As I sit here this morning sipping my morning mocha and looking for a place to get a little admin work done before I see patients I thought it would be great to look out the window and do a little people watching while I get some work done….. wrong. What was I thinking?
It sounded great at first, sitting here with good coffee and chocolate carefully blended together while I view a beautiful Texas morning out the window. Have you ever tried looking at a computer monitor with a bright sunny background in the back? I’ll save you the trouble don’t. Your eyes will be killing you before you get your computer connected to the coffee shop’s WIFI. The appeal of it all sounded great, however had I remembered an article I wrote a while back about visual ergonomics I would have thought better about my seat location. What can I say the Texas sunshine was calling to me.
Visual Ergonomics is the study of setting up your environment for maximum visual comfort and productivity.
