Tips & Tricks:

  • Pretend you are a puppet, held up by a string from the top of your head
  • Keep your elbows close to the body and the keyboard at hip level or slightly lower
  • Keep wrists 100% straight to avoid carpal tunnel syndrome or golfer’s arm
  • Raise your monitor to be at eye level or slightly lower
  • Your monitor should be at least one arm’s length away so you are not tilting your neck up or down
  • Keep your shoulders back, not hunched forward
  • Keep feet, shoulders, arms parallel to each other – this evenly distributes the load on your body and minimizes tension

Tips & Tricks:

  • Your chair should support the natural curve of your lower back
  • Use a lumbar pillow or a chair with adjustable lumbar support
    Keep your feet flat on the floor (if you feel discomfort doing this, look to buy a footrest)
  • Don’t look straight down at your phone, tablet or laptop
  • Buy a phone or tablet holder that you can attach to your desk that will keep your device eye level without straining your arms
