Tips for Sitting Posture at a Computer

People who have to sit for extended periods at a desk because of their work or schooling need to take extra precautions to make sure they maintain a healthy posture and back.

When working at a computer for long periods, a person can help improve their sitting posture by:

  • keeping the monitor at arm’s length and no more than 2 inches above the natural line of sight
  • customizing workspaces, for example adding footrests, wrist pads, or backrests
  • using a standing desk to alternate between sitting and standing
  • using an ergonomic chair, a yoga ball, or a knee chair
  • trying out different keyboard and mouse types
  • using a headset for long calls or dictating to reduce neck strain
  • positioning the keyboard and mouse close together to avoid reaching
  • getting up and moving around occasionally, especially when experiencing any muscle or joint pain
