Kieran Bell from Mouat West Physiotherapy paid fSpace a visit to talk about how to maintain a good posture while sitting at a desk all day.
Kieran explained that good posture increases concentration, reduce fatigue, aches and pains and significantly lowers the risk of long-term muscle and skeletal problems.
Not only did we learn more about how our body works, but more importantly how stretching and keep moving is key to a healthy day at the office.
These are some of the key tips & tricks we all know so well but are so easy to forget:
- Stretch your muscles
- Keep moving
- Set up your workstation properly
Regular basic stretching or simply taking a few minutes each hour to walk around will make a big difference, not only to your general aches and pains but to your concentration too.
So the next time we get a coffee, let’s stretch our shoulders in the doorframe or stretch those tight calf muscles. J
Keep moving rather than staring at a screen like a statue. Try moving around while you use the phone, maybe even walking up and down the stairs.
Take some time to get your monitor lifted, buy that wireless mouse and try our standing desks now and then to mix it up.
