Ah, Valentines Day. If you’re in a relationship, it can be the most romantic of days — and the most stressful too. What to get the partner that won’t disappoint? If you’re a singleton, it can either be a time to feel down about life or to celebrate your independence and treat yo’self.
Whether you’re a big Valentines Day fan or it causes you untold amounts of stress, this romantic day shouldn’t be a stress on your body. Today we’re looking at a few great ways to have a totally ergonomic Valentines Day.
1. Stand Up For Dinner
There’s nothing quite like a romantic, candlelit dinner. You’ll hold hands over the table, nibble on delicacies, and profess your love to each other…all while standing up. That’s right: standing desks don’t just have big health benefits in the office; they’re great for dining, too. You’ll stay in the power posture, which is sure to be attractive to your fellow diner. And hey, you’ll burn calories as your muscles work to keep you upright — so why not go for that bigger slice of cake?
2. Profess Your Love Using an Ergonomic Keyboard
Words will win their way straight to your desired’s heart. But that doesn’t mean you have to suffer on a flat keyboard in order to type them. Instead, use an ergonomic keyboard. The split design will move your hands into a natural position, keeping you out of pain. This will leave more of your mind free to profess your love and impress your mate.
“Did you type this on an ergonomic keyboard?” she’ll say with a wink. “I can tell.”
A night of romance for all.
3. Frantically Click on Last Minute Plans
What’s that? You forgot it was Valentine’s Day?Never fear, your beloved needn’t be any the wiser. Just do a good Google search for romantic plans in your area. Reserve a fancy dinner, book a trip to the top of a national monument at sunrise, or re-create your very first date. You’ll arrange your plans with lightning speed and all of the comfort in the world when you do all of that clicking with an ergonomic mouse. Your wrists won’t strain or fatigue with that ample support, nor will your fingers strain as they reach for the buttons, which are all right within reach. This is especially important when those last minute deals are going fast. Don’t let a painful trackpad or standard mouse get in the way of your romantic night.
4. Cook a Special Dinner
Okay, we lied: words aren’t the only way to a person’s heart. Food can get you straight there too, especially if you make it yourself. While being an award winning chef is always desirable, even the gesture of home cooked mac n’ cheese can do the trick if it shows effort. If your meal is technically difficult and involved, you may be on your feet awhile. Make sure that you have an anti-fatigue mat in the kitchen to give your feet plenty of arch support. This will make you 95.9% less grumpy at the time of the actual dinner. It’s a proven fact!* (*Not actually a proven fact).
5. Play a Song
Do you two have a favorite song that you share? How about the song that was playing when you first met? Or are you a super talented person that’s composed a beautiful new ode just for the event? Whatever your choice of song, if you’re a musician with heart, it’s time to play your valentine something special.
Forget your music stand? No worries? Just place your sheet music on a laptop and tablet stand. Not only will you read with ease, but you won’t have to strain your neck in order to find your perfect note. This will again place you into a much more attractive position (nobody likes a huncher, right?) and it will keep you free from pain the whole night.
The time of painful Valentines Days are over! With our guide, you’re sure to be totally ergonomic and to experience little pain. Have a romantic — and comfortable — Valentines Day!
