As the world is challenged with interesting times, we are all finding ourselves working in different ways. No matter where you are working, it is important to apply ergonomic principles into your life. These principles, as well as tips to stay focused, will allow you to work more comfortably and effectively.
Whether you’re sitting in a desk at your office or at the kitchen table of your home, remember to raise or lower your seat so that your thighs are parallel to the floor and adjust your tension in your chair. Keep your monitor an arms length away or slightly below your eye level. (Humanscale.com) If you create a habit out of these practices, you will stay comfortable and work more effectively.
The space that you work in is just as important as the ergonomics that you practice. If you’re currently working from somewhere other than your office you might have to get creative! While maintaining good posture, try to sit somewhere where sunlight is available, give yourself plenty of room to work and make sure you have the office supplies that are necessary. Check out a few ways our employees are getting creative while practicing social distancing!
