Tips to help you feel comfortable in your at-home office space

Tips to help you feel comfortable in your at-home office space

As we all get used to our new normal, we know many are finding working from home difficult — especially those without a dedicated, ergonomic office space to carry out your day.

While this, on its own, can be a pain, it’s also likely causing literal pains in your back, neck, and eyes. We would like to provide a few #workfromhome tips to help you feel comfortable in your at-home office space.

  • Sit back in your chair with your feet flat on the ground in front of you. We know it’s tempting to work from your comfortable couch — but your back won’t like it after a while. If your feet don’t reach the floor when you’re sitting back in your chair, grab a small stool or a few books and place them under your feet as support.
  • Put your computer screen at a comfortable viewing height. Don’t look down at your screen. If possible, make sure your screen or monitor is set up perpendicular to a window. This will help reduce glare from the light and minimize eye strain.
  • Standing desks are great to use, but use them in moderation. Why? Standing puts more stress and strain on our circulatory system (as well as the feet and legs) than sitting does. The best option is to alternate between sitting and standing. Every 20 to 30 minutes, stretch and move around for a minute or two to promote circulation and relax muscles.
  • Ditch the mouse pad with the squishy wrist rest. Having anything under your wrist can actually add compression on the nerves in your wrist. Also, make sure your forearms and hands level and straight.
