How to set-up a healthy home-working space, Li-Yeng Choo

Learn how to create a workspace that doesn't make you feel like you need a deep tissue massage at the end of each day. Plus, create habits that will make home-working feel a whole lot healthier.

Why we love this course

The irony of recommending this course while we work hunched over 12” screens at a kitchen table is not lost on us. Like many of you, we NEED this course in our lives to regain our pre-Covid postures.

Chartered Physiotherapist and fellow enforced home-worker, Li-Yeng, knows that setting up a safe and comfortable home-working space is neither intuitive, straightforward or a priority. Until you start to feel as though you need a deep tissue massage or maybe some time being stretched out on a medieval rack at the end of every day. 

The uncomfortable (get it?!) truth is that if you don’t have a good home-working set-up you run the risk of having to deal with some serious physical health issues. And, let’s face it, some of us are home-working for the long haul so we need to take it seriously. In this super practical and incredibly informative course, Li-Yeng encourages you to take a holistic look at how and where you work. 

Your equipment and furniture are only one part of the story. Behavioural and lifestyle factors can have a big impact on your health as a home-worker and Li-Yeng encourages you to explore some of the underlying factors that contribute to the way you are working (the fact that you have been trying to work at home during a global pandemic is fully acknowledged). 

This course provides you with a systematic approach to help you assess your current workspace and give you the knowledge, skills and confidence to set-up a better one. Get ready to transform a space in your home into a healthy, productive workstation that suits you. Whatever your work needs or household situation. 

Right, time to straighten up (literally) and get the credit card, we’re signing up.
