How are you sitting?

STOP.  Don’t move at all in your chair.  How are you sitting?  Are you slouching?
The average person spends about 3 hours on a computer each day across America.  That can add up.  Make sure that you are sitting correctly, unless you want to have back problems-which you don’t. 

1. Support Your Back

Does the chair you are sitting on have enough lumbar support? The backrest should fit into the natural curve of your lower back, filling in the space between your back and the back of the chair. This helps avoid excess pressure on the spine and makes it easier to maintain good sitting posture.

2. Comfortable Leg Postures

To
promote comfortable leg postures, consider clearing away items from
your legs to allow comfortable leg positions and movement. Feet should
be flat on the floor or you may use a footrest if your feet do not rest
comfortably.
