Working from Home:

Covid-19 Office Layout | Wellbeing Physiotherapy Leederville

The spread of COVID-19 has changed the work environment for many; from a typical office layout to the comfort of their own homes. With this in mind, we thought we’d give you a few tips to keep your posture in check, as well as keeping you productive even when working from home!

1. Setup

When we are suddenly working from home, it may be tempting to sit in our favourite lounge chairs/beds and work from our laptops. As tempting as this sounds, this will most likely lead to us working with a sub-optimal posture. Our back and necks will be the victims after a long day! If possible, try to use a PC setup at home or simply, place a thick book under the laptop and sit at the table, which will position the laptop in a better position.

2. Accessories

If you don’t have the luxury of a PC setup, here are a few ideas to setup your laptop just like one.

- Use a mouse, preferably a vertical one - Shop on our online shop now ( Free shipping)

- Use a keyboard

- Use a laptop stand/thick book to elevate your laptop

- Try to align the top of the laptop screen to the same height as your eyes

- Try a standing desk!

3. Take regular breaks

An average person can focus approximately 45 mins to an hour, which is the more reason to take regular breaks. While you take a break, stay hydrated and squeeze in a few stretches before you jump back into work. For those wondering which stretches would be good to try, stay tuned for our next blog update!

Happy working!
