Here’s to a fabulous year in 2021!

To make sure it’s a happy, healthy and successful year for you, your family and your community, there’s a few simple things you can do to get setup for success at your desk this year…

Having some great exercises, ergonomic tips, posture hacks and healthy screen / device habits up your sleeve will help you get 2021 off to a great start.

‘Success’ in terms of how you feel at your desk might mean

  • More energy throughout your day
  • Less stress or tension in your mind and body
  • Better productivity and workflow
  • More confidence and great posture
  • Healthier habits using your devices (phones, tablets etc)
  • Greater strength and endurance in your muscles
  • Less strain on your joints and muscles sitting at your desk
  • Achieving your health goals (have you set some for yourself yet?)

Whatever success looks like for you this year, taking a little time to organise your body and your desk- or wherever and whatever your typical workstation might be- will pay off in bucketloads!
