Office ergonomics

Sitting correctly affects your productivity as well as your appearance and fatigue levels, not to mention pain levels. It also wards off back and other problems down the track.

Here are three sites that offer good information:

  1. This also has good information on lighting, breaks and so on and is good for helping people set up a home office.
  2. This shows you exactly how you should sit at your computer.
  3. This shows you four easy exercises you can do while seated at your desk, with an interesting twist that they’re based on yoga (and Pilates and any other exercise form, I suspect!) But they work, and that’s the main thing.

Discussion questions
