With many out-of-office messages set to “indefinite,” it’s important we try to keep our in-office routine. Practicing positive (and professional) habits will help us maintain our productivity while ensuring our wellness extends beyond the benefits of quarantine into everyday ergonomics and more. So how do we do it? Here are our top 4 tips for making the most of your daily telecommute.
Tip #1: Make it official, Your office – because your office-away-from home should have the same kind of comfort, there’s also value in bringing some of the office into your home. Creating a dedicated workstation helps productivity by limiting distractions and maximizing focus.
Tip #2: Keep it moving
When you’re in the office, you rarely spend the entire day in a
single spot. So do the same at home. Move from focused work areas to
places that provide quick bursts of inspiration or a change of scenery. It is very important to stay active during the day.
Tip #3: Love your lumbar, “Work from home” shouldn’t mean “work from couch” – because most couches aren’t designed to support an active working posture. All of the chairs offered by OEXUP are ergonomically sound. Some are focused toward movement and active seating, making your time at work more comfortable and healthy.
Tip #4: Protect your neck,
Laptops, tablets and smart phones – oh my. More often than not, these
portable devices have us looking down all day, which can result in
“tech neck.” Proper workstations and supportive seating will provide a platform for you to work comfortably at home. We are focused on ergo-friendly
products and functionality such as monitor arms, height-adjustable desks, supportive or active seating and fixed height desks with monitor stands to offer relief from the problems that arise from improper posture or positions of hands, neck and head.
