Workshop on “How to set up an Ergonomic Home Office”

A workshop for the general public on healthy computer habits.

After almost two years of working in hybrid formats from home, it is of vital importance to learn about healthy computer habits. 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. I originally created this ergonomic home office workshop for businesses to help them adjust to the pandemic. However, since nearly everyone I know works with computers, I am opening it up for the second time to the general public.

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 look at all aspects of how to set up an ergonomic home office. I guide the participants through practices that provide good health and an increase of productivity. We look into the basics of posture, as well as back, wrist and eye care. We also explore the proportion of working while sitting, standing and walking; and the quality and frequency of our breaks. Furthermore, we examine the infrastructure used, such as the height of the table, chair, monitor, type of keyboard and mouse. The suggestions of how to improve office infrastructure include a diverse range from DIY ideas or cheap props to a glimpse of what is available on the market. The workshop is given via ZOOM and includes both mindfulness and practical exercises, as well as a short stretching session.
