Work/Exercise Balance: Why It’s Important, and How to Achieve It
May 11th, 2022
At Ergonomyx, we care a lot about fitness and work. They can be hard to balance in day-to-day life. It’s important to find a way to keep your body moving throughout your week, without letting your work suffer for it, and it’s important to put in your best at work without letting it interfere with keeping your body healthy and active!
We’ve written a great deal on this subject, so we have plenty of ideas about how to combine good work and good health. Check out the resources below, and hopefully get some inspiration for how to make your lifestyle healthier, even with sedentary desk work!
The problem is that our world is built for sitting. It can be hard to keep yourself moving when your eight hours at work are spent sitting in the same position, and then your off-time is spent sitting as well. But the secret to staying active could be those eight hours spent at work.
Working long hours at a desk is necessary for most of us, but it comes with the risk for posture problems. The unnatural postures we hold at our desks can build up and lead to inflammation, pain and muscle strain.
