10 Ergo-Minded Goals To Strive For In 2019

Ergonomic Goals 2019
Each year it's important to set new goals and comfort standards for personal performance in order to evolve with the times. Workers looking to kick productivity levels into high gear will want to pay close attention to today's post. Here we're highlighting key tips, ideas, and product suggestions designed to refine your interior while boosting operational functionality. Enjoy!

1.) Stand More

Take a stand for ergonomics in 2019! Stand-up work habits are more important than ever. When you stand to compute and tackle your daily tasks, blood flow is improved fatigue is reduced. With height adjustable desks, sit to stand attachments, and perch stools you'll be equipped with the tools you need to stay active in.

2.) Sit Less

Sitting isn't the enemy, but you still need to avoid office chair based computing sessions that last longer than an hour. As you sit for long periods of time, muscles begin to stiffen up because blood flow is restricted. This is when strain, fatigue, and even pain begin to set in.

3.) Compute At Eye Level

Are you looking down at your computer screens when computing? It's time to make a change. Grab a stack of books or literature to place underneath the base of your computer. With your screens at eye level you'll reduce visual strain and neck related issues. Use the stacked books as a short term fix. Professional monitor mounting solutions are available from brands like Bush Business Furniture, OFM, Mayline, and Systematix for under $300.00

4.) Set A Consistent Break Schedule

Committing to a healthy schedule of sitting and standing can be difficult at first. While you're trying to figure things out, a consistent break schedule is key. Stand up about once every hour to walk around your space and get the blood flowing. Grab a drink of water to stay hydrated. If possible, step outside to get some fresh air and natural light. Short

5.) Conduct Simple Stretches

A few simple stretches conducted daily will help you work smarter, not harder. There's plenty of "deskercise" guides available on the web. Look up a few and try them out. What do you have to loose?

6.) Stop Hunching

The back of your office chair provides the essential support needed to work comfortably. If you find yourself leaning away from your chair to type, this "hunching" method is putting you at risk. Make it a point to stay in contact with your chair when computing, that way it can do its job effectively and so can you.

7.) Practice Proper Feet Placement

Avoid sitting with your feet perched on the base of your office chair. This creates a poor transition from the seat to the floor that causes blood flow to be restored. Alternatively, sit with your feet placed flat on the ground and facing your monitors. This may require a bit of seat height adjusting, but it's an absolute must!

8.) Master Your Tools

If you've invested in an arsenal of ergonomic tools, you've got to take the time to master them. When was the last time you broke out the owner's manual for your chair? Give it a read to ensure you're getting the most out of the adjustment features it has to offer. Likewise, you'll want to refresh yourself on how to properly adjust your keyboard tray, monitor arm, and the other ergonomic computer accessories you have present at your workstation.

9.) Limit Stress

This one is easier said than done, but far from impossible. You can limit stress in the workplace by collaborating effectively with your coworkers. You can also try changing your diet. Swap out the fast food and carbs for healthier options packed with the nutrients you need to maintain energy levels. All of the goals highlighted today will work together to reduce both physical and mental stress in the workplace.

10.) Stay Productive

Last but not least, it's important to stay productive. Down time and boredom are productivity killers. In addition to working smarter with ergonomic tools, it's important to maximize your time around the office. You should always be looking for new ways to improve productivity. Don't be afraid to talk with coworkers about what works for them. Simple practices like creating a daily list of tasks to accomplish can make a big difference!

Rise To The Occasion With Aberdeen

Mayline Aberdeen Ergonomic Desk Review
The Mayline Aberdeen collection now offers height adjustable desks that make it easy to transition between sitting and standing. This popular furniture line is rapidly becoming the preferred choice of executives looking to design ergonomically correct interiors that are up to date with the latest trends.

Aberdeen height adjustable office desks are available in 4 quick shipping laminate finish options that are durable and scratch resistant. With an array of matching components including file cabinets, bookcases, and storage pedestals, refining your interior is easier than ever.

Aberdeen Adjustable DeskWith an Aberdeen sit stand desk you can raise or lower your operating surface at the push of a button. These days, most business executives don't like the idea of using bulky desktop risers atop their beautiful furniture. Needless to say, they can be a bit of an eyesore.

Aberdeen Sit Stand DeskIn terms of value, the adjustable ergonomic workstations from the Aberdeen collection are pretty budget friendly. The ARDH7230 model is the most affordable at $992.99. This is pretty comparable to a variety of non-adjustable executive desks from competing manufacturers.

Aberdeen Ergonomic L Shaped DeskNeed a bit more operational space? No problem! The Aberdeen series offers adjustable L shaped desks for sale like the AT56 for $1483.99. This station includes a 72" bow front desk that pairs with a matching return that also raises.

Aberdeen Electric DeskHeight adjustable desks and ergonomic furniture make it easy to stay active throughout task filled work days. Most healthcare professionals recommend taking at least one 10 minute break per hour to refresh your muscles and get the blood flowing. Unfortunately, this isn't always practical. With an adjustable desk you can maintain productivity levels by continuing to compute from the standing position. While it's still good idea to take breaks, you certainly won't need as many to stay refreshed.

Not all desks that raise and lower are created equal. The Aberdeen series offers exceptional quality that's backed by an abundance of customer reviews. The ability to create ergonomically correct work environments that can adapt on the fly to meet the needs of any task has Aberdeen in the upper echelon of furniture collections.
