Hold your HEAD up high! One of our worst habits when working at a computer, is holding our head forward to read the screen. Many of us do it without even realizing it! This posture can often result in chronic discomfort and pain including headaches, neck pain and back pain, just to name a few. Ideally, we want to sit back with our chin tucked and ears, shoulders and hips aligned. Your monitor screen should be roughly arm’s length away and the top 1/3 of the monitor should be at eye level. Invest in a document holder that elevates the text you’re referencing to the height of your screen. For more of our ergonomic tips click here.
