An Open Letter to Santa: Let’s take a look at posture

Dear Santa,

As the head of a reputable toy factory that employs large numbers of elves, it’s time to evaluate your corporate wellness approach. Posture is often overlooked when it comes to employee health, but it can majorly affect the quality of our work. Let’s take a closer look.

Encouraging good posture in the workplace starts with you. It concerns us that you’re a bit of a sloucher. Hunching over reindeer reins and slouching under a bursting sack of presents is no way to set an example for your elves. To make matters worse, work environments these days aren’t conducive to maintaining good posture. Our studies even show that the average worker spends roughly 38 minutes per hour slouching at their desk. Picture your elves: at this very moment they’re probably hunched over at their stations as they work tirelessly to assemble the presents on time.


The good news is that we have an easy solution: the Lumo Lift. It’s a small posture-coaching wearable that clips onto your clothes (be it a santa suit or an elf suit) and gently vibrates when it senses slouching. We highly suggest making it your corporate gift this year.

To break it down for you, here are a few reasons why focusing on posture will be good for your business:

  1. Santa, you and your elves need to live forever. This is no easy feat, and it definitely requires getting into the habit of a healthy lifestyle. Fixing your posture (and maybe eating less christmas treats) is a great first step, and you’ll see major healthy returns such as less back pain, higher energy levels, and even better memory. In turn, this will promote other healthy workplace habits. Soon enough, you’ll be taking team runs around the North Pole while tracking your biomechanics with our smart Lumo Run shorts.
  2. Ever heard of a power pose? Fixing your posture is proven to boost your confidence levels and will make you come across more powerful. Elves may be short, but with good posture and that extra boost of confidence, they’ll be feeling tall.
  3. Did you know that posture affects productivity? Common symptoms of poor posture are feeling sluggish, and tired — not ideal conditions for working. When your elves reach the “2pm slump,” that time of day where you start getting distracted at work, practicing better posture will instantly improve their mood, teamwork, and open-mindedness.

In conclusion, Santa, we leave you with one request: take care of your employees’ posture. And yours too. We promise it’s worth it.

Happy Holidays!

Respectfully yours,
The Lumo Team
