Improving Ergonomics




Ergonomics can be defined as the study of how people work in their station or environment. Effectively utilizing ergonomics means to make a workstation fit the worker, not the opposite. There’s real science behind this that when applied, provides many benefits.


Benefits of Improving Ergonomics

  • Increase of productivity, quality of performance, and overall personal engagement

  • Creates a happier and healthier work environment

  • Reduces stress, both physically and mentally



As an entrepreneur or owner of a small business, if you don’t already work completely from home, you probably do so very often. This has only increased since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. Working from home will likely continue when life goes back to normal for many fields and businesses where possible, or there will at least be an option. Knowing all this, it’s especially important to have a set workplace that is both functional and comfortable for you.

 

Ways You Can Improve Ergonomics


Wear Blue Light Blocking Glasses

  • When you’re constantly looking at the blue light screens emit, it strains your eyes. This can cause long-term damage to your eyes as well as many other negative effects such as: headache / migraine, eye pain / fatigue, having a hard time falling asleep due to decreased melatonin production, etc.
