Adjust the Height of Your Chair: The average desk height is 29 to 30 inches tall. For some, this could be too tall or too short.

That’s where your chair comes in. So when you adjust your chair, make sure your elbows are bent to 90 degrees. If your legs are not touching the floor, add a footstool to support your feet as needed.

Adjust your monitor: so it’s close enough about arm’s length. You’ll be able to reach it without having to strain your eyes or bend forward and adjust your posture. Raise the monitor up until the top of the screen is level with your eyes. For laptop, use a kickstand to raise the screen up to the proper height.

Mind Your Mouse and Keyboard: Where your hands end up is where you keyboard should be. Mouse, right next to the keyboard to allow free elbow movement instead of your shoulder to prevent overuse or strain or pain.

Position Your Phone on your non-writing side and preferably use a headset so you don’t have to cradle the phone to your shoulder.

Because we all slouch in our chairs, while seated, try some basic exercise such as chin tuck, neck stretch, pelvic tilt, and scapular retraction. Consider other ergonomic office furniture.
