Combat Workplace Fatigue With Healthy Operating Strategies

Fighting Fatigue At Work
When you're tired at work, productivity levels tend to drop quickly. Lucky for you, there are ways to effectively fight back. Today we'll highlight the tips, tricks, and strategies needed to keep you ergonomically correct and refreshed. From sitting properly to taking short breaks, we've got you covered.

Fatigue is ready, willing, and able to strike at a moments notice. That's why it's absolutely essential to form the sitting habits needed to ensure you're ready to adjust efficiently to combat this office enemy.

Ergonomic Office Chair HabitsOffice comfort starts with good posture habits. Have you taken the time to analyze your sit from the ground up? It only takes a minute! Don't worry, we'll help you out. First things first, you've gotta check your feet placement.

If you're using the base of your office chair as a foot rest, blood flow is restricted and fatigue will have a direct path into your work day. The solution is to keep your feet flat on the ground and facing forward. It's simple, easy, and effective.

When computing at your desk, are you leaning forward and away from your ergonomic office chair to type? If so, you're missing out on the key support need to strategically fight fatigue. Keeping your back in contact with the chair at all times is a must. This might require adjusting the angle at which you sit by using the levers located underneath your chair on the mechanism.

Ergonomic Workstation for Healthy ComputingAre you looking downward at your computer screen when operating at your personal workstation throughout the day? This puts a lot of strain on the neck and upper back. Thankfully, there's a quick and free strategy that can get you over this common hurdle.

You'll want to raise your monitors up to eye level. This can be done with a shoe box or stack of books. If you do want to invest in your ergonomic capabilities, an adjustable computer screen mounting system is the professional solution. We recommend those from reputable brands like ESI Ergonomic Solutions, Symmetry Office, and Mayline. They attach in minutes and provide exceptional versatility.

Workers often think that by doing less, fatigue will be easier to fight. This is not an effective strategy. That's why, industry leading ergonomic brands have introduced adjustable sit to stand desks and surface attachments. They promote continuous movement in the workplace.

Sit To Stand Desktop Attachment
As sitting for long periods of time can actually shorten your life span, it's smart to employ a sit to stand strategy that can be effectively used throughout your work day. Once every hour, you need to stand up to stretch out those muscles. Doing so will make you feel refreshed as it gets the blood pumping. With a sit to stand station, you'll be able to just that without productivity levels dropping. Those considering the purchase of a sit to stand desktop riser like the 5100 model from OFM or the VariDesk should definitely go for it. When used properly, you'll wonder how you ever lived without it. They definitely make a noticeable difference.

In truth, you still need to take short breaks throughout the day. It's a smart strategy that is often considered an impossibility, but should't be. Make it your mission to get outside at least once for some fresh air. Take a walk. Grab a water to stay hydrated. Spend a little time away from your workstation to keep fatigue at bay.

Ergonomics 101: The Posture Tip Breakdown

Understanding Ergonomic Posture TipsRemembering a ton of posture tips during task filled work days can be tough, especially if you don't fully understand and value their importance. That's where we come in. Today on Ergonomics 101 we'll outline and explain the top office posture tips and their individual benefits to help you maximize comfort in the workplace. Enjoy!

1.) Master Your Office Chair

First things first, you've got to master your office chair. If you don't take the time to understand your chair and its features, you'll likely be taking a "set it and forget it" approach to office comfort. Once you've memorized your chair's ergonomic attributes, you'll be ready, willing, and able to adjust at a moments notice to maintain perfect posture.

2.) Keep Back In Contact With Chair At All Times

Each time you lean away from your office chair, your back is paying the price. That's why keeping your back in contact with the chair at all times is so important. If you find yourself hunching forward and over the keyboard tray when typing, the only real support your getting is from the chair seat. This is one bad habit you've got to break. Adjust the back angle of your personal computer chair throughout the day to maintain constant contact at all times.

3.) Maintain Proper Feet Placement

Do you find yourself perching on the base of your chair when computing at your office desk throughout the work day? It's time to make a change. When you use the base of your chair as a foot rest, blood flow is significantly restricted. Over the long haul you'll be fighting fatigue and even cramping by maintaining this incorrect operating position. Alternatively, strive to keep your feet placed flat on the ground and facing forward for stability and good blood flow.

4.) Raise Computer Screens To Eye Level

Looking down at your computer screens to type is a big time no-no. It causes a lot of physical strain on the neck and spine in addition to visual fatigue. Thankfully, there's a quick fix! Raise your computer screens up to eye level with a stack of magazines, books, or even an shoebox. When funds permit, invest in a dual screen monitor mount that attaches to the desk to provide you with even more adjustment capabilities. Screen mounts were once thought of as luxury items, they're now the industry standard. As an added bonus, they'll also help you recapture a ton of usable desk space.

5.) Sit At The Correct Height

All too often workers find themselves working at the incorrect height. If you work in an environment with shared chairs, the first thing you should do is reach for the pneumatic height adjustment lever when you sit down. It should be located on the right side of your chair underneath the seat. Any basic ergonomic office chair manufactured after 1990 should come standard with this basic feature. Raise or lower your chair to where your thighs are resting flat across the chair and perpendicular to the ground. Doing so will ensure good blood flow while reducing the strain associated with extended sitting sessions.

6.) Keep Chair Arms At The Correct Angle

The arms of your office chair should be raised or lowered to the point where your forearms can rest flat without you have to hunch up or down to reach the pads. If your chair doesn't have adjustable arms, you should definitely consider upgrading. These days, fixed arm chairs are typically only relied upon in conference room environments where sit time is greatly reduced. Without the correct forearm and wrist positioning achieved from a task chair with adjustable arms you'll be more subject to common office epidemics like Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.

7.) Take Short Breaks

Even the best posture habits will break down if you sit for too long at a time. That's why healthcare professionals and top ergonomists suggest taking a 5 minute break about once every hour. Stand up from even the most high end ergonomic office chair to stretch and hydrate. Extended sits cause muscles to stiffen up. When this happens fatigue and pain become major productivity killers. If you can't find the time to break away from your workstation once every hour, consider investing in an adjustable height desktop riser that will allow you to work from both seated and standing positions.

Popular Office ChairOur favorite feature is definitely the built in guide for personal adjusting. It's essentially a little card located underneath the seat that highlights the chair features and how to use them properly.
