The Aches and Pains of Working

Don't ignore those new aches and pains that accompany entrepreneurship.

Before you come down with something serious, try these preventative measures:

  • If you're a homebased entrepreneur (or just take work home at night), don't use your kitchen table as a computer workstation. The height simply isn't right for typing.
  • Speaking of typing, if you do a lot of inputting, use a wrist rest.
  • If you spend significant amounts of time on the phone, invest in a headset. This will alleviate shoulder and neck pain.
  • Make sure your furniture, particularly your chair, is ergonomically designed. The possible additional cost is well worth the potential savings in downtime and medical bills.
  • Take time during your day (or night) to take frequent breaks, and try some daily stretching and strengthening exercises to ward off recurring problems.
