As part of our Wellbeing Webinar Series, Sequoia partnered with Omada’s Doctor of Physical Therapy, Julie Mulcahy PT, DPT, to discuss this month’s topic, “The Importance of Ergonomics For Your Wellbeing.”

During the conversation, we discussed what ergonomics is, the common challenges surrounding ergonomics, how to improve your workspace, best practices surrounding daily movement, and so much more!

You can catch up by viewing the recording.

Here are a few key takeaways from the webinar:

  • Understanding the benefits of Ergonomics is the first step in improving our own comfort, work productivity and pain triggers.
  • Common ergonomic challenges related to how we might set up our workspace, along with principles that can both positively and negatively affect our sitting and standing posture.
  • Helpful tips and tricks on how to improve our workspace. Finding the correct height, angles, support, and adjustments is the key to a comfortable workspace.
  • Sustainable and attainable physical movement reminders are the key to building & maintaining healthy movement to improve our wellbeing. Be sure to prioritize rest & sleep, take breaks and go beyond your workspace and desk, stay active and stretch throughout the day, wear supportive shoes, and set up a workspace that is comfortable and right for you!

Registration for our next monthly webinar, “Mindfully Nourish Your Body” is now open. The webinar will take place on Wednesday, March 20th, 2024, at 10 am PST/1 pm EST. Registration is available at this link.
