You probably spend more time at work than anywhere else in your life. This year, resolve to make your office, home office, cubicle, or co-working space one that supports your health and well-being.

Get Comfortable

While the rest of your frequently used spaces--your bedroom, your TV room, even your bathroom--are designed with comfort and health in mind, your office probably wasn’t planned in the same manner. Although we are beginning to understand the importance of ergonomically appropriate furniture (according to OSHA, 33% of lost time can be attributed to musculoskeletal disorders), many people still sit in chairs that don’t support them, using their bodies in ways that make them hurt.

This year, commit to to being pain-free at work. It may take a few tries to get the right set-up for you, but going home without an aching back or searing headache will be worth your time and effort. 

Consider this office desk from Bester, with an electric height adjustment function, allowing you to work at the perfect height, whether you're sitting or standing. 

This Lifespan monitor arm features a 360-degree swivel, so you can view your screen at precisely the right angle for you. 

Go Green

If you work in a crowded office, you know how quickly bacteria and illnesses can spread among coworkers. Turns out, there's a very easy way to combat the sickness--and the stress--that seem to multiple in the office. Put a plant on your desk. Yup, that's it!

Studies have shown that plants act as air purifiers and stress-relievers. They're also aesthetically pleasing in a room full of hard surfaces and neutral tones. 

No space on your desk for some leafy greens? Check out this beautiful credenza, made from Sheesham wood, a tree native to the Indian subcontinent and southern Iran. Plenty of storage inside, and the perfect canvas for a jungle of new office plants. 

Do You

Today more than ever, consumers are demanding custom furniture. Whether it's imported upholstery, reclaimed materials, or specially-designed office features, you have more options than ever before to invest in furniture that is right for you. 

This year, look for pieces that express your unique personality and make you happy! If your office is feeling heavy, how about a super-modern see-through office chair to add some visual interest? 

Need some privacy, but also a place for pictures of your little ones and those new plants? Buck tradition with some fun room dividers that double as shelving space.
