Working at a Desk

  • Take frequent stretch breaks if you have to sit for a long time.\
  • Sit with your knees at a 90-120-degree angle. An angled footrest may help you feel more comfortable.
  • Make sure your chair fits correctly. Allow for two inches between the front edge of the seat and the back of your knees.
  • Choose a chair that tilts back so you can rest while you’re reading what is on your computer screen.
  • Elevate materials or your computer screen to avoid neck fatigue.
