 GENERAL TIP SAVERS WHILE AT YOUR DESK

           


Change positions every 20-30 minutes. If possible, do some stretching exercises.


Walk around whenever you can. If leaving the office, try to use the stairs instead of the elevator. Try some walking after lunch.

Face your work station. Do not twist!


Keep a foot stool or a small box near your feet, so you can place one foot or both feet up to relieve tension in the lower back.


Arrange your work space. Check the position of your wrists, hands, legs and back. Try to use props (phone headset, wrist pad, mouse pad, back roll). Keep the top of your monitor at eye level, and at arm-length distance from you (see picture below).


Practice deep breathing techniques to relieve excess tension.


Wear comfortable clothes to allow for comfort posture and breathing.
