Wouldn’t it be nice to know exactly the right way to sit at your desk to prevent eye strain, back soreness, and other symptoms of poor posture? Not everyone has the luxury of an ergonomics department at their office—but fear not. There’s an easy way to test your workplace set-up without the help of a professional.
To establish good posture at your desk, sit with your back against your chair and feet flat on the floor—if your feet don’t touch the floor, consider a footrest (which can often by expensed). When you look at your computer screen, your eyes should be level with the center of it. If they aren’t, raise or lower the monitor.
