    Photo of presenter Maggie DownieNow that most of us are working from home (and so are our children and significant others) our workplace may not be ideal. We may be sharing space with relatives or working on the couch because it is the only space available.Even in an ideal situation, working from home does not always come with the best ergonomics. The sit-stand desk from the office is now a pile of boxes you stack and remove. At home we may be creating an office out of our couch, bed, floor, dining room table, or a desk if we are lucky.

    In this workshop Maggie Downie from Personal Euphoria provides tips on how to make your home office as ergonomic as possible. Tips and images reveal how to create different positions throughout the day no matter what your work surface. We’ll show moves you can do to relieve discomfort from non-ideal sitting situations. We’ll also review some of the important basic guidelines of good ergonomics that will help limit and reduce pain during your workday.
