Nothing puts a damper on enjoying a beautiful, sunny day in South Miami like having to spend it indoors at your desk. It only gets worse if your workstation makes you feel cramped, uncomfortable, and uninspired. Office dwellers in our sunny city should enjoy more comfortable and productive days while they are at work. You can't spend every day relaxing on the sand in South Beach, but you can come close with an ergonomic office workstation!
The Benefits of Ergonomics Are PlentifulBesides making you feel more comfortable, studies on occupational ergonomics have shown that working from an ergonomic workstation benefits the body in many ways you may not expect. Prolonged sitting is the well-known bane of every office dweller, but studies show that it can also be a serious health risk. After just one hour of sitting, production of the enzymes that break down fat drop 90%. Breaking up prolonged sitting sessions by taking short walks or using a standing desk are great ways to keep your metabolism running throughout the day.
Keep MovingOne of the keys to designing a successful workstation is incorporating movement into every element. When you're encouraged to move throughout the day, you increase circulation throughout your body. This keeps you alert and pain-free! Here are some ways to stay active in the office:
Use a Sit to Stand Desk – Standing desks that allow you to alternate between sitting and standing encourage you to stand up throughout the day. You can stretch out without missing a beat. You'll be amazed at the energy boost you experience after using a standing desk—not to mention the relief from sitting-related aches and cramps.
Use a Keyboard Tray – It may seem natural to put your keyboard right on the top of your desk, but this likely causes your arms to rest on the edge of your desk while you type. Besides constricting blood flow in and out of your hands, this actually strains your neck and shoulders. Ideal keyboard placement is usually a few inches lower than your desk. Keyboard trays that attach to the underside of your desk allow you to type with ease.
Keep Your Feet Happy with a Rocking Footrest – Rather than stretching your feet out to touch the ground, rest your feet on a rocking footrest. This promotes movement, keeps the blood flowing, and prevents foot cramps.
Get a Chair with "Forward Tilt" – This means that even when you lean forward, the chair moves with you to continue supporting you in the most optimum fashion. Ergonomic office chairs that allow you to move freely while you work minimize the amount of pressure on your body and help keep you moving throughout the day.
