Health Tips To Consider While Working With A Computer

People who have to sit for extended periods at a desk because of their work or schooling need to take extra precautions to make sure they maintain a healthy posture and back.

Once in the correct position, try doing a mental check every 10 to 15 minutes to see if the posture has altered and then correct any changes.

 

Here are some ways to improve sitting posture when working at a computer;

 

*Getting up and moving around occasionally, especially when experiencing any muscle or joint pain

*Keeping the monitor at arm’s length and no more than two inches above the natural line of sight

*Customizing workspaces, for example adding footrests, wrist pads, or backrests

*Using a standing desk to alternate between sitting and standing

*Positioning the keyboard and mouse close together to avoid reaching

*Using an ergonomic chair, a yoga ball, or a knee chair

 *Using a headset for long calls or dictating to reduce neck strain
