Workspace Well-Being: Creating a Healthier Place to Work

Is your workplace a pain in your neck? Don’t worry, we won’t tell your boss—but we CAN help! Medical experts and researchers have long been reporting that sitting or standing for extended periods of time can be extremely detrimental to our health, even being linked to obesity, heart disease and depression. But when work consists of being in front of a computer for multiple hours a day, finding ways to be “healthier” at work typically makes us think about the food we’re eating, not the very space we’re creating and innovating.

So, how can you start focusing on your health during your workday? It doesn’t require massive undertakings like designing a corporate wellness program or bringing in trainers for your employees to work with. In fact, it can be as simple as starting with the furniture you keep in your workspace and maximizing the time you have.

ACCESSORIES

When you sit in front of a computer, straining your eyes can lead to headaches and a host of other pains.
