“From finding the right space and furniture to organizing ideas, ergonomics, personal style, dealing with distractions and more, let’s tackle that home office once and for all.”
Check your ergonomics. Pay attention to how you feel after logging a few hours at your desk at home. If you have any pain or soreness, it’s time to check the ergonomics of your setup.
• Your chair height should be adjusted so that your feet can be flat on the ground.
• Align your screen with your sight line to avoid eye strain and shoulder stiffness. If you have a laptop, consider putting it on a stand to adjust the height.
• Check the lumbar support of your chair. Add a pillow or get a new chair if you have been experiencing lower back pain.
• Invest in a few cushy pads to keep your wrists elevated as you type and use the mouse, especially if you spend a lot of time at the computer.”
