I’m Embracing Ergonomics!

I work from home, and because I don’t have an appropriate desk area, I spend a lot of time lounging on my couch hunched over my laptop. I get to lounge all day! I’m very comfortable! Except that my neck is constantly in pain and I feel like I’m rapidly shrinking.

But as a successful lifestyle blogger, I know there’s a solution to every problem and I have no choice but to relentlessly solve it. There are dozens of ergonomic desk solutions out there, so I carefully did no research at all and bought the first thing I found on Amazon: an adjustable laptop desk that will elevate my computer on any surface and improve my posture forever immediately.

Armed with this newfound confidence, I assembled my laptop desk and discovered that it is very adjustable. In fact, it can even be used while lying down. As a result, I’ve been curled up in a perfect C-shape for the last week and a half, comfortably typing on an elevated keyboard. Getting out of bed hurts me now, but I’m using an ergonomic tool, so I’m very confident that I’m doing the right thing.

This is not a sponsored post, so I won’t link to the adjustable laptop desk I bought, but if you buy the absolute first thing you google, I personally promise that it will be a success 🙂

Health Hack: Eat 3 Meals a Day!

This was one meal I ate, but there were three in total.

When I started my career as a successful lifestyle blogger, I was working in an office. It meant I got to share exciting lifestyle secrets about morning routines and after-work dinners. Now, after a long hiatus where I had no lifestyle at all, I’m thrilled to announce that I am back and more lifestyled than ever. Only now, I work from home! This means I am very zen, centered, and teetering on the edge of emotional collapse at all times.

When I first started working from home, I didn’t have any groceries. This created a lot of confusion: Was there more to life than bagels and expired oatmeal?  How could I obtain food if I was at home all day? Why did I feel vaguely sick all the time? Surely a cup of coffee and a salad of shriveled greens should sustain me til dinner, but alas… it did not.

But then, I stumbled out of doors one night (there’s a whole world out there!) and happened upon the grocery store. At this miraculous house of food, I bought fresh produce and nourishing carbohydrates. I took them home and the next day, I ate three complete meals.

And oh, the energy! I felt so human. So alive. So adequate. And that’s the thing with miracles. Nobody knows how it works! But that’s the beauty of basic biology: it can’t be understood.
