Since the making of this video I have been doing a lot of research into back, neck, and shoulder pain as a result of sitting down for long periods of time (read on for some basic tips).What I am learning is that I really need to change some of the bad habits I have formed while sitting on a chair at my desk. We always seem to have to adapt to our chair and desks but I think it should be the other way around.
It is so important that we sit with a good posture and take regular breaks. I will be making a video regarding this topic from the research I do at a later date and I will link it to this video. When sitting on your chair at your desk, try to maintain the natural curve of your spine. A chair with good lumbar support would help with this.
But remember, a chair was not custom designed for you and your body type. So unless your chair is fully adjustable, you may need to improvise to achieve the desired level of comfort and ergonomics for long periods of sitting.
From my research, your eyes should be level with the top of (or near the top of) your monitor. You should use your eyes to look down and not your neck. Tilting the head downward to look at your monitor is bad but tilting upwards can also be bad. It’s all about creating that natural balance so the weight of your head is not putting any strain on your neck muscles.
Also, try to keep your ears level with your shoulders and your elbows close to your body. Your arms should bent at around a 90 degree angle.
VERY IMPORTANT: Please do your own research into this matter. Don’t follow what I say because there is still so much more I need to research on this subject. You can never spend too much time researching this subject because it is so important for our health. We humans are not designed or supposed to be sitting down for the lengths of time we do.
Unfortunately, unless we have fancy and very expensive adjustable chairs and standing/sitting desks, we will have to educate ourselves as best we can. If we sit at the right height, in the right way, take regular breaks, and exercise daily, then we should be able to remain pain and stress free.
It’s all about creating new habits. It will seem strange at first but will be very worthwhile as time goes by.
Stay comfortable at your desk and mind your backs everyone.
