This two-part workshop will focus on how to set up an ergonomic office in your own home so to minimize pain created from long hours of working on the computer.
At the beginnings of the lock down it felt ok to not think about setting up a proper ergonomic office space in our home. After all, in a month or two we would be working from our office chair again, in a quiet environment without that many distractions…. or so we thought… But now that the lock down has gone on for nearly a year, it is past time to shift our way of thinking and to invest some time and effort into looking at what our computer working habits are and how can we create a better working space for ourselves.
In this two part workshop we will look into all aspects of how to set up an ergonomic home office that provides good health while still getting your work done. We will look into the basics of posture, as well as back, wrist and eye care. We will also look into the proportion of working while sitting, standing and walking; and the quality and frequency of your breaks. Furthermore, we will look into the infrastructure used, such as the height of the table, chair, monitor; type of keyboard and mouse. The suggestions to better your office infrastructure will include a diverse range from DIY ideas or cheap props as well as introducing you to what is available on the market. The workshop will be given on ZOOM and will include both mindfulness and practical exercises, as well as a short stretching session.
February 27th, 17.30 – 18.40 CET – PART ONE: posture, infrastructure, quality of breaks
February 28th, 17.30 – 18.40 CET- PART TWO: wrist care, eye care, general environment, questions
After signing up to the workshop, you will receive a link to access the ZOOM meeting.

It is designed to help you create a better working situation starting from exactly where you are. The workshop will be limited to 20 participants.
