Have you ever watched someone work on their computer, their eyes glued to the monitor, their face practically touching the screen and then wondered how in the world can their neck hold that head up in that position for hours? How about your coworker next to you that looks like a deflated balloon sitting in their chair through the entire workday? These can’t be comfortable or efficient postures for the body to maintain all day long. Over time, these positions could lead to some stiff and achy joints, tense muscles, and even pain.
At Body Evolution we believe the best posture is the next posture. In other words, changing positions throughout the work day will decrease the stress and strain on those body parts that work overtime.
Changing posture through the day reduces the buildup of stress in our body. This is a simple thing to do during the day, but can be difficult when your job requires you to be focused on the current task causing you to be in front of the computer screen for extended periods of time.
When you have a major project due and not enough time to take a break then it would be a good idea to make sure your workstation fits you comfortably. A comfortable work space can help reduce the stress and tension in your body. Imagine sleeping on a concrete floor for the next week and how your body might feel. Chances are you will be dreaming about that comfortable bed you’ve been sleeping on. It’s the same for your workstation. If your workstation is like that ‘concrete floor’ then you can imagine you will have more aches and pains during your workday.
We don’t want you working in that environment. We know that pain can replace passion for work and we want you to keep enjoying your career.
Below are some tips for improving your workstation setup so you can enjoy your workday without having to worry about those nagging aches and pains.
