Steelcase research shows 9 typical postures adopted in the modern day office environment. Ergonomics is no longer about a ‘correct’ sitting position, it’s about movement and adapting our posture to the new and evolving technology that we work with.
The latest statistics on distraction at work are scary! Every 3 minutes, we are either distracted by something or someone, or we distract ourselves, by changing task, checking our phone or some other means. To add to that, research tells us that it takes nearly 20 minutes to get back on task after being distracted. Just think what that means for our performance, productivity and stress levels every day.
The good news is that research also tells us that Mindfulness techniques including yoga and meditation help us to focus when we want to and on what we want to. In fact the latest research tells us that as little as 10 minutes a day of mindful meditation can rewire your brain building your ability to concentrate.
Think out of the box – think wellness at work!
