We spend a great percentage of our lives at work. The Department of Labor states that as many as 70% of the nation’s workforce are office-based. When you work in an office environment, chances are that most of your time is spent behind a desk, probably using a computer or similar device.

It is estimated that musculoskeletal disorders caused by poor positioning at work is responsible for around 34% of work-related injuries, costing employees more than $20 billion in terms of medical expenses, worker’s compensation and a decrease in productivity each year. In a bid to tackle this problem, an increasing number of employers are now implementing a strategy called ergonomics in workplaces around the country.

The holidays may be a time of celebration, but the pressure involved means they can often be as stressful as they are enjoyable. Unfortunately, this stress can have a significant effect on your body since when you feel stressed, your body produces hormones that trigger your natural ‘fight or flight’ response. This response causes your heart to race, your breathing to speed up and your muscles to tense, ready to react. These effects aren’t serious if they only happen once in a while, but when your body goes through this process repeatedly in a short span of time, it can be bad news for your health.
