Best Ways To Arrange Your Office Workstation

Make Your 9 To 5 Life Healthier & More Comfortable with These Tips!

Even with a sit-stand desk and micro-walks throughout the day, sitting is an unavoidable part of office careers. Luckily, there are many ways to arrange your workstation to make your 9 to 5 life healthier and more comfortable.


Properly Set Up Your Screen:

If your computer screen is set too high or low, this could contribute to shoulder or neck fatigue at the end of a long day. The top of the screen should be set at eye level; this way you do not have to constantly look up or down

Invest in an Ergonomic Chair:

Consider using a chair with a backrest that supports the curve of your lower (lumbar) back. Sit back in the chair and position your thighs horizontal to your knees at hip level. Rest your feet comfortably on the floor or on a footrest.

Avoid Your Cell Phone When Answering Emails:

If possible, avoid cell phone or tablet use when answering emails. If you will be spending more than a few minutes answering an email it’s best to sit at a desk on your computer with proper posture.

Improve Posture & Keyboard Techniques:

Adjust your keyboard to a height where your elbows are bent approximately 90 degrees and your shoulders do not slump.

Utilize Computer Glasses:

If you use progressive lenses in your glasses, a slight head tilt is needed for these glasses to function. This tilting action may be the cause of your fatigued neck. Consider asking your eye doctor for glasses that can be worn while at your desk.
