Is Your Workspace Affecting Your Health?

Working behind a desk used to be considered one of the safest occupations. Because really, what can you do to yourself sitting in front of computer. Many new studies have begun to show this type of work can, in fact, be harmful to your health.

Have you ever heard of the term “ergonomics”? This is the study of how the human body relates to tools and equipment. This term defines how the body, its cognitive abilities, and its movements ‘fit’ with the devices you use. For instance, ergonomics would determine how your back fits in your office chair.

When you work behind a desk, how you ‘fit’ with your computer, desk chair, handsfree headset, or even your keyboard can directly affect your health.
