Set A Routine
Make a schedule and stick to it – including when you’re done for the day. Include breaks to eat lunch, hydrate, and let your brain and body relax. Block out this time on your calendar just like your other commitments.
Avoid the Sofa
If you can, set yourself up with a separate screen, mouse, and keyboard and adjust them for comfort. Why? Our studies show working with your laptop on your knees, even for only a few hours, can cramp your posture and cause neck strain.
Shake It Up
Sitting for hours takes a psychological toll. Try varying your position based on activity, like standing for calls. Stretching, cardio, and breathing exercises – away from the screen – can help you reset and refocus.
CONNECT. COLLABORATE. CREATE.
Stay connected to colleagues, work without distraction, and sound your best with our webcams, Blue microphones, and headset technology.
Look Your Best
A high-quality external webcam is a valuable asset for any video meeting or conference. Place your camera at eye level and do a test run to ensure you’re well-lit, with no bright light behind you or distractions in the background.
Struggling to stay focused? Block out distractions with a noise-canceling headset. You get your own private headspace, great sound, and an obvious visual that can help set boundaries when others try to interrupt.
Get more efficiency out of your workplace sessions and cut down on side conversations by recording your online meetings. Just make sure to let your colleagues know before you start recording.
Feel Better. Do Better.
We’re dedicated to making tools that make your workspace more comfortable. Our ERGO mice and keyboards can improve your comfort, decrease muscle strain, and boost your sense of wellbeing.
Laptops are unfortunately far less ergonomic than a desktop setup. Stacking yours securely on top of a few books while using an external keyboard and mouse can help. This way, you can still type, but you don’t need to dramatically flex your neck to see the screen.
Set Up Your Chair
Aim for a seating position that lets your feet rest firmly on the floor, which helps to stabilize the pelvis. Try to keep your elbows flush with the table so that your neck, shoulder, and arms have to do as little work as possible.
Positioning Is Key
Your mouse and keyboard position matters. Place your external keyboard near the edge of your desk, with your mouse immediately nearby. And center your space key to the middle of your body and to your screen.
