Posture is important – especially for those of us who find ourselves working in the office environment, yes?
And I like to think of myself as a health-conscious chap, and by coincidence I’ve come across a few useful resources on the subject of office ergonomics these past weeks. So I thought I’d share a few health & well-being tips with y’all.
Plus, it’s Friday.
Naturally, we have different needs, learning styles, and – perhaps – levels of work-related tension, am I right? Accordingly (and keeping in mind that it is Friday), I’ve arranged these tips in 3, progressively unconventional methods.
1. The protractor method:
You may need to requisition special equipment from your supplies department, or build in some consultant fees with fiscal re-forecasting for office overhead. I’m sure the good people in your HR department would be very approachable on the issue. Maybe on a Friday. Goes like this:
2. The under-employed actor “how to” video method:
Perhaps inspired by the success of the 1985 cinematic offering, Gymkata, the catchy mash-up phrase “deskercize” (!) has granted new life to desperate and out of work actors, and is sure to inspire a cult following of its own. Who knows? – before long, you may be eagerly looking forward to your cubicle just for that rush of adrenaline that comes with the trend. At least on Fridays.
3. The “take it to the river” method:
My own preference for dispelling the office pings and pangs is brief youtube touch base with a personal musical icon of mine and accomplished neckserciser, David Byrne. While most anything of his will do, this cover of the 1974 classic Al Green tune is sure to do the job. Yes, it may impede you and your colleagues from doing yours… especially if you play it loud enough (just a tip). But it is Friday.
Please feel free to share these tips with anyone you think would benefit from a healthier, happier, and hipper workplace.
