sit up straight!
We sit in a chair for an average 8.9 hours a day, which is a long time to be hunched over like Quasimodo.
Follow Doctor Posture’s top tips…
1/ Keyboard setup – It should be at the height of your relaxed elbows and near your tummy so as to avoid elevating the shoulders
or over-reaching with the arms. 2/ Screen level – Try and get the top of your display at eye level; the bigger the screen the less stress. If you are working with a laptop give serious consideration to getting a separate keyboard and elevate the screen. 3/ Sit bit – Place your bum near the front of your seat; a forward-tilting chair is more comfy. And use the built-in back support – if you don’t, your head is an unbalanced bag
of potatoes dragging you down. 4/ If all else fails – Lumo attaches to your clothing, monitoring body posture via the Lumo Lift app, then sends an alert if you begin to slouch (US$ 99, lumobodytech.com).
