Are you a screen queen?
If your job is desk-based the chances are you spend a minimum of eight hours in front of a screen. Whilst everyone knows that staring at a screen all day isn’t great for your eyes, being desk-bound can also flatten and weaken the muscles in your bottom! If you’re sitting in a slumped position at your desk, or your work space isn’t set up properly for your body’s dimensions you will be more likely to develop problems.
Sitting down for long periods of time puts more pressure on your back than walking or standing. Take a look at how you’re sitting: your screen should be eye-level, your thighs should be at 90 degree angle to the ground and both feet should be flat on the floor. For a more comprehensive guide on how to setup your desk space see the Health & Safety Executive website.
