How often do you work from home? Where do you work when you're at home? While many of us enjoy the ability to work from our own sofa, it can cause numerous issues later on. Creating the proper work environment centered around ergonomics is not only putting your health first but also your work first. By having the proper ergonomics, you'll find yourself more productive and efficient.
Don’t forget that you can still be mindful of how you treat your body when you work from home. Unfortunately, working from the comfort of your home often means a neglect of the ergonomics aspect. Your office desk is substituted by the kitchen table and the office chair is replaced by a kitchen stool or, in the worst case, the sofa. A portable computer is probably in most cases, your work tool. The combination of all of the above will tense your back and neck before you know it.
When working remotely it is good to think about which factors may cause strain on your physique and how that can be prevented simply by choosing the correct furnishing and work equipment.
