Kick-Start Your New Year: Perfect Your Posture

January 12, 2011 | By | Comments (0)

Not to sound like your mother, but today we’re gently reminding you to sit up straight. Not only will it benefit you in the long run, but you’ll feel better (and look slimmer) all day long.




Here’s how to adjust your desk to help with your posture:


Sit in your chair with your back pressed against the chair back. Place your feet flat on the floor and look at your computer monitor. Your eyes should be level with the center of the screen. If they aren’t adjust the monitor until they are. If you can’t change your monitor height stack large books or reams of computer paper underneath until it reaches the proper height.
