ERGONOMIC RESOLUTIONS FOR 2023

Every year we tell ourselves we want to start the New Year with healthier habits, and yet we continue to over-promise and under-achieve. This New Year, consider choosing more practical and sustainable resolutions for your overall health that will last for years to come.

AERON CHAIR SIZES 01 01

Resolution #1: Posture

Healthy ergonomics begins with the chair. A good ergonomic chair will be adjustable, to allow for better control and customized settings. Adjustability is especially important if you have chairs that will be used by different users. Tall people will have different needs compared to people who are shorter, for example.

Our suggestion: The Aeron Chair

Aeron office chair revolutionized office seating with its defining design qualities: the pioneering Pellicle suspension material and its patented PostureFit SL back support, which affords the ideal sit — chest open, shoulders back, pelvis tilted slightly forward. Combining a deep knowledge of human-centered design with cutting-edge technology, the classic Aeron chair is engineered with state-of-the-art adjustability, from the arms, seat height, depth, and recline, to help you maintain the optimal seating posture so you can focus on the task at hand.

Resolution #2: Stand Up

Work routines rarely allow for physical activity throughout the day. We transition from sitting in the car during our commute to work to sitting at a desk for extended hours each day. Our time spent sitting can add up especially if you go home and destress on the couch in front of a TV. One easy way to combat the long hours of inactive sitting is to stand at work. Working while standing engages more muscles and put less stress on your body.

Our suggestion: Nevi Sit-to-Stand Desk

With the efficiently designed and cost-effective Nevi sit-to-stand office desk, you can make your workspace more ergonomic and stay within budget. With one-touch electric movement, this computer desk encourages you to move between sitting and standing throughout the day, lowering health risks associated with a sedentary lifestyle.

Resolution #3: Movement

Our bodies are made for movement. Standing and moving are unique biological triggers that play a key role in being healthy. Unfortunately, the sedentary life that many office workers have adopted affects their health regardless of how much they eat or how much they exercise.

Our suggestions:

* Take active lunch breaks: Instead of sitting on your phone for an hour, spend your lunch break taking a walk outside.

* Stretch every few hours: Create healthy habits by taking 5-10 minutes every few hours to stretch at your workspace.

Resolution #4: Organization

The key to a workspace that encourages productivity and efficiency is organization. When you maintain a tidy desk, you create the optimal space for success. A clean desk can relieve stress, facilitate creativity, and communicate professionalism. Start 2023 with a clean slate, literally.


Our suggestions:

1. Cable Management - Simple to install and use, KnollExtra Cable Management Clips securely attach to the underside of any worksurface to keep cables tidy and accessible.
2. Put away personal items - Even if the desktop itself is orderly, you may not be as efficient as you want to be if there are too many things competing for your attention. Recommendation: Ubi Work Tools - a collection of tools that enable people to organize, personalize, and work effectively.
3. Go Digital
- Paper can easily clutter up your workspace. If you haven’t done so already, migrate your calendar, to-do list and notepad to your computer — and sync them with your smartphone for greater accessibility and utility.

Resolution #5: Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate

When you're in an air-conditioned office, focusing on a million different tasks, staying hydrated isn’t the first thing that comes to your mind. The consequences of dehydration are not always immediately noticeable, however over time your work and health will be negatively impacted.

Our suggestion:

Build up a habit of bringing a full water bottle to work than is easily accessible while at your desk. Try to finish at least one full bottle while at the office each day.

*In general, you should try to drink between half an ounce and an ounce of water for each pound you weigh, every day.” For example, if you weigh 150 pounds, that would be 75 to 150 ounces of water a day.
