• Look down with your eyes, not your neck

As many people work off a laptop or a cell phone it is important to keep your head up and look down at your device with your eyes. We’ve found that it helps to think about it as if you are trying to avoid wasted movement, so instead of moving your head up and down try to stay still! 

  • Take breaks to stretch

It’s important to take little stretch breaks, even if that means sitting in your chair stretching. It’s good to get your body moving and this will help loosen up any muscles that you’re tensing up while sitting at your desk. 

  • Get up and move around frequently

Sitting at your desk for hours on end is not good for your body. Even if you are comfortable you should try to get up and move every 40-50 minutes. Not only will this get your blood flowing but it will also help you reset your posture when you sit back down. 

  • Be mindful of what your body is telling you

You shouldn’t feel strain or discomfort so if something doesn’t feel right, adjust. Sit with your back straight and your shoulders back. If you find yourself slouching often, we suggest putting a sticky note on your computer reminding you to correct your posture. This should help you get in the habit of not slouching.

Whether you are sitting at a desk, on the couch, bed, or floor it is important to maintain good posture. Aren’t you tired of your back/neck hurting all the time? These small adjustments will make a huge difference.
