With more and more of us currently working from home it is important to make sure that you have yourself set up correctly to ensure that you don’t cause damage and pain to your back, neck and shoulders. One of the most common causes of back and neck pain is sitting too long at a desk or sitting on the wrong type of chair. An Office Furniture Gloucester company will be able to help ensure that you choose the right furniture to work safely from home.
You need to think about the chair that you are sitting in and make sure that this supports both your lower back and your shoulder area. Sitting on a dining room chair is not going to support your back in the right way.
Your desk needs to also be suitable for you to work from and you want one that is of sturdy construction with plenty of room for you to get your legs under. You should also make sure that your feet are flat on the floor whilst you are sitting at your desk.
Moving around at least every hour is paramount to stopping those niggling pains and muscle discomfort from setting in. A simple walk to make a drink or a quick stretch will help to keep your muscles from stiffening.
