How To Beat the Monday Syndrome
If your workweek triggers feelings of overwhelming stress, anxiety, or sadness, then you may be a victim of Monday Syndrome. Although it's not a clinical term, Monday Syndrome refers to a noticeable lack of motivation or passion when returning to work after the weekend.
Other signs of Monday Syndrome may include feelings such as:
- Extreme fatigue
- Abdominal distension
- Body aches
- Loss of appetite
- Inability to focus
If you've experienced any of the emotions mentioned above, along with the idea that work sucks but it's unavoidable, you've likely been a victim of Monday Syndrome at least once in your life.
If you're an employer, you may have felt that way yourself, and you've most likely seen it in your employees too!
That being said, it's well-known that Monday Syndrome isn't something that only harms the person experiencing it. Studies in neurology and psychology show that negative energy can have a harmful impact on everyone's psychology.
When that happens, everyone is more pessimistic, less motivated, and less creative. However, there's no need for it to be that way!
Ways To Beat The Monday Syndrome
The following strategies can help you out on Monday mornings when you're feeling tense, sluggish, or completely overwhelmed.
Get Ready for Monday on Friday
One of the ways to keep from having a feeling of overwhelm when Monday morning arrives is to ensure that any pressing tasks that stress you out are taken care of by the end of Friday. If there are tasks you loathe doing and you can finish them before the weekend, it's less likely that you'll have to do them when the new week begins.
Get Enough Sleep On Sunday
When going back to work on Mondays, a great way to feel refreshed with the
Why do Children Need Height-Adjustable Desks?
Being a kid and learning these days can be a bit rough. Currently, with the global pandemic of Coronavirus, most children are participating in their schooling at home. Children are doing so via Zoom or the aid of their parents. The current situation has also caused some concern between parents, as well as the current frustrations they have with the school boards. As the global pandemic continues, many people are continuing to adjust to make sure their children get the best education they can.
This unfortunate situation has made it where children are spending most of their time studying and doing classwork online for several more hours than they used to. Much like anyone who works in an office can tell you, this potentially can put a strain on your physically and mentally.
With this being the current norm of schooling, most kids are using their parent’s home office desks or even kitchen tables to do their school work. Sitting in a make-shift classroom for hours on end can be very uncomfortable. This can cause some issues when it comes to their growth and posture throughout the years. There are quite a few cons when it comes to your child sitting at your home office desk during class time. Certain problems could occur, such as:
- Potential heart disease in later years
- Prolonged sitting leading to childhood obesity
- Liver disease
- Metabolic syndrome
If you think about it, prolonged sitting could be potentially dangerous to your child. One of the best ways to rectify these potential threats is having your child us
Key Considerations of Buying an Ergonomic Chair: An Osteopathic Approach
We live in a society today that has accepted the sedentary lifestyle as normal. A sedentary behavior is defined as, “any activity involving sitting, reclining, or lying down that has a very low energy expenditure” (Falck, 2018). This sedentary behavior creates an unhealthy lifestyle that may result in unwanted medical conditions such as: obesity, type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, cancer and even death (Falck, 2018). While some careers do require sitting for extended periods of time, there are ways to combat these negative effects associated with these sedentary behaviors.
What is Ergonomics?
Ergonomics are extremely important in creating a workspace environment that promotes health and wellness long term. According to the Cambridge Dictionary, ergonomics is defined as, “the scientific study of people and their working conditions, especially done in order to improve effectiveness” (Cambridge Dictionary, 2021). The Cambridge Dictionary expands the definition of ergonomics as, “the study of the design of furniture or equipment and the way this affects people’s ability to work effectively” (Cambridge Dictionary, 2021).
The study of ergonomics incorporates the natural physiology of the individual and creates an environment which promotes proper body mechanics. Maintaining proper posture promotes spinal health.
There are many ways in which you can create an ergonomically correct workspace.
1. Make sure you choose a chair that supports the spine’s natural physiological curves.
Having a chair that has appropriate lumbar support can be tremendously beneficial to overall spinal health.
- The height of the chair is very important. Adjusting the height of the chair so that your feet are firmly placed on the ground is essential. If your chair’s height does not adjust to the appropriate height you may require a footrest.
- The placement of your desk is very important to mai
How to Stay Productive Taking Online Classes During Lockdown
The pandemic has upended the world and the field of education is no exception. Students and teachers find themselves in uncharted territory. Virtual classrooms have replaced traditional in-person interactions. Online classes and remote study have become the norm rather than the exception. In this scenario, keeping yourself productiveand focusing on learning can be quite challenging. However, mastering some key skills such as time management and creating a conducive environment at home can help you stay motivated.
Challenges of online Learning
Easy access to technology and the Internet have to some extent made the transition to online learning smoother than expected. However, there still remain quite a few challenges that can keep you from optimal productivity.
- Not everyone knows the ins and outs of operating a computer. With live online classes being the norm, it’s possible that you are unable to resolve every technical glitch on your own and this can slow you down.
- Lack of a quiet and proper space to study and complete coursework or the inability to attend an online class in solitude can prove yet another deterrent, largely effecting on the study effectiveness.
- Sitting for long hours can lead to physical discomfort in the form of back and neck pain. Poor posture and lack of ergonomic furniture can add to your woes. Looking at a computer for long hours can have an adverse impact on your eyes. It can also wreak havoc on your sleep patterns and mental well-being.
- There are likely to be way more distractions at home than in a classroom. This can m
5 Best Study Desks for Kids
You will always remember that first day that your child came home with homework, or maybe that memory is replaced with the time when your child made a fuss over homework. Whichever homework memory you’re thinking of, it probably made you realize that your kid(s) need a working space.
Look at it this way; that’s if you’re not convinced yet, every working adult has a workspace, whether it be a home office or at your workplace. Therefore, children also need a study desk for their books, projects, and homework.
Child experts have emphasized the importance of a study area for your child and how it can encourage interest in school work for kids. Young kids will revel in the idea of having their study corner that they can imagine is their office just like their parents might have.
The dedicated learning area for your child can even be a nice desk and chair set that you have in their room. It will help them be able to separate playtime and study time much easier. Let’s explore some other reasons why having a study desk for your children is important:
- There are less distractions
Distractions are inevitable, even if you tuck yourself in a quiet corner. For kids, anything can serve as a distraction as their young minds are trying to satisfy their curiosity. Having a study desk for your child can help them focus on their studies better and longer than they would if working on a sofa, dining area, or sitting on the floor.
- Cultivates good study habits
A study desk can help children cultivate good study habits like sitting upright and sitting in the best posture. While lying down or sitting cross-legged on a sofa might be comfortable, it is easy to get tired fast and lose concentration from adjusting sitting positions to find one that is comfortable.
- Overall healthier and more comfortable

Why Ergonomists Recommend Chairs with Lumbar Support
Whether you are studying at University, working in an office or working from home via technology one thing is certain you are spending a majority of the work day in some type of chair. Whether the chair is an office chair, desk chair, gaming chair, accent chair, bean bag chair, papasan chair, massage chair, ergonomic chair or egg chair their sole purpose is to provide a chair for which to sit.
While this is true, it is imperative to understand that sometimes a chair is not just a chair. Each chair is not created equal. Short term comfort cannot replace the effects associated with long term pain. This is why it is so important to create a workspace that is ergonomically correct to prevent these preventable symptoms.
By the end of that work day, if you don’t have the appropriate lumbar support you may notice that you are suffering from low back pain, neck pain and/or headaches. It is essential that you have the appropriate lumbar support with your office chair to ensure that your posture is correct. Having the appropriate posture helps alleviate that unwanted pain.
Ergonomists are specialists who conduct research on the study of Ergonomics. Proper ergonomics are essential to creating a workspace that will protect your health.
What is Ergonomics ?
The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill defines ergonomics as the following, “Ergonomics can roughly be defined as the study of people in their working environment. More specifically, an ergonomist designs or modifies the work to fit the worker, not the other way around. The goal is to eliminate discomfort and risk of injury due to work. In other words, the employee is our first priority in analyzing a workstation” ( UNC-CH, 2020).
Ergonomics means creating a workspace environment around the individual, not the other way around. It provides a workspace uniquely created to you for which your individual physiology is taken into consideration
Old Meets New in FlexiSpot Theodore Standing Desk
Tradition and technology come together beautifully to create FlexiSpot’s new executive-inspired Theodore Standing Desk. Named for America’s beloved 26th president, the elegant workstation has all the classic styling of traditional colonial furniture, but with modern upgrades that make it the ideal contemporary choice for a chic and more comfortable home office space.
“The pictures do not do this justice,” says Eliana who purchased the desk in March. “Beautiful piece and well made.”
While FlexiSpot has always created beautiful design concepts for their standing desks, Theodore is the first to incorporate traditional American design elements that make it a modern classic. The solid wood and walnut veneer instantly give it a timeless and elegant appearance that fits into any luxurious bedroom, office, or study. It’s perfectly finished with polished metal drawer knobs that add an extra touch of distinction.
There’s plenty of room to handle all of your important business with a large 47.6” x 23.6” desktop that is wide enough to hold two monitors, a laptop, a mouse plus decorative accessories like a plant or desk lamp.
Flexible Height Adjustments
Don’t let the traditional look fool you! Theodore has a powerful motor built into the desktop that lifts and lowers the desktop from the sitting position to the standing position with the press of a button. Just use the no-frills 2-button control panel situated to the right of the desk drawer to switch positions periodically throughout the day. It’s a healthier option for anyone who loves the rich heritage of colonial design, but wants a healthier alternative to an all-day sitdown desk.
