Check out these simple steps you can take to help optimize your posture and improve your comfort when working at home.

 

1. Select your work space

  • Select a work space and chair that allows your keyboard to be located at or just below elbows height when your shoulders are relaxed, and your elbows are about 90 degrees.
  • If this is not possible, get creative and utilize a cushion or folded blanket to raise you up.

 

2. Maintain a good posture

 

3. Consider standing occasionally while working

  • Get creative and utilize your kitchen island or an ironing board as the standing desk.
  • Ensure your table height is set to the level of your elbows.
  • Standing for up to 20 minutes at a time is recommended while longer durations are not advised.
  • If you feel tension in your hips and thighs, take a break and sit.
