Many companies invest in health and safety practices to protect their employees. Ergonomically safe office setups are very standard. But what happens when you work from home? There isn’t a Human Resources representative around to check that your desk and office set up is ergonomically sound. It’s up to you to make the changes that will protect your body.
The easiest route would be to recreate your office set up at home, but that’s not feasible for everyone. Instead, focus on these five principles to create an at-home ergonomic set up with what you have on hand.
If you are just starting out working remotely from home, the change may not be noticeable on your body at first. Your doctor of chiropractic is an excellent resource for adjustments to keep your body healthy. They can also recommend exercises to do throughout the day to strengthen your body and improve your posture. If you work hard to maintain good posture and use ergonomic supports while you work from home, you’ll feel as productive as you do at the office.
