Normal has left the house

The quarantine has altered our balance—individually and collectively. 

It's a day-to-day, figuring it out as we go. 

Working from home and schooling from home has illuminated what the caring of ourselves and the caring of others means to each of us. 

In this pandemic lockdown, along with the heightened sense of concern, and not knowing, our sense of equilibrium is impacted. 

It is showing us new things about what it takes for us to stay or return to an "okay" place physically and emotionally.  

Have you ever been on more video meetings in your life?! The tech has propelled us forward with new and lasting ways of relating. But, wow, a day of back to back Zoom calls can wipe you out! Normal has left the house (and the office).

Wild times, helpful tips

Have you found healthy ways to sit or stand at your computer minus the ergonomic furniture of your office? Or are you feeling it from hunching over your laptop at the kitchen table?

Sitting puts our bodies at a 90 degree angle and can be rough on us if we're not careful. So can standing for hours. Changing up our positioning helps to prevent us from feeling stiff and hunched over. Alternating between sitting and standing along with frequent breaks can make all the difference.

In an excellent article, author Cathryn Jakobson Ramin writes on this topic with the Fully company in Portland - What "Ergonomics" overlooked: You. She looks at how “ergonomic” mistakenly became synonymous with “healthy,” and why desk-bound workers are so susceptible to pain and chronic illness. 

Away from the desk

While ergonomics is all about boosting productivity while working, the time spent away from the desk is as important and integral to our lives—for our family, health, friends, and soul. And adds to our ability to be creative and productive. 

Lull by InclineRx is a gentle-inversion table.

For your time away from your desk. For taking a break on. To reset the patterns of your body positioning—slouching, hunching over etc. that happens from working all day, whether at your computer or otherwise. And to prevent these patterns from becoming habitual and painful. 

Built to support the body in a gentle inversion position, Lull is a simple, calming, experiential way to ease the pull of gravity on our bodies. A pause from stress, an escape from the frenzy, and a restful reset. To bring ease to the caring of ourselves. Especially helpful now during the stresses of these coronavirus times. 

Lull was designed with a broad understanding of the human body, ergonomics, and the impacts of work upon our posture and energy. Our product designer, David Ryan created many ergonomic furniture pieces over the years, including active seating perch chairs, and received an IDSA Gold Award for furniture for his LeanToo. 

We're here to support you—physically and emotionally.
