Workspace and Posture

With many people working from home these days, we wanted to ensure that you are set up for success and not pain!

It may feel good in the moment to work on the couch with your laptop, however, the couch doesn’t offer the needed support for your back and neck.
Make sure you have a work station set up at a desk or kitchen table, preferably at a height where your elbows and knees are bent at a 90-degree angle.

The next step in improving posture during work is understanding what is good posture.
What does it even mean to “stand straight”, or “sit upright”?

Here are some key points to obtain good posture:

– Keep your chin parallel to the floor.
– Your shoulders should be pulled back and down.
– Maintain a neutral spine – no flexing or arching!
– Arms at your sides, with your elbows, bent at 90 degrees.
– Abdominal muscles braced, improving your core muscles as well.
– Feet should be positioned flat on the ground, not crossed.
– While standing, body weight distributed evenly on both feet.
– While sitting, keep your knees at 90 degrees and pointing straight ahead.

However, dehydration can become a chronic condition from continuously not having enough water on a daily basis.
The demographic below demonstrates how important water is for many functions of the body, including lubricating your joints!

How much water does your body need each day?

It is recommended to aim for 1/2 your body weight in ounces. i.e. if you weigh 140 lbs, drink 70 oz of water.
