“Stay Healthy When You Sit At A Desk All Day!” CORRECT SITTING TIPS AT WORK

1. The top of the monitor should be at eye level. 2. Wrists should be slightly higher than elbows or at same level so arms are relaxed. You may have to adjust the height of your chair to achieve this level. 3. Your feet should be touching the floor comfortably. If you cannot touch the floor, use a box or stool. This prevents increased strain on your legs. 4. Pull the chair in close to your keyboard- no reaching or leaning forward. 5. Take frequent breaks from sitting; be sure to stretch every 20-30 minutes to give your body a break from staying in one position. Set alarms on your computer or mobile device to remind you to take a stretch or walk to the nearest copy machine. Are you still suffering from aches or pain due to poor posture at work?
