86% of American workers sit at a desk all day long.
If you’re like most people, you probably spend a significant part of your day at work in front of a screen. And if it isn’t a computer desk at work, it’s a T.V., smartphone, or tablet. The amount of time in front of a screen can go be hours. Your posture can cause pain and discomfort. Here are some ways to reduce neck and back pain!
Tip #1 Desk Setup
It’s important to have a comfortable and adjustable chair. Try switching up the positioning of your mouse, printer, and keyboard.
Tip #2 Sitting with Support
Adjust the height of your chair so that your feet touch the floor. Its important to have your feet flat on the floor. This will prevent your posture from slouching forward.
Tip #3 Monitor Height
Most people have a monitor that is low. Place the monitor so the bottom is equal to the level of your chin. When the monitor is too low or not centered, it creates slouching and stiffness in your neck from the angle.
