Puffy eyes and clawed hands: how remote workers may look like in 70 years. Photo
Remote work is a convenient way of earning money that does not require you to wake up early and get to the office every day. However, this type of work hurts human health, as we move little and rarely go outdoors.
Furniture At Work has shown what a remote worker might look like by 2100. The model named Anna has a terrible look - a hump, dark eyes and claw-like hands - which are the consequences of working from home (to see the photo, scroll to the end of the news story).
"Anna shows many physical effects due to constant use of technology, screen exposure, and poor posture, and also highlights potential mental health issues," Furniture at Work says.
The team was inspired to visualise a typical home-based worker by research from the University of Leeds, which showed that a third of UK workers do not have a dedicated workplace at home.
"To visualise the consequences of not having a proper place to work from home, we used scientific research and collaborated with health experts to show what the remote worker of the future might look like," Furniture At Work explained.
If you work from home, make sure you have a comfortable workplace. Lying on the couch will only ruin your back, and the computer screen will make your eyes red and swollen.
Weight gain is inevitable when working remotely, as the body moves little, and the immune system is weakened by the lack of fresh air. Anxiety and depression arise without live communication with people.
To avoid dire consequences, you need to take care of your health and move more. If you have been sitting in a chair for a long time and feel tired, do some exercises and don't forget about your eyes. Every 20 minutes, look away from the screen for 20 seconds, moving your pupils from top to bottom and side to side. Also, eat right to prevent weight gain.
