5 Tips on How to Setup Your Home Workstation

5 Tips on How to Setup Your Home Workstation

5 Tips on How to Setup Your Home Workstation

Do you know your ideal desk height? What about your ideal keyboard size?

If you need to know how to build a workstation, fear not. It can be a lot of fun. It can also deliver major benefits—if you do it right.

Some aspects of workstation design may be obvious. For example, if your work station makes your back hurt, then you’ll want to change something.

Other elements are less obvious and require a little education or help from an ergonomics expert. Read on to learn the basics.Remote Worker Ergonomics Assessment

1. If your desk is too high, find an adjustable footrest.

Most office chairs are adjustable. Unfortunately, most office desks are not. Finding the sweet spot between desk height and chair height can be tricky.

Sure, you can raise your chair to accommodate your desk. But then where do you rest your feet?

Find a simple footrest to free yourself up to experiment with chair height. You can even do this yourself by stacking boxes or anything sturdy to rest your feet on.

2. Pay attention to keyboard size.

This is easy to overlook, but keyboard size is critical for good ergonomics. Before the popularity of laptops, most computer keyboards were larger. Since laptops aim for compact, portable designs, a major trade-off is having a smaller keyboard.

Using a keyboard that’s too small has two major effects. For one, you’ll type slower, including time spent fixing more typos. You’re also at greater risk for developing repetitive strain injuries like carpal tunnel syndrome.

Whether you’re using a desktop computer or a laptop with a built-in keyboard, you still have options. You can buy an external keyboard that connects to your computer. Two popular connection types are USB and wireless Bluetooth.

Check out our recent blog: “Consider an Ergonomic Keyboard While Working From Home” for some more tips.

3. Consider a sit-stand desk.

Standing desks are increasingly common. This is due to their perceived health benefits when compared with sitting.

Sitting for long periods is indeed bad for blood flow and postural health. On the other hand, standing still for long periods can have its own drawbacks. As with many things, it’s likely best to find a middle ground between movement and rest.

A sit-stand desk allows you to adjust your desk based on your needs. Learn more about standing vs sitting while working here. If you decide to forgo ordering a new desk, just be sure to take breaks from sitting to move around and get your blood flowing.

4. Wear headphones while you work.

A good set of headphones can do wonders for concentration. Noise-canceling headphones will block out distractions. But even basic headphones can help.

Preferences vary when it comes to helpful noise. Some find music helpful. Of those, some prefer music with no lyrics. Others find music distracting and opt instead for natural sounds. More modern variations include ambient, binaural soundtracks.

If headphones appeal to you, then you might like to learn about other gadgets for your home workstation.

5. Location, location, location!

If your work requires concentration, then this tip is especially for you. Pick a spot for your DIY workstation that allows you to work without interruption.

Some potential locales include: Your garage, your laundry room, your back porch, your attic.

If it’s private enough to keep distractions out, then it’s worth considering.

You’re ready to get started on making your home workstation into a productive environment to work on.

The first step of building your own workstation at home is to research with blogs like this. Keep in mind that these aren’t strict rules. They’re more like principles to guide you on your journey.

These tips have something in common: most of them can be achieved with what you already have. Sure, fancy gadgets and special equipment can make the process more fun. But the best workstation designs are simply the most effective.

Don’t feel bad if you’re still confused on what to do next. consider getting an ergonomics assessment of your home office setup from an expert.

Top 5 Work from Home Setups That Scream Dream Job

Top 5 Work from Home Setups That Scream Dream Job

Top 5 Remote Work from Home Setups That Scream Dream Job

If you’re currently working remotely on your couch, you deserve a better workspace. For many, the COVID-19 pandemic has moved people from office buildings and into work from home setups. Advances in technology and new work cultures have also contributed to more companies choosing a remote work environment. Remote Worker Ergonomics Assessment

Even if your new corner office is actually in the corner of your bedroom, it’s imperative to have the proper work from home ergonomics in place. From your schedule to the layout of your workstation, our ergonomics experts will go over everything you need to create your dream home office.

1. Keep to your work schedule.

It is important to keep a dedicated work schedule when you’re working from home. To be the most productive, you should act like you’re going to an office every day. Don’t let household chores distract you. 

During the workday, push cleaning and other tasks off of your to-do list and save them for non-working hours. If you’re most productive in the morning, make these your core working hours. 

The same goes for the end of the workday. Make sure you shut down and unwind. It’s easy to keep working into the night when there’s no commute home.

2. Ensure your home office or workstation setup at least has the basics.

In your new dedicated workspace, you may want to consider investing in a comfortable and ergonomic chair. If you sit for long hours during the day, this can be harmful to your back, joints, and legs. Get a chair that is designed to support you while you work from home.

The table or desk you’re using should be large enough to hold a keyboard, laptop, mouse, and monitors comfortably. A virtual ergonomics assessment by a professional can help make sure your workspace is outfitted properly.

3. Make sure your home office has your dream view.

Most office workers don’t have a great view and may be lucky to even have a window in their office. Take advantage of working from home and sit by a window or near natural light. NBC News discusses the importance of soaking up some sun during the day. The window should not be directly in front of your monitor or causing glare on your screens. It’s best if the window is to your left or right side while working.

Whether it’s a traditional office with a window or a corner of the family room, choose a view that inspires you. You’ll feel more motivated to start work each day when you have something beautiful to look at.

4. Don’t be afraid to ask an ergonomics expert for help with your dream home office.

Comfortable workers are productive workers, but figuring out what to buy can be confusing. Don’t hesitate to contact an ergonomics expert for help designing the home office of your dreams.

While you can check out some of our recent blogs on sit-stand desks, ergonomic keyboards and an ergonomic mouse, we do recommend investing in an ergonomics assessment for a personalized home office setup.

Due to the increase in remote work and home office workers, companies like Solutions Northwest Inc. are now offering affordable Virtual Ergonomics Assessments specifically for remote workers. If your company hasn’t already offered you an ergonomics assessment, consider paying for it with your own money as it will pay off in the long run.

5. Work outside for a little while and get some sun.

One of the advantages to working from home is that you can do it almost anywhere. If you have time, move your office outside for awhile. Read or write outside on your deck, a patio, or in the yard. Make sure there is no glare on your screen or in your eyes while doing this.

Take a conference call on a walk or squeeze in a run at lunch. Get outside and get some fresh air to give you a great natural boost. You may find that small breaks like this can help you remain productive.

In conclusion, take your work from home setup seriously.

Working from home can come with amazing benefits. Remote working, however, doesn’t mean your home office should be lacking the comfort of a traditional office environment. By making an investment in your home office setup, you’ll feel better inside and out.

Work from home setups should inspire creativity. The right space can help you be more productive and set up for success. If you’re ready to upgrade your home office, get started with a virtual ergonomics assessment here.

As always, consider getting an ergonomics assessment of your home office setup from an expert. Solutions Northwest Inc. are now offering affordable Virtual Ergonomics Assessments specifically for remote workers (all you need is access to e-mail or a smart phone).

Working from home can be a challenge. Whether your work environment is too distracting or if your wrists are hurting from improper keyboard ergonomics – there are a variety of low cost, creative solutions which an ergonomics consultant can recommend for work from home/remote-work situations.

Working From Home Strategies: How a Pomodoro Tomato Can Keep You on Schedule

Working From Home Strategies: How a Pomodoro Tomato Can Keep You on Schedule

Working From Home Strategies: How a Pomodoro Tomato Can Keep You on Schedule

Whether you have a home office or are working remotely from home for the first time, staying on schedule can be difficult. Many remote workers claim that their home has too many distractions and they can’t be as productive as they would be in their office. But the truth is that with the right strategy you can be even more efficient while working at home.

The pomodoro technique is not only a great way to attack your to-do list, it can even benefit your mental and physical health. If you’re intrigued, read on to learn more about the pomodoro technique.

Remote Worker Ergonomics AssessmentDiscover the pomodoro technique.

The pomodoro technique has been used since the 1980s to help busy people work effectively. The technique involves alternating between 25-minute hyper-focused work periods followed by 5-minute rest periods. The name, pomodoro, was named by its inventor for the Italian word for “tomato”. This was the shape of the kitchen timer he would use to track the intervals.

The idea behind this method of working is that we can remain very focused and work effectively with a short, manageable time limit that we enforce ourselves.

The format of the pomodoro technique is straight-forward:

  1. Choose a task that you would like to get completed
  2. Set a timer for 25-minutes (does not have to be tomato-shaped, but it can be!)
  3. When the timer goes off take a 5-minute break to relax
  4. After 4, 25-minute sessions (also known as pomodori) take a longer, 15-30 minute break
  5. Repeat as many times as you can and want to for the day

There are more benefits to the pomodoro technique beyond keeping you focused at work.

Breaking up working time into smaller increments is known to improve concentration, motivation, and overall productivity. And allowing for shorter, planned rest times prevents exhaustion or feeling overwhelmed.

Additionally, this technique can help you better plan your day and stay organized when you are trying to juggle many competing priorities.

Perhaps most exciting is that there are even health benefits to working in this manner. If you use your 5-minute and 15-30 minute breaks to get up and move around, meditate, stretch, or prepare a healthy snack you are taking full advantage of every element of this technique.

You can use the pomodoro technique throughout your day.

The pomodoro technique is highly versatile. You can use it at work, cleaning your home, or doing yard work. You can interchange personal and professional tasks into your pomodoro routine as well.

If you are someone that likes organization and schedule, this technique will fit seamlessly into your life. And if you are someone that is not as organized, this technique will help you become one, easily!

The tomato is ticking, give it a shot to stay focused while you work from home.

You have nothing to lose by trying the pomodoro technique. Try it out. Write your list, find a timer, and get going!

If you don’t have a standard kitchen timer you can also use a stopwatch or regular watch. You can even use your cellphone timer or look for one of several pomodoro apps.

As always, consider getting an ergonomics assessment of your home office setup from an expert. Working from home can be a challenge. Whether your work environment is too distracting or if your wrists are hurting from improper keyboard ergonomics – there are a variety of low cost, creative solutions which an ergonomics consultant can recommend for work from home/remote-work situations.

Right now, Solutions Northwest Inc. is running a special for Virtual Ergonomics Assessments (all you need is access to e-mail or a smart phone) in order to assist remote workers and others that are new to working at home.

Setting Your Child up for Success with Proper Online Learning Stations

Setting Your Child up for Success with Proper Online Learning Stations

Solutions Northwest’s Ergonomics Expert, Celeste McLaughlin was featured in a Q13FOX News piece.
See the original article at Q13FOX

Remote Worker Ergonomics AssessmentWith school just around the corner, the transition from the classroom to in-home learning is going to be a reality for most students and parents. Ergonomic experts say proper e-learning environment is key to success.

Celeste McLaughlin with Solutions Northwest in Seattle advises a desk or surface and chair that fit the child. The work surface should be a little below elbow height and make sure your child’s feet don’t dangle off the chair.

Some simple at-home solutions include using a footstool below the desk and propping the child up with household items like cushions or towels.

Raise your laptop to eye-level and hook up an external keyboard and mouse to eliminate laptop hunch or tech crunch postures.

“It hurts you neck and your upper back. Doing it all day, you’re going to have problems, long term problems, so what you want to do, if you’re using a laptop, put something under that laptop so you can use it as a monitor. It can be paper, game boxes, whatever you have. You can build something fun with your kid,” said McLaughlin.

Maintaining proper headphone volume can also keep your child from leaning into their monitor. Also, be mindful of your child’s background during virtual classes. Their bedroom is their personal space and if they’re embarrassed about what people can see, they’ll make awkward postures to hide their background. A solution can be to hang a blanket behind them or use virtual backgrounds.

Have a few work stations around the house to get your child moving to prevent muscle fatigue. Limit screen time to 20 minutes with breaks in between.

Finally, experts advise having a routine with fun breaks built-in for students.

“Having that kind of a schedule reduces anxiety in children and helps them be productive. There are a lot of studies coming out that reducing their anxiety and bringing their stress level down can really help them be productive,” adds McLaughlin.

How to Work From Home Comfortably: Tips from the Experts

How to Work From Home Comfortably: Tips from the Experts

How to Work From Home Comfortably: Tips from the Experts

As you continue to become more accustomed to working from home, it is important to learn the proper ways to stay pain-free and productive from your home workspace. Whether that means setting aside an area to create a new home office, buying an ergonomic chair or desk for your living room workspace, or simply taking more breaks and focusing on yourself. There are so many tips and tricks to make working from home more comfortable. Which is why we asked experts from Miami, FL to Seattle, WA to share their advice about the most effective ways to keep your body healthy and pain-free while working from home.

Create a functional workspace

Working from home can be an enjoyable experience if you follow these tips. Create a functional space or room dedicated to work, make sure to block out time to be most productive and make a list each night of things that are a priority to get Remote Worker Ergonomics Assessmentdone during your work time the next day. In addition, take ergonomics seriously as prolonged poor posture can cause serious issues in the spine. Make sure you’re not laying down on your bed or the couch for prolonged periods of time. –New Leaf Chiropractic

Ergonomics matter. If you are still working on the couch or at your kitchen counter, it is time to stop and set up a workstation that doesn’t put additional strain and tension on your muscles. A good chair and desk allow your body and muscles to work comfortably and safely. –Massage & Bloggywork

Take a 5-minute break every hour

Make sure your work station is set up where the monitor is at or above eye level to avoid causing strain on the neck or back. Also, taking a 5-minute break or engaging in some hamstring stretches hourly will be crucial in pulling tension off of the lower back and hips. –Corrective Chiropractic

Keep your device at raised and at eye level

To keep from hunching over your laptop, raise your device on books or a box so the top of the monitor is eye level and use an external keyboard and mouse. Also, to help you sit up straighter-raise your hips so they are higher than your knees when you sit, which also takes the pressure off your low back (fold a towel to get the seat area high enough if necessary). Remember to stay hydrated and get up and move every 30-45 minutes! -Dr. Jane H. Baxley, Posture Vitality

Avoid eye strain

Don’t forget to address eye strain with the 20/20/20 rule. Every 20 minutes, look at least 20 feet away from the computer for 20 seconds. This is best done out a window with natural light. –The Ergonomic Expert

Try a new movement or exercise every day

The most important thing when you are unable to set up an ergonomic workspace is giving yourself some variety – it’s the spice of life and movement. If you spend a lot of time rounded (i.e. sitting), spend some time lying on your stomach or opening your posture.  Don’t limit yourself to your chair or couch – try a new movement or exercise every day to test your limits!  This ebook has some examples for you.” -Pat Carver, PT, DPT, Limitless Physical Therapy

Don’t sit in a static position for an extended period of time

Do not sit for more than 30 to 40 minutes without getting up and walking around (even briefly).  A properly set up chair and workstation are very important, but the body is not designed for prolonged static positioning. Consider a workstation where you can stand part of the day and sit part of the day, your body will thank you for this.  -Bill Hull, OrthoBethesda

Take care of your body and mind

Working from home requires taking care of your body and your mind; sitting correctly on an office chair or balance ball will help with posture and regular breaks, stretching and standing will help you physically. If you can, make a weekly visit to your spa for a relaxing massage. Take care of your mind and schedule phone calls to friends and family – it’s so important for mental health to stay connected! –Bali BISA

Focus on your alignment and posture

Consider your hips, chest, and head like a snowman and keep all three in good alignment. Be sure your feet are firmly on the ground or an elevated footrest and have everything reachable so your elbows stay close to your side, hands below elbows. Finally, remember humans must move to be healthy – be sure to get away from work and move your body every day! -Jean Massé, Advance Physical Therapy

It’s all about your attitude.  Build on a good foundation by not sitting on your tailbone and hold your stomach in, all of the time. Of course, set up your station with good ergonomics in mind and If you practice sitting for the 24 minutes standing for 20 and moving for 12 rule you’ll often prevent most of those aches and pains and increase your productivity in the process. –Align1 Solutions

Meditate to reduce stress and boost productivity

A growing body of research now supports what many people have experienced firsthand; a brief 3-5 minute meditation practice helps boost creativity, supports nonjudgmental thinking, increases productivity, and lowers overall stress.  With so many types of guided meditation available, we suggest exploring mindfulness techniques until you find what works for you. Calming the mind is a challenge for us all, so be kind to yourself and know that even a short 3-minute practice can have a huge impact on your day. –Body Techniques

Find ways to stand while working

Be creative to find ways to stand. You can place a laptop on an ironing board either on the floor, bed, countertop, or table depending on how tall you are.” –Solutions Northwest, Inc.

Focus on your breathing

I’d say most of the advice you’d get about feeling well while working from home is to stretch regularly. And, yes, you should be doing that! But, the stress of these times is not only physical; it’s emotional as well. Many of us are feeling overwhelmed, and as we move into the Autumn the qualities of lightness and dryness begin to affect us, making us feel ungrounded and anxious. Practicing alternate nostril breathing is very powerful and impactful, almost immediately. –Soma Spa

Try a series of neck rolls every hour

Sustained positions while working at home are bad for the body, and the neck/shoulders area is often the first to sound the alarm through tension and discomfort. Do your neck and head a favor by, every 30 minutes, step away from your screen and do a series of slow neck rolls – both clockwise and counter-clockwise. Kevin Bell, DPT at Kinetix Advanced Physical Therapy 

Engage in proper ergonomics

Most people suffer from back, neck, and wrist injuries due to poor posture. We recommend setting up a proper ergonomic posture with your desk surface at your hand level (ninety degrees to shoulders), eye-level (directly looking at the top of the monitor), a wrist pad, and an ergonomic chair with proper back and neck support.   With these simple steps, you can avoid most problems associated with improper ergonomics. –Star Ergonomics

Consider an Ergonomic Keyboard While Working From Home

Consider an Ergonomic Keyboard While Working From Home

Consider an Ergonomic Keyboard While Working From Home

If you are doing remote work for the first time or have a home office, you are likely spending a lot of time typing on a keyboard for work.

Frequently writing emails, documents, or just surfing the web can cause strain on your hands. If your work requires you to use a keyboard, investing in an ergonomic keyboard may be a great option.

If you are unaware of ergonomic keyboards, don’t worry. Our ergonomics consultants are here to break it down for you.

Here are the pros and cons of ergonomic keyboards, and some popular picks.

What is an ergonomic keyboard? 

An ergonomic keyboard is designed to be comfortable and prevent pain. Most ergonomic keyboards split the keyboard in half, allowing the keyboard to cause less strain in your hands and wrists, which can lead to carpal tunnel syndrome.

What are the pros of an ergonomic keyboard?Remote Worker Ergonomics Assessment

Some of the pros of an ergonomic keyboard include more comfort, as they are designed to keep your wrists and hands in a more comfortable position for an extended amount of time.

Additionally, ergonomic keyboards allow you to find a device that adapts and works better for you, rather than dealing with a preset keyboard that may not be comfortable.

Working in comfort usually leads to more productivity, which means you can spend more time being productive and less time in pain.

What are the cons of an ergonomic keyboard?

Sometimes, relearning how to type on an ergonomic keyboard can be challenging, primarily if you are used to a more traditional style keyboard.

Additionally, due to their split design and shape, ergonomic keyboards can sometimes cause you to type slower than usual before you get used to them.

Lastly, ergonomic keyboards require an investment. Some ergonomic keyboards can be expensive. Though you are paying for a well-designed and engineered product, the price may seem high when compared to a cheap keyboard.

However, many ergonomics consultants would tell you that investing in your workspace will pay off in the long run.

What are some popular ergonomic keyboards?

Depending on your home office needs, an ergonomic keyboard may be an excellent tool to have in your work set up. Here are 3 popular ergonomic keyboards:

1. Microsoft Sculpt Ergonomic Keyboard
Microsoft Sculpt Ergonomic Keyboard
This ergonomic keyboard is popular for those who want an affordable and sleek option. Created by Microsoft, this keyboard is well made and wireless.
Though this keyboard is not adjustable, it still offers a slightly split design and slope that provides a comfortable typing experience.

2. Logitech Ergo Keyboard
Logitech Ergo Keyboard
The Logitech Ergo is a popular, mid-level ergonomic keyboard that is excellent for those who want a more normal typing experience. The layout is closer than other keyboards, but it still feathers out, leaving your wrists and hands relaxed and happy.

3. Kinesis Freestyle Pro Keyboard
Kinesis Freestyle Pro Keyboard
