You’re only as good as the equipment you use

If I’ve heard my wife say the above statement once, I’ve heard her say it a billion times. In fact, I’ve made similar statements in my course of the day – like in the kitchen. I love to cook and know that if you aren’t using quality pans, appliances, and utensils, your work is harder and your results aren’t as pleasing.

We both agree that the truth of the statement is even more vital to work than to play.

When it comes to Office Furniture (and Home Office Furniture ), equipment, accessories, and Supplies, your brain knows (and responds) when you’re serious enough about what you’re doing to demand that your furniture and tools be just as serious about what they’re doing!

In the history of our home business, I’ve worked on the living room couch, at the dining room table, on the deck, at the patio table, even in the bath tub. However, when I’m stationed at a top quality desk like a Height Adjustable Desk from Simply Ergonomic and sitting in an ergonomic chair my body finds most agreeable, the Multi-funtion Ergohuman Office Chair with Headrest (pictured below), the creativity flows SO MUCH more freely. It’s as though my brain cells say, She’s serious about this, let’s give her all we’ve got

let’s make that Since I REALLY need my brain cells to make a call to action more often, I’ve started doing all of my writing and brainstorming at my workcenter.

One of my favorite parts of my workday is when I come across fresh suppliers, online stores, and manufacturers. It’s like finding a new store in the mall you’d never seen before – everythings new and promising. I especially love when my new find is relevant to one of our blogs – then I get to tell others about it. Simply Ergonomic Business and Ergonomic Solutions is one you’ll want to check out. Not only do they have beautiful office furniture and accessories, the delivery is included in the price on most products so you don’t get stung at the checkout.

Ergonomics, are you working in the right position?

Have you ever thought about how important it is to sit in the right position?
The majority of people subconsciously sit in the most comfortable position they can. It is fine to do this occasionally, but not a good practice for many hours of work. If you don’t take regular exercise and your work is desk bound, you might end up with back problems. Office workers often complain about stiff back, stiff neck and lower back pain. Some companies will offer free gym membership or yoga lessons, in house back training exercises, and even massage services.

The office equipment is also important: sitting on the right type of office chair should not be overlooked. Nowadays, office chairs are specifically designed to suit specific needs and tasks. Some of the most ergonomic chairs are fully adjustable to the human body, which include adjustable arms, knee tilt and back height. Some of the leather office chairs are incredibly comfortable for many hours of work. The foam of the seat can be moulded in a very ergonomic shape that fits perfectly the curves of the human body. Some will argue that Mesh fabric also stretches to your body shape giving well-distributed support. Once you are equipped with the right chair, you should follow basic guidelines regarding your position.

One of these is to sit in an upright position with your elbows at a 90-degree angle, while typing. Additionally, your monitor should be levelled with your eyes, or slightly lower, and at a comfortable distance, neither too far, neither too close. It is also important to move your legs on a regular basis to avoid feeling numb. If you don’t want to get up, flexing your feet and tiptoeing will also be beneficial. Simple exercises like these will help avoiding thrombosis, as it will help pumping the blood up to the heart (a well-known advice on long distance flights). Standing up from time to time, stretching or taking a brisk walk will also help. Ideally you should also take a 10-minute-pause from looking at the screen – at least every two hours. Use this time wisely to do your filing, post the mail or tidy up your desk. All in one it is necessary to have the right furniture to sit on and work at, combined with a healthy living, you should enjoy many hours of work while becoming more productive.

Office Colours

In branding and marketing colours are carefully chosen according to the psychological effects they may have on people. There is no doubt that the colours surrounding our daily life have a direct influence on our mood and behaviour. Some years ago when I was at University I was renting a room in a superb Victorian flat along Battersea Park. The room was very spacious but the owner had painted the walls in a dark deep red, which was unusual but did not put me off from moving in. However this year I became depressed and I am ashamed to say, lethargic, I think the colour had a negative influence on me. On the contrary my flatmate who had the yellow room was always happy and energised, the girl renting the blue room was relaxed and cool headed and the guy renting the dark green room was never there!

Equally, influence by colour can be used in the workplace. Companies with old and tired furnishing tend to look quite dull, compared to some of the new modern office designs, boasting bright ergonomic office chairs , modern desks and colourful office partitions . The positive use of colour is well-known in young internet companies as well as design and PR agencies – this goes beyond benefiting the company’s image, it truly promotes a creative environment. Google’s offices are well known for their coloured gym balls and funky office furniture, and even one of the first on site crèche. The psychology of colour is perhaps best measured in call centres where a buzzing/fast-paced environment is best stimulated with energizing colours rather than calming ones – expert advice from an experienced office fit-out consultant will do the trick to revamp a site.

As for me, as soon as I have finished the plastering, I am off to the paint shop to buy some bright yellow paint for my home office!

Sitting Correctly

Have you ever thought about how important it is to sit in the right position?
The majority of people subconsciously sit in the most comfortable position they can. It is fine to do this occasionally, but not a good practice for many hours of work. If you don’t take regular exercise and your work is desk bound, you might end up with back problems. Office workers often complain about stiff back, sour neck and lower back pain. Some companies will offer free gym membership or yoga lessons, in house back training exercises, and even massage services. The office furniture is also important: sitting on the right type of office chair should not be overlooked. Nowadays, office chairs are specifically designed to suit specific needs and tasks.

Mirus Mesh Office Chairs

The Mirus Office Chair has a lot going for it in more ways than other office chairs. Like its cousins in the Ergohuman chair range, it has the single lever that controls seat height, seat depth and back tilt. The seat height means you can make sure that your feet comfortably touch the floor: if you have long legs, the seat will be higher than if you have shorter legs, where you will need to lower the seat to assure that you feet are touching down perfectly. If your chair is adjusted to the height of your desk then you may require a foot rest so that your legs don’t dangle. If your feet are not firmly on the floor, the chair could swivel a little to either side and this could pull a muscle in your back as you try to adjust yourself to the new and unexpected chair position.

The seat depth means how close the seat pad is to the chair back and, depending again on your height, you might want these two parts close to each other or further apart, as the idea is to make sure that your legs bend just after the seat pad ends, rather than trying to bend before hand, which would stop your feet touching the floor and could impede blood circulation.

The back tilt makes you feel comfortable in this ergonomic office chair and helps create the right distance needed for your extended arms, when you are working at your computer or desk.

The back height adjustment allows you to get the lumbar support exactly where you need it. This really is important, as a lot of sickness is caused by bad backs and that bad back will affect quality of life, so making use of that lumbar support facility can both reduce and prevent future discomfort.

If you’ve ever been working from a chair that doesn’t have armrests, you’ll know that strange ‘elbows in the air’ feeling and be able to appreciate that resting your lower arms on armrests reduce tiredness in your arms and make work a lot more comfortable. The armrests on the Mirus cater for height, angle and depth changes, so an adjustment can be found to meet your personal needs.

That leaves only the upholstery to think about and, with all adjustments in place, the Mirus should fit you perfectly and make long days more fruitful. I know mine works for me. The Mirus chair has a Zero Pressure seat cushion helps to distribute weight evenly across the seat pad to provide maximum comfort and support.
