Do you sit at a desk most of the day?
If so, you’re not alone. In some professions, workers spend up to of 90 percent of their time sitting – often at desks, typing away on keyboards and looking at computer screens.
With so much time spent at a desk, it’s important to make sure yours is adjusted to your body. Too often, we adjust our bodies to accommodate our workstation rather than the other way around, as it should be.
The wrong kind of desk or setup – a computer screen that is too high or too low, for instance – can increase your risk for musculoskeletal disorders, poor posture, vision difficulties, carpal tunnel syndrome and more.
