Proper sitting

keys to proper sitting

  1. Sit in a chair that supports your lower back. If the chair does not support your back sufficiently, you can place a lumbar cushion (which can be bought at your local pharmacy) at the level of your low back, for added support.
  2. Position your chair so that your knees are at least as high as your hips when your feet are flat on the floor.
  3. Your elbows should be rested on the desk.
  4. Your computer monitor should be at the level of your eye, so that you don’t curve your back.
  5. Your desk should be slightly above your waist.
  6. Sit close to your work, do not lean over it.
  7. Do not slump/slouch over while sitting.
  8. Take frequent breaks to get up and stretch.
