We’ve all rolled our eyes when someone warned us to “sit up straight,” but those nagging parents and teachers were onto something. Improving posture improves a variety of physical and mental functions that may seem unrelated. From reducing the frequency of headaches to increasing core strength to projecting a greater sense of confidence, changing our posture can change our lives. By freeing us from aches and pains to work faster and more efficiently, it can also change our work productivity. Sure it’s easier to slouch, but with an ergonomic office set-up from Relax The Back Louisville, it can be just as easy to sit, or stand up straight.
The Benefits of an Ergonomic OfficeAmericans are spending a lot of time sitting. On average, Americans sit 56 hours per week, often while at work. But all that time is ineffective and inefficient if workers are sluggish and distracted by ailments brought on or compounded by all that time sitting. An ergonomic workstation can help alleviate this problem by eliminating the painful distractions of joint pain and poor circulation to make way for a relaxed, focused and productive workday.
Our product consultants will help you design the perfect workstation to make your office a place you won’t dread. They have the tools and expertise to relieve the pressure and stress that a poorly conceived office set-up has wrought. While the spine is the center of ergonomic concerns, it is by no means the only body part affected. Common ailments include back pain, neck pain, frequent headaches, eyestrain, poor circulation, swelling and numbness of the legs, and tingling of the hands and fingers. Work is hard enough without these maladies breaking your concentration. Don’t let your fortune of living in Louisville be thwarted by an uncomfortable working experience. Adding more movement into your daily routine and your updating your workspace can make for a healthier, happier workday.
The Right Ergonomic Workstation for YouAn ergonomic office can help alleviate the damaging effects sitting has on your body. Because no two bodies are the same, there are numerous options available to build the perfect workstation for you and your body.
The simplest solution to reduce your sitting time at the office, the increasingly popular standing desk removes sitting from the equation altogether. Standing desks promote increased circulation and mental alertness while relieving stress on your back and legs. They even result in greater core strength. A standing desk provides greater freedom of movement and flexibility, allowing you to move throughout the day and improve circulation.
A standing desk can convert from a sitting desk to a standing desk at the touch of a button. When you do need to have a seat, consider an ergonomic office chair that provides lumbar support. Proper alignment in your chair is the difference between 8 hours of fatigue and misery and 8 hours of productive, engaged work. The ideal office chair positions your thighs parallel to the floor with a few inches between the edge of the seat and the back of your legs.
Don’t forget about your hands, feet, and eyes when designing your space. A rocking footrest will keep your feet elevated and in motion, reducing aches and swelling. Monitor arms and laptop raisers place your devices at the right height and distance to reduce strain on your eyes and neck. Your arms should bend at a 90-degree angle with your keyboard just above your lap. If you’re going to be stuck staring at a computer for 8 hours, the least you can do is make it a little more comfortable.
With the proper ergonomic workspace from Relax The Back Louisville, you can get through the workday and still have energy to live the life all those long hours have earned!
