March 29 is National Mom and Pop Business Owners Day. At Lift Your Table we’re proud to be a “Mom and Pop” business. We also like to encourage everyone to shop at other small businesses!
Wednesday the 22nd is Administrative Professionals’ Day. They do a lot of work, for both big and small businesses. And a lot of work we business owners don’t really want to do, frankly! Our administrative professionals appreciate being recognized on their special day, of course. But we think an even better way to appreciate them is to keep them safe while they’re at work! This applies both to the office, and to their home office when necessary.
It’s important, while you’re working from home, not to injure yourself! Stay healthy while you’re staying socially distant. Working ergonomically is a key factor in making sure you’re safe at home.
The problem with home office setups, in many cases, is that you’re repurposing items that weren’t really designed with a home office in mind. You might be working at a table that’s a little too high for you to comfortably type. In general, most tables that are at the right height for eating aren’t quite right to get the proper position.
By now you’ve probably got at least a week of working from home under your belt. Hopefully you’ve settled into a routine, and your household understands when you shouldn’t be disturbed. And yet… still, there are distractions.
The more productive you can be working from home, the better. Not just to show your employer that it’s both possible and beneficial. But also to give you more time with your family. If you can get your work done in a few hours instead of eight, then you have more time with the family.
