Ergonomics offers solutions to problems people face in the physical universe. In other words, ergonomics seeks to make things easier for people, to create tools and techniques that naturally fit the human form and human ways of thought. Ergonomics can simplify your life.

This is a busy time of year. Kids are going back to school, families are returning from vacation, and the days are getting shorter. Basic Ergonomic Tips for now include:
• Get enough sleep.
• If you feel yourself getting harried, STOP. Take a deep breath, hold for 5 seconds, and slowly release it. Let the breath take all the tensions of the day with it as it leaves you and floats away.
• Remember to take care of yourself. Re-set priorities if you need to.
Have a GREAT September!
