ways to build the perfect, precise workstation for you and your body.
• Standing Desk - The simplest solution to reduce your sitting time at the office is to stand. A standing desk promotes increased circulation and greater focus, and it relieves stress on your back and legs. Standing desks can even result in greater core strength. A standing desk provides greater freedom of flexibility.
• Ergonomic Office Chair - Standing all day comes with its own set of maladies, including pooling in the lower legs and static muscle fatigue. Consider alternating between standing and sitting in an office chair that provides lumbar support. A true ergonomic office chair should have a slight forward tilt to provide support even as you lean forward to work.
• Monitor Arms, Footrests and Laptop Risers - Don’t forget about your hands, feet and eyes when designing your space. These devices place your extremities in optimal working positions, reducing aches and swelling in the hands and feet. They also place your monitor or laptop at the right height and distance to reduce strain on your eyes and neck.
