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.
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.
Did you have a sit-stand desk setup at the office? If you’ve got a folding table, you can recreate it at home! Even if you didn’t have one at work, you can try it out at home with your folding table.

Online safety is key too, whether you’re in safety management or you’re a DJ or a quilter or office worker trying to make your space ergonomic. January 28 is Data Privacy Day, which means it’s a terrific time to review your online security.
Though we love all hobbies, we have a special love for crafters, quilters and sewers! Why!? We get the BEST feedback from them in our annual survey. Telling us how thrilled they are to be able to work at what they love...and for longer periods...since they found our folding table risers! And we love to help save their backs by lifting up the surfaces that they work on.
In 2020, I resolve to take care… of myself. Join me in taking care of YOURself. Why is this important? At the risk of sounding cliched, remember the safety procedures they give you on the airplane. Whose oxygen mask do you put on first? Yours or your child’s?
We talk a lot about health and safety and things like that in our posts. But what we don’t talk a lot about is that doing things safely can also make things easier. Whether you’re taking care of yourself at work or at home - hopefully both! - you’ll find that safe can be easy. [...]
