Make Working from Home, Work For You In these unprecedented times, many of our patients and members of our East Ivanhoe community may find themselves working from home for an indefinite period of time. We at Vital Spines Chiropractic are here to help. If you need some guidance on how to make working from home, work for you, here are some simple tips you can start using today.
• Routine – wake at the same time, eat regularly, and make time for exercise to help maintain your physical and mental wellbeing.
• Set up a productive ergonomic space – a separate study or space in the kitchen. NOT the bed or on the couch. This allows your brain to differentiate work from relaxation time. Get an ergonomic/supportive chair to the table and sitting with your feet either flat on the floor or supported by a footrest. Arms should be relaxed by your side (wrist straight when using mouse and elbows at 90-110deg when typing), with you posture relaxed and tall. If using a standing desk, even better, maintain an upright relaxed posture and use a footrest. Your eyes should be looking straight ahead at your screen and if you’re working off a laptop, you should buy a separate mouse and keyboard and elevating your screen, to help keep your posture straight.
• Take breaks – Every 30 minutes or so, get up and do a little stretch or something quick and active like 10 squats or star-jumps. As long as you’re moving!
• Stay connected – Colleagues and friends you would normally see every day, are only a phone call away so stay connected with them by having virtual video meetings, or a casual chat to simply check in with them.
• Technology breaks – At the end of your day, try and take a break from technology and screens by going for a walk outside, spending time with those in your home, cooking a meal or taking up a new hobby.

If you would like any further advice or assistance on implementing good spinal health habits while at home, contact us on our website or by phone on 94997005.
Stay safe friends, Drs Gillian Nixon, Cas Grace and Gaya Nanayakkara and the Vital Spines Team
