Workplace situations that hurt your health

Your workday can be full of irritations. Here are some tips on tackling them.

Your workday can be full of irritations. Here are some tips on tackling them.

1 Your chair: If you’re having problems with your posture, perhaps your office chair is wrong for you. Make sure it has a good backrest and is set to the correct height. An orthopedic chair can also lessen feelings of discomfort or back pain.

2 Your cube-mate: If the person beside you at work always offers candy and makes a point of sharing it, learn to politely refuse. Then grab an apple.

3 Your computer screen: Staring at your computer screen all day long isn’t thought to cause any long-term damage. However, the reflection from the screen and general fatigue can cause headaches or bleary eyes. Get up and walk around every hour.

4 Your desk: The height of your desk could be wrong — together with your chair — which could lead to problems such as tendonitis (inflammation of the tendons in your wrist).
