Staying healthy at work can be difficult at times. From workstation setup, to flexibility in the office, to relieving stress, there are many factors that can determine health and happiness at the office.
Whether you are using a sitting desk or a standing desk, staying in one position for extended periods of time can be detrimental to your overall health and productivity. Workers suffering from ergonomic-related injuries typically need more time off of the job to recover than other workplace illnesses or injuries. Poor ergonomics is costly to both the employee and the employer. Good posture and proper ergonomics can help reduce injuries and increase energy and productivity levels.
Making time to move around and stretch throughout the day is also important. By taking adequate breaks, you allow yourself to de-stress and release tension as well as collect your thoughts and ideas for current or future projects.
