Whether you work in office or offsite at home, “posture” when working is causing problems.
We spend most of our day hunched over a desk and staring at a screen– this is definitely impacting the health of our employees which affects productivity and happiness of individuals. It takes a toll with flexibility, injury risk, and movement through to your circulation, mood levels and metabolism.
If you are working from home or office on an unsuitable chair you must change this immediately, it will be well worth the investment!!!
We suggest the following to assist your workstation:
– alternate between sitting down and standing up
– keep your feet flat on the floor
– do not cross your legs
– ensure your ankles are in front of your knees
– keep a small gap between the back of your knees and the front of your seat
– your knees should be at or below the level of your hips
– relax your shoulders and keep your forearms parallel to the ground.\
– try and stand up every 30 – 60 minutes, make sure you leave your chair
– do a lap around the office OR your dining room table
