Comfortable and Productive

When you include work-at-home businesses, telecommuting, and corporate downsizing, many people are finding themselves in a "home office."  Considerable latitude should be used when defining "home office."  As in upgrading to the dining room table from the previous work station, the family sofa!

The physical outcomes from that latitude, however, are likely to include an impressive list of neurological and orthopedic woes.  Some sensible and relatively inexpensive modifications can boost your productivity and keep you from being counted among the working wounded.  Bubble wrap as a wrist rest, for example.

An often-overlooked aspect is lighting.  Task lighting customizes the amount and positioning of light to your individual needs and activities.
