Do you spend hours every day sitting down at the screen typing away?  Ask yourself these questions to see if you’re stressing your body by not doing it properly!

And here’s a picture of proper hand posture:

 

My office has a semi-ergonomic setup, and I’m working on making it better.  I just bought a large monitor that I can connect up to my laptop that is at eye level.  Trouble is, I often get sick of working there and tend to take my laptop to work in a sunny room, especially when the weather is nice.  So I often catch myself slumped over my laptop, squinting at the screen.

Here’s to proper posture to increase our endurance while we work!  Now, if someone could only come up with a few more hours in each day…
