Yes, Star Wars: The Force Awakens is a huge deal right now. The movie was great all tiny arguments about it aside, and now we’re all scrambling to deck out our places with Star Wars gear. Our nostalgia is in full swing, because we’re living in a time where there are more Star Wars movies coming out, and we all have to prove our geek cred. Some of us go the simpler route by having small nods to the beloved franchise, and others want to be blatant by having logos, figures, characters, and posters plastered everywhere.
If you spend enough time at your desk, you’re going to start noticing little aches and pains in your shoulders, wrists, and forearms. It’s tough on your body to be doing the same repetitive motions over and over again, especially when you aren’t at the optimal angle. If you have a proper chair, desk height, and support for your arms you should be alright, but making your setup to your exact specifications can be difficult.
To many of us, office chairs are the bane of our existence, especially those that work in an office. Circulation is always a huge concern, and many chairs don’t offer proper lumbar support. Even ones that do can be uncomfortable because they don’t adjust well to larger or smaller bodies.
When you think of a pen, a plastic, metal ball-point version comes to mind. Of course, you have likely gone through a few in your lifetime, having to throw them away after you’ve exhausted the ink on the inside. It always feels a bit wasteful, but only the more expensive options will allow you to get refills, and even then, the refills are usually rather costly. With all that effort to save one pen, you’re still throwing out the plastic tube at the end of the day.
Holding onto a regular mouse can put a lot of strain on your wrists after a long workday at your computer. Our hands and wrists weren’t built to sit at such an odd angle for so long, which is why so many people are developing Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. You need to take care of yourself lest you want to deal with costly surgeries. This usually means a change in equipment, but there’s no reason it can’t be awesome as all get out.
If you face long days that start early in the morning and end late in the evening, you understand how important it is that you bring everything you need for the day. Of course, life being the spontaneous little nugget of joy that it is, you never know what you need. While food and water are your main concerns to help keep you alive, you never quite know what sort of tools you may be in want of throughout the day.
While we have access to what the date and time are seemingly everywhere, we’re always buying calendars or watches every new year. We’re fascinated with time since we only have an allotted amount of it to experience life. If your phone, computer screen, wall calendar, and wrist watch aren’t adequate enough at showing you what day it is, then you might be in the market for another way to make sure you know when you are.
How our day goes is not always determined by our mornings, but having a decent start can certainly help the rest of it along. If you wake up on time, manage to bathe, eat, and remember to wash your thermos out so you can take coffee to work, then you’re doing pretty good. However, coffee is a big part of that equation, and should you forget to set up the grounds and water the night before, then it’s iffy whether or not your morning brew will be ambrosia or swill.
We all wish there was an “easy button” for different aspects of our lives. It would be awfully convenient if we could just press a button, and then relationship, work, and other problems in life would just disappear. While you can’t whisk away issues with people, you can make other parts of life far easier. Our smartphones have certainly made things more streamlined, but they can’t do everything for us.
We sit on our buns for most of the day. While we might get up to stretch every once in a while when our legs feel restless or to go get lunch, we really don’t bother moving much. It’s hard to remind yourself how long you’ve been sitting in the same position, if your posture is correct, and when it’s time to get up for a quick walk around the room.
