Keeping a Healthy Posture at Work

A day in the office typically means long hours of sitting in the same chair. Depending on where and how you sit, this could lead to back pain and developing poor posture. To avoid these, it is important to invest in a good office chair, such as the ergonomic Herman Miller Aeron, that will best support your back.

In addition to finding the right desk chair, there are other ways to make sure that you are comfortable while maintaining a healthy posture at work. To keep a good posture, make sure to keep your shoulders squared, belly in, and chest out. It also helps to keep your chin up; you can still look downward at your computer, but make sure that your head does not lean forward too much. This will keep your neck from straining. Lastly, do not forget to take that stretch break when you need to!

These simple changes can dramatically change your workday. Comfortable, high-quality furniture and maintaining a healthy posture position will make those hours at the office much shorter and more enjoyable.
