Tips on How To Work From Home The Healthy Way

As a freelance writer, I have to say that I definitely enjoy being able to work from home every day, as opposed to having to drive into an office day in and day out. I save money, time, and stress on the commute both ways (namely because there is no commute), and I am able to adjust my own personal work space so that it is able to fit my health and wellness needs in an ideal manner.

This last part is especially important to me, mainly because injuries related to a poor ergonomic design in the work place are way more surprisingly common than many of us may have ever initially realized. Believe it or not, back pain is one of the top causes of doctor's visits in the United States each and every year, and scientific studies that are done on the matter have successfully revealed that the stress and strains that are brought upon the back and spine in an office or a typical workplace setting are usually to blame for quite a surprisingly high amount of injuries each and every year.

If you have been thinking about working from home for quite some time now, and you have the resources, capability, and most importantly the passion and drive to go through with the idea, I would highly recommend doing so, if not at least so that you can take more control when it comes to improving and maintaining the healthy functioning of your back and spine, while also working to prevent future health issues in this area of your body from occurring at all. As I learned from a very helpful article by How Stuff Works, here are some easy and very useful tips on how to make sure your home office works to promote better back and spine health. 

First of all, you will want to make sure your chair, desk, and computer screen are properly adjusted and outfitted to your specific body type and measurements. Make sure that you are able to sit down with your back pressed against the back of the chair and both feet planted on the ground without any strain. Next, be sure to adjust the computer screen so that it is at your natural eye level perspective, in order to prevent yourself from having to strain by hunching over your shoulders or neck, which can cause quite a lot of unnecessary strain on your spinal column over time.

Another way you can promote spine health is by visiting a chiropractor on a regular basis. You may want to consider consulting with a chiropractor at The Joint in order to get started on the right path towards better spine health.
