Are you maintaining a healthy posture at work?
Updated: Aug 12
If the answer is "heck no," then please consider this a sign that it's time to take a deeper look at your workspace and desk setup. What starts as a simple misalignment of your joints can develop into inflammation, which in turn results in pain -- arthritic problems -- and, eventually -- more significant physical issues. Take a mindful look at your posture and seating arrangement today. Using the following checklist, hold yourself accountable and see what changes need to be made.
• Are your eyes level with the top of your computer monitor?
• Are your shoulders relaxed and low, instead of high and hunched up? • Are your elbows bent at a 90° angle with your forearms parallel to the floor? • Are your feet flat on the floor, and is your spine straight and tall? (Your lower back has a natural curve that should be supported by your chair.) • Are your upper legs at a 90° angle from your body? (If you’re short, you might need a footrest. If you’re particularly tall, you’ll need a higher chair or desk.)
