Giving importance to Workplace ergonomics for the home office is giving importance to our health and well being.

Workplace ergonomics is the science of designing the workplace and home office, keeping in mind the capabilities and limitations of the worker. … A workplace ergonomics improvement process removes risk factors that lead to musculoskeletal injuries and allows for improved human performance and productivity.1

Studies have shown that ergonomic design in your work space, whether at the office or at home, can not only reduce injury and pain, but boost your productivity and overall satisfaction as well.

This is important specially now since most of us work, will work or started working from home.  The actual office might offer some comforts such as air conditioning, proper height tables and chairs, etc.

But we are talking about working from home, that is why we need to make sure that we can last long hours of work. Unlike real office environments, where you can walk around to get coffee. You can either get your coffee in the pantry or go down to get take out.  This activity of walking helps relieve some of the pains of doing office work.  A luxury you might not have at home due to the absence of peers.
