How Your Office Design Could be Bringing You Down
Your environment, no matter if it’s home or work, can set the tone for your workday, facilitating positive vibes, healthy practices and productivity or a nightmare of inefficient processes and illness.
Office design can play a major role in how you do your job and whether the job you do will serve to enrich your life or be a bane of it.
Brazen Careerist details three office design killers and how you can get rid of them:
Sharp edges: Resting your wrists against the sharp corner of your laptop, table or IKEA desk as you type compresses the delicate tissue of your forearms, which will eventually lead to pain. The tissue bounces back easily when you’re young, but over time, you’ll have to stop work for a few weeks or months to heal the damaged area.
Solution: To avoid being taken out of the game, look for a desk and keyboard with rounded edges. If you have to use a laptop, get an ergonomic keyboard to plug into it.
