Sometimes, finding a comfortable position at your desk during a long day seems impossible. For those living with arthritis, it can be even harder to adjust, and the pain likely occurs more often. Unfortunately, those living with this debilitating disease find it more difficult to perform some of the regular daily tasks that come with a desk job, such as typing, writing, walking around the office and simply sitting back down at the designated workspace.
If you find the pain unbearable and need help adjusting the space, here are a few tips for making your workspace more comfortable:
1. Invest in a New Chair
Perhaps your current seating arrangement is making the pain even worse. You need a good, sturdy yet comfortable chair to accommodate you; after all, you spend most of your day sitting at your desk. Investing in a high-quality, ergonomic office chair designed with a curved backrest, armrests and foam padding is a simple way to address lower back pain and provide support and comfort. Make sure it also has adjustable seat height because changing your position at your desk based on the set up ensures your posture is on point, which can also reduce back pain.
2. Cater to Your Individual Temperature Threshold
It’s no surprise that your joints get more tense in the winter; cold air impacts muscles and bones, and causes more aches and pains than you’d experience in the summer. The same holds true in a cold office setting. Because you likely don’t have a personal thermostat that’s unlocked to adjust at your disposal, make sure you have options for catering to your own temperature-adjusting needs. Leave a sweater at your desk, keep a small personal heater near your feet or bring in a blanket to warm you up when the office feels brisk. These solutions are excellent ways to loosen up your joints and find comfort so you can get back to work.
“Taking breaks throughout the day helps with concentration.”
3. Take Breaks Throughout the Day
Spending too much time sitting down is just as bad for your joints as standing and walking around too often throughout the day. To ensure your knees don’t stiffen under your desk and your wrists don’t cramp up from typing all day, take breaks at work. Not only does taking breaks alleviate joint pain and aching, Homedit stated that breaking up your workday helps with concentration and can even make you more productive and efficient! If you’re not used to taking breaks, set alarms in your phone as reminders or start scheduling time to step away from work into your calendar. Once they become a habit, you won’t have to rely on reminders, and joint stiffness and aching will vanish.
