Staying Fit When Working in an Office

Staying Fit While Working in an Office

Staying fit while working in an office is no easy task for some of us, especially once that “20 year anniversary” with your company comes around. This blog contains tips for staying fit when working in an office.

1. Get up and move around

Take advantage of any opportunity you get to get up and get moving around. Whatever it may be, be proactive when it comes to your health. Try running those copies over to the post office whenever you find a chance.  It will get the oxygen going and hit the reset button on your brain.

2. Drink lots of water

Water essentially keeps your system clean and you running as efficient as possible. Our advice is investing in a reusable water bottle and take short trips to the cooler whenever it’s time for a refill.

3. Walking to lunch

Getting into your car may save time during your lunch break, but walking to get your meal can be just one more of those precious moments to get up and get going during your day.

4. Eat breakfast and cut out snacks

We all know the old saying breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Not only is it your fuel to get you going in the morning, it sustains your energy throughout the day. Also,  when a properly proportioned, well-balanced diet containing the right health components is the start of your day, you will feel full of energy and ready to take on the world.

5. Take a lunch break at the gym

Depending what your time allowance is for your lunch break, you may be able to squeeze in a quick 20-minute workout to re-energize you after a light lunch.

As for court reporters, there is a lot of required sitting during depositions and at the computer day in and day out.  We follow these basic standards for staying fit so we can continue to produce the best transcripts in Phoenix, AZ.

Thank you for reading our blog and don’t forget to schedule a deposition today!

Advantages of Video Conferencing

This blog is about the advantages of video conferencing.  Video conferencing is a fast and reliable way for legal professionals to conduct business in realtime through the use of a computer and an internet connection. When parties who are not able to be in the same room as one another but still need to attend court proceedings, that is when this innovation is called upon. Video depositions are now more readily available than ever before thanks to the availability of WiFi and the internet.

What is  Coming for Video Conferencing

Video conferencing is an amazing innovation alone. Now courtrooms are attempting to develop a sophisticated holographic technology that uses facial recognition software capable of recreating crime scenes. It is also said to analyze witnesses in order to determine whether a witness is a credible source of information. The advantages of this will be that court reporters will be able to record the witnesses statements, but also analyze how the witness’s facial expressions appear and if the software believes they are telling the truth or not.

This type of advanced technology is still quite a ways away due to the expensive costs that come with research alone, not to mention failed prototypes. One company even gave more than two million dollars towards this impressive innovation. Every day in the legal field we find out that no matter how advanced technology becomes, there is little comparison to the skills of a great court reporter. No matter how much we may be able to speed up the process of how courtroom information is gathered and shared, we will always need the fastest computer available and that is the human brain.
