During the COVID-19 crisis many of us are relocating to a new work environment, our homes. Working from home is not without challenges, personal and professional. When preparing to work from home we tend to focus on the equipment: laptop, printer, monitor and internet connection. While this is important, we should also be mindful of where we choose to work within our homes and the ergonomic settings.
Initially working from the couch or your favorite recliner may sound enticing, but in the long term, it is not ergonomically healthy for your physical self. Awkward positions may cause us to experience fatigue and discomfort, and if not corrected, leaves you vulnerable for muscle, tendon, ligament and nerve damage.
