Working at home presents many new challenges, and they certainly have a whole heap of pros and cons attached. One aspect that is definitely different: you are the one responsible for your working environment. While the cost of getting good quality ergonomic furniture might seem prohibitive, you will benefit massively from it in the long term and reap the health and productivity benefits that come with your new standing computer desk or ergonomic chair.
We already know that proper ergonomics can help you to increase your productivity. If you have the tools you need to focus on your work and finish your tasks quickly, you’ll have more time to relax at home. If you’re bringing work home from the office, then you’ll definitely want to maximize your productivity, so that you can spend more time with your family.
Benefits of Working Ergonomically at home
Using ergonomic furniture for the home, such as a height adjustable standing desk or an ergonomic chair, can help with this. While sitting, the ErgoChair 2 makes sure you are comfortable and have proper alignment, while the SmartDesk 2 allows you to turn your home office into any space necessary for the projects you are completing.
It’s a well-known fact that proper ergonomics can help you to increase your productivity, so there’s every reason to have the right tools at home to help you do your job to the best of your ability.
Applying proper ergonomics at home will also help you maintain good posture and stay healthy. If you are using ergonomic furniture at work, but not at home, you could be undoing all of the good work you’ve done throughout the day and potentially be opening your body up to all sorts of injuries. Although these injuries are more likely to happen on the job, working a few hours at home, without proper ergonomics, can greatly increase that possibility.
By owning ergonomic furniture, you’ll also be more likely to actually complete the work you bring home. Proper ergonomics is proven to make people happier, as well as decrease fatigue. We suggest switching it up a little bit; for example, if you use a standing desk or an adjustable sitting-to-standing desk at work, try out the ErgoChair 2 at home. This gives you the opportunity to relax a little bit more but still helps with your posture, keeps your spine well-aligned and your back pain-free.
If you don’t use ergonomic furniture at work at all, then you’ll definitely want to consider getting it for your home office. The sooner you start using ergonomic office furniture, the sooner you’ll start correcting your posture and make back and neck pain a thing of the past.
Standing Desks and Ergonomic Chairs for the Perfect Home Office
To take the SmartDesk 2 for example, this easy height-adjustable standing desk can switch between use as a sitting desk or a standing desk. This makes the SmartDesk 2 versatile for any needs you will have while working from home and having the option of sitting or standing whenever you like gives you the best of both worlds.
One of the best things about having a well-designed ergonomic workspace is the comfort, so there’s every reason to bring ergonomically focused furniture into your home office too. You’ll have better circulation throughout your body by using a stand-up desk like the SmartDesk 2, and you’ll be able to feel the strength of adjustable lumbar support with the ErgoChair 2. All of these options are there to make work a more comfortable and pleasant experience.
