It’s been a crazy year (to say the least), many of us are still working-from-home and I truly find myself moving from my desk, to my couch, to my bed… it’s so hard to keep still.
But the more I did that, the more I realized that I need it to set up a work-from-home structure, that allowed me to keep up with my wellness and work comfortably + efficiently.
That’s why I’m so happy to be partnering with Logitech to bring you amazing content to help you stay well, while you work from home and spend hours using your computer.
5 Things To Have & Do When Working From Home To Keep Up Your Wellness
♡ ♡ ♡
1. Make sure to get an ergonomic keyboard
Your girl’s wrists were just HURTING… bad!
I quickly realized that because I spend so much time in front of my computer, typing, creating, and just trying to make things happen I was putting a LOT of strain on my wrists and posture.
So I switched to Logitech’s ERGO K860 split keyboard and OMGGGG it is honestly God sent… I never felt so much ease and support. It’s hard to imagine using any other keyboard now that I experienced it.
So definitely switched to an ergonomic keyboard like this, they’re designed for better posture, less strain, and more support. You’ll type more naturally with a curved, split keyframe that improves typing posture. The sloping form reduces muscle strain on your wrists and forearms – keeping your hands and shoulders relaxed.
2. Take breaks for hand exercises
Take breaks in between sessions to do some hand exercises. Every 90 minutes or so, take a break and flex your hands.
I love to do hand stretches & twists!
The key is getting the benefits from these ergonomic exercises is to do them every day, so blood circulation is allowed to flow, and your muscles are never left in a state of atrophy for too long.
3. Switch to an ergonomic mouse
Switching to an ergonomic mouse will do WONDERS for your wrists!
If you’re wondering, the term ‘Ergonomic’ means that these devices were designed for efficiency and comfort in the working environment.
I’m currently using the MX Vertical mouse. Its shape mimics a handshake, and it is amazing to help reduce wrist pressure, improve wrist posture, and relieve forearm strain.
What’s not to love???
4. Take breaks for neck exercises
Most of us spend hours staring in the same direction at the computer screen, so taking breaks to do some relaxing neck exercises is a great way to break that tension in the neck.
It can also help to rejuvenate blood flow to the area and release tension in the shoulders.
- Begin with your head facing forward
- Slowly tilt your head back, hold for 10 seconds and then tilt forward (hold for 10 more seconds)
- Then, slowly turn your head to the right to look over the right shoulder hold for 10 seconds and then tilt forward (hold for 10 more seconds)
- Repeat on the opposite sides
5. Essential Oils
I swear by having my oil diffuser right next to me on my desk. I just leave it on during my work hours, and add some of my favorite relaxing (yet energizing) oils.
You can also rub it in your temples, and massage your scalp for a few minutes daily.
My favs are mint, eucalyptus & peppermint… makes me feel like I’m at the spa!
