Whether you’re at the office or working from home at your desk for almost 8 hours, 5 days a week, it's important to consider the ergonomics of your work space. Ergonomics focuses on increasing efficiency and productivity, while simultaneously reducing discomfort in the working environment. 


Ergonomics is not just about the type of furniture you have, or the posture you’re maintaining. It also takes into the account the need for movement throughout the day. To avoid sedentary workplace behavior, having a balance between sitting and standing is effective. For example, take breaks and have a small stroll to be active.

How to Have a More Ergonomic Workspace? 

  • A comfortable chair that supports your spine

    • If you spend hours at your desk each day, it’s worth investing in a great office chair that has that lumbar support.

    • If you don’t want to invest in a new office chair at this time, a lumbar-support pillow and a seat cushion can transform even the most basic non-padded chair into something you can sit on comfortably for a few hours.

  • A desk set at the proper height for using your keyboard

    • A height-adjustable desk can help you position your keyboard and monitor at the most comfortable height, whether you’re sitting or standing.

  • An external, ergonomic keyboard

    • Most keyboards aren’t designed for this position and instead force your hands inward so your shoulders are hunched.

  • A mouse that fits your hand

    • A responsive mouse that is comfortable to use will help to reduce strain on your hands.

  • A monitor display set at a comfortable height, within arm’s reach

    • To protect your eyes from strain and fatigue, make sure you can see what’s on your monitor or laptop screen clearly, without having to crane or bend your neck.

    • You can raise your laptop or monitor as needed with just about anything that’s flat and wide, like a stack of books. 

    • But for more sturdiness and finer control over the height of your display, consider a laptop stand or monitor arm. 

  • Good lighting 

    • Good lighting is important to reduce eye strain and avoid craning your neck at an unnatural angle.

      • Natural lighting in your workspace is ideal because it can boost your sense of well-being and energy while reducing eye strain
