Working through the summer months is always tough with our children being around every day and needing stimulation. Having a suitable working environment was important for us to relax and get our work done efficiently. Many of us reduce our workloads to find a good work balance.
Now that kids are back in school and after school clubs, we finally are finding more time to catch up on our workloads and spend more time in the office. To complete the effect of getting some of that freedom to get stuff done uninterrupted, there could be some nice new touches to your office space to keep things interesting.
Chairs More Suited
Over the summer your body has been more active whilst playing with your kids and no doubt finding time to fit in some exercise every day to stay nimble.
Returning to a seated position for long periods of the day is a drastic change that will see the pounds start to make their way around your waist and pains start to appear. For starters, buying a new ergonomic chair that supports your spine and neck whilst you work.
Posture is really important so that you can continue playing with your kids for longer years, so providing for that with adequate and supportive seating. Even if you have had a chair for a long time, it is always worth upgrading to a fully comfortable and fresh chair.
If you find yourself struggling to find workout time, you can still find some with the purchase of a standing desk.
By allowing your body the ability to stand whilst working without slouching and allowing for better blood flow, you are giving your legs and back exercise and providing a natural blood flow to your heart which decreases the risk of heart failure and various physical aches and pains that can become crippling over years.
Standing desks are viewed as essential for physical health as well as mental; wellbeing, and with you not being as active as you would have been through the summer school holidays, it goes a long way towards providing a continued dose of exercise and healthy blood flow during the working day.
With less time to work over the summer, you would have been greeted with less time to keep things organized to the standard you need them to be.
By getting in some new organizational items such as desk trays, cabinets and a whiteboard, you will be able to ensure everything not only has its rightful easy-to-find place, but you have better order to things and can keep things on schedule.
