Proper Computer Posture
Do you find yourself struggling to sit comfortably at your desk all day? If you had to “score” your posture.. would you be proud of you score?
Why is this important?
Poor Posture Can Lead to:
Sore necks Muscle fatigue
Headaches Poor circulation
Diminished lung function Rounded shoulders
What can you do to help yourself?
Keep your head and neck aligned with your shoulders.
As you type, keep your ﬁngers slightly curved and your wrists as relaxed as possible.
Adjust your monitor to be no further than 18-24 inches from your view.
Keep your feet ﬂat on the ground. Try not to curl the feet under your chair.
Base your workspace on your height, not anyone else’s. If you share a work space… be sure to adjust each time you return to your desk.
