After you draft several documents, do some reports or write programs, you may feel a little bit tired or bored. However, there are many small gadgets to relieve fatigue and promote your office life. Let’s have a look.
As we know, many office workers suffer from lower-back pain, cervical pain and so on. Long sitting-hours is the main cause. If you choose another way to finish your tasks, like standing to check the e-mail your boss sent you just before, you will take less risks of suffering this kind of pain. Besides, you can also use your laptop with a laptop stand.
Maybe you usually hold your laptop with a single hand, which seems a bit burdensome, even though you are standing.
But when you have a laptop stand, you can adjust the angle and height that suit you. Then you don’t have to stare at the screen and sit on your chair like a strong adhesive. Just stand there and give your back a relief.
A soft and right cushion is a perfect buddy for comfortable office life, especially a cushion which has the functions of correcting back sitting position and keeping back relax.
When you feel working is so boring, a cushion can also delight the monotonous office life. A good cushion with attractive design is perfect.
3.POT PLANTS OR FLOWERS
Imagine yawning, stretching lazily in a fragrance of flowers. A beautiful vase makes your office more enjoyable. Maybe it is a little bit expensive for buying flowers every week or there is a workmate who is allergic to flowers. You can hang the fresh flowers for several days to make dried flowers and then you do not have to worry about the price and appreciate the beauty of life.
If you do not like flowers, poting plants is also a good choice. Something succulent or something with a bracket?
