In the age of COVID-19, working at home is becoming a more and more prevalent situation. People working at the home office need to take a good look at their workstation and determine whether it is as healthy and comfortable as possible.
One’s home office furniture, particularly your computer desk and chair, are the most important factors in ensuring a healthy work environment. As a home office and telecommuting have for many become the default option, it wouldn’t make sense to spend your workday with makeshift computer desks and chairs.
The very first step is to choose the proper work desk for your needs. A standing desk, also known as a height-adjustable desk, is a recommended solution for any white-collar workers who otherwise would spend practically the entire workday sitting on a chair.
Convertible desks allow you to alternate between sitting and standing. Modern home office desks are easily adjustable, which means that you can change your working position as many times per day as you wish.
This is of the utmost importance, since it enables you to avoid incorrect working postures and the aches and pains that often follow, and decrease the amount of time you spend sitting. The latter lessens the risk of cardiovascular diseases and diabetes. Sitting for extended periods of time – as many do for the entirety of their workday – is simply put, quite bad for your health.
In addition, the modern height-adjustable desks are also conveniently sized, allowing you to easily move them around your apartment from room to room. This comes in handy if you have small children and they play in different parts of the house or apartment at different times of the day.
Besides office furniture, there are a lot of different aspects to consider. People need to think about second monitors, mice, keyboards, and other computer accessories they want to introduce to their homes. Is your internet connection truly high-speed? What to do about power cord management? How are you handling paper clutter? Do you get enough natural light to your workstation?
All of these questions can be addressed separately after you have secured health-friendly, multi-functional furniture for your home office.
