Poor pos­ture means your body has to work harder to keep you up, which leads to fa­tigue and pos­si­ble in­jury. Good pos­ture re­duces strain on your mus­cles, let­ting you game for longer at a higher per­for­mance level. Good pos­ture has also been shown to im­prove cog­ni­tive func­tion through im­proved phys­i­o­log­i­cal func­tion. So what is good pos­ture? To put it sim­ply, you want your body to be as neu­tral and re­laxed as pos­si­ble, that means you should sit up straight with your head back in­stead of hunch­ing for­ward, keep both of your feet firmly on the floor, about shoul­der width apart, and your arms in a re­laxed neu­tral po­si­tion. For PC gamers, it can help to tilt your key­board in slightly when gam­ing for a more nat­u­ral wrist po­si­tion.
