    Why focusing on physical, mental, and emotional health is a must

    Written by: Rebecca Greier Horton, Workplace Well-Being Knowledge Lead at Herman Miller

    Self-care has been a hot topic in 2020. And now, given the fact that many of us are working from home, it’s even more important. How do we look after our mental, emotional, and physical health while trying to manage the challenges of working remotely?

    When it comes to WFH, comfort is key. Take time to set up an ergonomic home office. This will help prevent the musculoskeletal disorders that can occur when you work on a laptop for long periods of time, and it will increase your cognitive engagement. So, where to start?

    1.Light It Up | Select a spot where natural light is your primary light source. Research indicates our sleep cycles and even our hormones are positively affected by this. If your setup is near a window where you can let the fresh air circulate—even better!

    2. Police Your Posture | Remember that bad posture still counts when you work from home, and that how you sit today will shape your body forever. It’s important to choose an office chair that supports your body. A recent study by Herman Miller and Texas A&M shows how the right chair can influence cognition and your body’s ability to handle stress.

    3. Get a Move On | Move your body! Whether or not you have space for a height-adjustable desk, research from the University of Waterloo advises that for each hour worked, we should spend 30 minutes standing.

    4. Treat Yourself | If you’ve hesitated to purchase a good sit-to-stand desk for your home office, consider making the investment in your health.

    Take Away: Practicing self-care should be your number one priority as you work from home. It will help you be the best partner, caregiver, mom/dad, leader, friend, and contributor that you can be.
