Posture Perfect: How To Sit / Stand The Right Way While Working

How to improve your posture In case you find that your posture does not match the above checklist, there are ways to improve your posture too. Try the following steps: * When standing — hold your head high, chin firmly forward, shoulders back, chest out, and stomach tucked in to increase your balance. If you are someone who stands all day, rest one foot on a stool or take breaks to get off your feet for a while. * When sitting — use a chair with firm low-back support. Keep the desk or table-top elbow high, adjust the chair or use a footrest to keep pressure off the back of the legs, and keep your knees a little higher than your hips. Get up and stretch frequently — every hour if you sit for long periods of time. Do not sit on a fat wallet; it can cause hip imbalance. * When working on a computer — take a 1-2 minute task break every 20 minutes when you work at a computer screen. Keep the screen 15 degrees below eye level. Place reference materials on a copy stand even with and close to the terminal. – See more
