From back ache from poor posture to eye strain from inadequate  lighting, there are some serious health risks you need to be aware of if  you work from home.

You’ve no doubt found yourself hunched over your keyboard, back arched,  face too close to the computer screen when working from home.

Poor Posture

Sedentary Lifestyle

Lack of movement or physical activity leads to severe problems for our bodies, including obesity, diabetes, heart disease, depression, and anxiety.

Eye Strain
