You know that an ergonomic workspace is good for your body, but did you know that it could help you achieve your goals both at work and at home? Yep, it’s true. lFrom carpal tunnel syndrome to pinched nerves, back and neck problems, typing all day puts undue stress on your body. Even for the most stoic worker, bodily pain takes you off your game, draining your motivation and distracting you from thinking up the best ideas. That puts a big damper on advancing at work or even taking the kinds of risks that will help you achieve your biggest goals.
What to do? We’ve talked a lot at Goldtouch about the benefits of taking a break and moving around every 45 minutes or so, especially during those longer days. Correct posture is also key, as is a chair with lumbar and arm support to help your muscles stay in the right position. Along those lines, ergonomic products like a split keyboard or ergonomic mouse will help guide your wrists, hands and joints into the most ideal positions, so you’re not working for hours in stressful positions.
Behind all of these ideas is one key concept: to achieve your goals, you need to be able to concentrate and mull ideas over at a very deep level. That can only happen if you’ve got your body in line, and your muscles and joints are free of pain.
