Even though a bad posture can seem somewhat comfortable at times, it loses its quality in the long run. And if you have to sit at your desk for more than 3-4 hours at a time while at work, you definitely won’t want to practice a bad posture every day, since it will not only make you uncomfortable, but it might give you health problems as well.
So, to avoid those visits to your doctor and chiropractor, make sure you follow these tips:
Practice sitting up straight while at your desk. A good big and tall office chairs can help with that, but even if your chair doesn’t have good reclining capabilities, make sure your spine remains erect and your shoulders are straight whenever you sit down at your desk.
Another essential consideration has to do with the position of your feet. Keep them firmly on the ground, and if at all possible, avoid crossing them too often, or keeping one foot at a greater height than the other for longer periods of time.
Finally, make sure that you have a chair with arm rests around the same level as the height of your desk or keyboard. That way you can comfortably sit at your computer while making sure your arms and shoulders don’t have to deal with too much stress during a long and tiring day of work.
