It’s 2021: the world has changed in so many ways, as have our ways of thinking and functioning. Amazing how quickly we adapt, isn’t it? Still, as we feel our way through our second year of (don’t say it, don’t say it) unprecedented change, the isolating and social distancing has resulted in millions of us still working from home.
Gym accessibility has also been affected, leaving many of us deprived of our training sessions at EVO.
We’re social creatures who need to move. So remote working can be a struggle for our physical and mental health.
One drawback of working from home has been transforming our home into an office and for some, even a classroom (shoutout to the homeschooling parents). Our workspace can have a significant impact on our body, leading to niggly backaches and pains.
By making some simple changes to your workspace with positioning, posture, and exercise, you can avoid being part of the isolation nation stagnation and prevent back pain when working from home.
Choosing the right seating and desk is the first step to bossing your own office. If you haven’t got your own ergonomic office chair and desk, then improvisation is key.
