Final Thought

While these ten steps will offer you a better and healthier working environment, it is important to remember not to hold this, or any other posture for extended periods. If possible, change your working posture several times during the day. If you can, work part of your day sitting, and part of it standing. It is imperative to take rest breaks from your terminals. 

  • Exercise your eyes for at least 30 seconds every ten minutes.
  • If you are experiencing any discomfort, evaluate your work habits and environment.
  • Be aware that home and hobby activities can contribute to discomfort that you are experiencing at work.
  • Maintain good overall muscle tone with a sensible exercise program. See your physician for recommendations, or before starting any exercise program.
  • Seek professional medical attention if you are experiencing a problem. Take an active part in alleviating your problem(s), but do not rely on self diagnosis.
