Comfort at the Workplace: The Steps to Ensure You Have It

September 4, 2018 — by Richard Dawson

A great deal of our life is spent on working. Some of us love our jobs, some of us hate them, regardless of which group you find yourself in, comfort always makes things better. You’re probably wondering now why is comfort at the workplace so essential?

First things first, it lessens stress, and as a result it improves the well-being, reducing the risks of health issues. Then again, it also makes the workplace a happier one.

This can be achieved in several steps: comfortable shoes, proper posture, reduction of noise and eye-strain. Starting with the workwear shoes, it’s advisable to look for specialised retailers that can offer versatility of brands combined with convenient prices.

Depending on the job itself, you may or may not be in need of extra safety in the form of composite cap footwear, but what no worker can do without are breathable shoes that keep feet dry, safe from perspiration which mean there’s no chance for athlete’s foot, and lightweight to reduce fatigue so no matter how much time you spend on foot, you don’t get tired easily.

Slip resistance is another property of quality workwear shoes as it translates to traction in varied terrains, accompanied by midsoles contoured to the foot’s natural shape. Okay, now that you know the importance of great shoes, and how to choose them, it’s time to pay attention to your posture.

Often we experience aches and pains that might appear to have nothing to do with posture, but chronic improper posture can lead to serious health problems, from disc generation, to back, neck, and shoulder aches, including persistent headaches, digestive trouble, and stress.

If your work required sitting hours on end, make sure you have an ergonomic chair, and try alternating between sitting and standing from time to time. It’s recommended to mind the posture no matter the job you have, remembering to keep the shoulders back, and avoid slouching. Something so simple can change your work experience for the better.

Often, we don’t realise the damage we’re doing until it’s done. This applies to the hearing and eyesight too, not realising consistent exposure to loud noise or eye-strain is doing a lot of harm. Sometimes noise can disrupt our work without realising it affects our productivity.

You have to have adequate ear protection, like headphones or tampons and suitable eyewear depending on the job, whereas office workers need to make use of natural light during the day and task lighting when working at night.

Until then, people that enjoy doing recreational drugs will keep on doing recreational drugs, except they’ll have to keep on risking getting them from unreliable sources. I guess it’s safe to say that drugs won the war on drugs.
