Desk posture

Updated: Mar 6, 2019

Do you find that you feel achy or tight in your upper region of your body after sitting at a computer for a long period of time?

It's extremely important to take care of your sitting posture and make sure you keep moving. Our bodies were designed to move therefore it is important you make sure to take plenty of short breaks.

Poor desk posture may be down to the individual sitting incorrectly or can be caused by ergonomic factors such as bad positioning of the chair and computer screen. My tips are:

1. Sit upright in the chair with all points of your back touching the chair.

2. Sit nice and close to the desk so that your shoulders are not rounding forward whilst leaning toward the mouse/keyboard.

3. Make sure your eyes are level with the top half of the screen.

4. Keep moving, take short 30second breaks every 20 minutes so that your muscles do not shorten and become tight.
