Office Ergonomics

Make these four changes right now!

Sitting at a computer for long periods of time can take a toll on your body. By not sitting with the correct posture, it is easy to end up with all the pains (back pain, neck pain, knee pain), and tingling of the hands and fingers.

Here are FOUR TIPS on maintaining good ergonomics and staying comfortable at your desk during the day.

  1. Support the Lumbar Curve: Sitting in a way that supports the natural curve your low back

  2. Balance Sitting Bones: Make sure that your weight is even over your pelvis... yes, this means not crossing your legs!!!

  3. The 90/90/90 Rule: This rule refers to setting up a 90-degree angle at the following joints: Elbow, Hip, Knee. Raise or lower your chair height so that these joints find the most ease (you may need a little stool under your feet if you are a shorty like me!!!)

  4. Looking Downward: Position your screen so that your eyes are looking 10-20 degrees downward.

Remember that the best position is your next position, so get up and move frequently. We can come to your workplace for a 30 minute NO SWEAT movement session - inspired by yoga, rooted in science. Or read through our blog for more office movement tips.
