We can't avoid it - our work requires us to spend time at our desks and on our computers. The hours can pass by quickly when we are so absorbed and the ideas are flowing - but then your body starts to chime in... your neck, upper and lower back and shoulders are stiff and achy. Your knees are sore. Your head starts throbbing. Maybe your forearms get tight. These things distract you and you lose focus, productivity goes down and your left feeling crummy and drained for the rest of the day.

It doesn't have to be this way! Simple changes to the way you sit in your chair, monitor placement/height, keyboard/mouse placement and lighting can make all the difference in how your body feels while you work - and after work. It will also decrease your risk for common overuse injuries that can occur from unhealthy sitting postures and using technology.
