Those of us that sit at our desks all day likely suffer from back pain. To help promote the proper posture and avoid a slew of sitting-related issues, www.blitzresults.com offers the following tips.
- Place your computer monitor at least one arm's length away.
If it's too close, you will create tension in your shoulders and neck.
- The monitor should be set so that your eyes are at a downward angle.
This helps to relieve strain on your neck and your eyes.
- Sit with the pelvis tilted slightly forwards.
Ergonomic chairs and seat cushions help to retain the backs' natural posture, providing relief to the discs and muscles.
- Move around the office!
Speak personally with your colleagues instead of sending them emails. Drink a lot of water: it's not only healthy, but it will keep you moving.
Adjust the desk and chair to your height so that you are relaxed while sitting. How does that work? Use an online calculator for ergonomic sitting.
