As I grasp at the straws of what has gone so wrong with my health for so long, I’m trying with all my strength to do any changes I can. I noticed at some point over the past month that my chair was low, and I realized my laptop was low, so I bought 16 bricks, wrapped them in paper, and it’s been a few days. While I haven’t felt significantly better, I’ve felt some improvements.
After two days of setting up my work-from-home boxes, I feel good about their temporal arrangements. I don’t want to have a permanent space dedicated to this temporary problem. If this lasts more than the local government-mandated two-week period, then maybe I’ll build something more permanent for my vocational or avocational laptops, especially if I don’t receive any noise complaints. I’ve been careful being quiet both on phone calls and walking around. No complaints yet.
I received the loaner laptop and was told to go home immediately. There was no time to prepare my arrangements for a long-term work-from-home environment other than a phone call. By the end of the second day, my back hurt from having to hunch over my laptop. My solution isn’t great; three variably high cardboard boxes. But it will work for now. The goal is putting everything away when I clock out. Feels good currently.
I’ve amassed a small collection of prescription pill bottles over the past few months. It’d be wasteful to recycle them if they still have use. Years back, I put together some rowing machine tools and used some pill bottles for toothpicks and q-tips. Now, I’ve found another use for them: assorted flossing and toothpick holders. I can start using them once I’ve cleaned out the bottle of any medicine residue. How about for sticky labels?
