Tech Tip of the Week: Posture

Spending so much time sitting at a computer, it can be easy to forget to mind your posture.

Here are some tips on how to have a better posture.

  1. Try to stay aware of your posture throughout the day!
    • This could mean setting an alarm on your phone to remind you to check your posture or even trying one of the apps designed to help you improve your posture.
  2. Get up and move!
    • The longer you sit the more likely you are to slouch, so try to take some breaks from the computer and stretch your legs a bit. This is also a good way to prevent eye strain!
  3. Move your monitor so that the top of the screen is at eye-level!
    • If you’re able to do this it is an easy way to encourage yourself subtly to sit up more regularly.

It’s not just your spine that needs a little attention! Proper wrist posture when typing will be far worth the effort in the long run as well.

  1. Keep your wrists straight and your fingers curved!
  2. If you’re able to purchase one, wrist rests can help encourage better wrist posture!
  3. Regular hand stretches are also a great way to keep your hands and wrists happy and healthy!
