Between The Struggle And Acceptance: It’s Okay To Not Be Everyone’s Cup of Tea
The concept of remote working is now becoming more of a norm than an exception all across the globe. If you are one of the people who have made the transition from an office to a home-based workspace, it is time to give your home office the myriad upgrades it so richly deserves. Let us check out a few productive and healthy things you can use to upgrade your home-based office:
In the initial days of the pandemic, many people used to work with kitchen chairs. The plain wooden ones that we usually use for our breakfast table. It may be all well and good for an hour or two every day, but as time goes by, you will notice certain aches and pains that were not there in your body before. This is entirely due to the chair and the havoc it is wreaking on your body. This is why the healthy and safe thing to do is to invest in an ergonomic chair.
Buy a desk that will easily support your posture and give lumbar support to your back. Not only will you become more productive, but you won’t feel any pain when you go to sleep after a long day’s work. If you continue to work on your kitchen table, you might end up getting a kink in your neck along with several other health-related problems.
You can consider a standing desk. Sitting for long periods of time can cause back pain, but standing instead has many benefits. You’ll burn more calories and have less opportunity to develop a bad posture.
Ordinary sunlight is arguably one of Mother Nature’s unique tools that will help you work better and also alleviate your mood, to a great extent. If you don’t have a large window to the outside world in your home, it is time to get one. After all, the more fresh air and light you are exposed to, the more productive you will become.
Sweater Weather: 6 Ways To Better Spend These Cold Winter Days
Just because you have access to natural light doesn’t mean you forgo artificial light altogether. If you find yourself straining to look at the keyboard, the screen, or any printed documents, it is time to invest in a powerful and focusable table lamp.
These nifty little devices are an absolute must for many workers, especially writers, software designers, and other people who have to work on their keyboards for extended periods of time. A wrist rest will help ensure that your wrists are in a comfortable position as you work. If for example, you are a content writer who writes 5,000 words daily, the sheer pressure on your wrists will mean hands that hurt all the time. Getting a wrist rest or support can eliminate this problem altogether.
Laptops, tablets, and other devices of similar nature are terrible when it comes to posture and body positivity. If you spend most of your waking hours hunched over a laptop, you will definitely need a laptop riser or a stand of a similar nature. Without such a riser, the screen of the laptop will be lower than your eye level and it will not only cause fatigue to your eyes but also create neck and back posture-related issues. A laptop riser can easily get rid of this problem. The best decision would be for you to get one before the issue even arises in the first place.
If you are spending too much time staring at the screen, you should get blue light-stopping glasses. Not only will they protect your eyes from excess strain, but also help you sleep better at night too.
This is one of the best ways of saving energy and taking care of your health. They will help maintain the temperature in the room according to pre-set settings that you have programmed already. In fact, digital thermostats can not only help save your fuel expenses but also take care of your daily body temperature too.
If you have been working in a home office for a long time, you should get a proper chair and other furniture. You should also consider getting a smart digital thermostat to handle the room’s temperature.
