Monday, June 24th – Ergonomics involves designing the job environment to fit the person and is important to take into consideration at work and home.
Tuesday, June 25th – When working, give your eyes a rest and periodically take time to close them for a minute at a time and then focus on an object at least 20 feet away.
Wednesday, June 26th – Symptoms of some ergonomic issues include tingling, numbness, pain, swelling and loss of grip strength.
Thursday, June 27th – Stretching should be gentle and controlled, not painful. Breathe deeply when you hold your stretch.
