If you have suddenly found yourself working from home due to the coronavirus lockdown, it’s important to get your desk set up correctly. A correctly set up desk will allow you to avoid unnecessary aches and pains and work from home as safely as possible. In this blog we will go through how to set up your work area. Whether that is at a desk or on a sofa or bed. I demonstrate stretches to help relieve aches and pains in your upper back or neck. Most of the ideas I am talking through are best demonstrated through video so this is a watching rather than reading blog.
In this next video I discuss how to create your work space and I demonstrate how to work as well as you can if you do not have the space or equipment you would ideally like to have.
If you already have a workstation at home or have space to have one then let’s make sure it’s set up well. Just watch the video and see how your set up compares.
You may not have space to have a dedicated desk space to work from and are working from the sofa or bed. This next video shows how to get the best set up you can.
Whether you are working from a desk or a sofa it is important to keep your muscles and joints moving. Regular breaks can help this as can regular stretching. These exercises are designed for healthy adults. If you are unsure whether you should try them then contact your G.P, Chiropractor or other healthcare practitioner.
I hope that the advice in these videos helps you to have a better posture and less aches and pains when working from home. Have you come up with any tips to help you work from home? I’d love to hear them. Just pop them in the comments below.
