Is your desk setup sabotaging your health?
If you’re feeling stiff and sore, tight and tense and continually lacking energy at your desk…
Listen to Episode 8 of ‘Be Fit 2 Sit’ Podcast, as Physio Kym Siddons shares insights into some aspects of your desk setup that might be stopping you feeling great while you work.
How your workstation is setup, including furniture and accessories, along with how you position yourself and move within that work environment to fulfil your work tasks, is what the term ‘Ergonomics’ is referring to.
An ‘Ergonomically friendly’ work environment is supposed to help you feel good physically, as well as encouraging great productivity and efficiency as you work.
It also helps you be far more productive and minimise the risk of work-related illness and injury…
So that work is a really positive part of your daily life!
If your desk setup isn’t quite right for your body, the tasks you do or the workflow you prefer it can be very frustrating- mentally and emotionally as well as physically.
So this episode helps you identify areas that you can easily address to feel and function your best at your desk!
Key factors of poor ergonomics that can negatively impact your health at your desk are
– not facilitating movement
– not setup for efficient movement
– repetitive (particularly static) load on your body (and mind)
– repetitive movements in poor positions
– Lacking adequate or appropriate support
Physio Kym talks through these aspects and give you some things to look out for and improve on!
