The majority of the US population is currently working from home due to the pandemic. While this set-up has plenty of benefits – avoiding the commute, no need for dress-ups, greater flexibility, more time spent with family, some reported that after months of being away from the office due to lockdown, many find themselves having dreadful downside: back pain.
Without a proper desk, monitor, and adjustable chair, you’ll most probably find yourself hunching or slouching at your sofa, dining table, or even in bed when you’re at home. Improper workspace designation and poor ergonomics, combined with distractions and uncontrollable noises, can cause mental, emotional, and undoubtedly physical stress.
Fortunately, it’s never too late to optimize your work-from-home set-up. All we need is to re-envision “working from home” by creating a thoughtful plan, so you can achieve more free time, lessen overall stress, and enhance your well-being.
