Prevent WFH Injuries for $2.25 a Day

Prevent WFH Injuries

Turns out, working on beds and barstools is not good for your body. Who knew?

Well, we all sort of knew because our offices were always talking about ergonomics. But we took our ergonomically designed and carefully positioned chairs, desks, keyboards and monitors for granted. Today, the work-from-home-force is suffering a second pandemic of neck pain, back pain and repetitive stress injuries.

Pain is sending people to the chiropractor (avg. visit $65) and the massage therapist (avg. visit $75). The poor ergonomics of your WFH space may even be causing debilitating conditions, such as carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis and bursitis.

This small investment—less than you spend on your ’bucks every day—will make you more comfortable and more productive. But even the standing desk is no substitute for getting up and moving around. There’s nothing like a demanding dog to make sure you get up, go out and readjust your eyes. If a $500+ adoption isn’t in the cards, try the $5 BreakTime app.
