Ergonomics of Working from Home
Have you found yourself working from home - on the couch, kitchen counter or from the kitchen table? Resolve your ergonomics problems by looking at the source: your body, your posture and your movement habits. How you sit and move while working affects your entire body. We'll teach you to become aware of strain before it causes injury. You will also learn gentle movement and stretches that prevent repetitive strain injuries (RSI) and back pain. Join us as we discuss some of the most common behaviors that come with working in spaces that are not designed with a full workday in mind. Included in the presentation are tips and tricks on how you can work better in these spaces to prevent RSI and body aches.
