Home Computer: Sitting All Day?

SITTING ALL DAY ? If you are on the computer a lot, sitting can really do a number on your body. It is easy for time to sweep by and realize you've been sitting for 3 hours or more.

There are a few things you can do to improve your circulation, strengthen your muscles, lubricate your joints and align your skeletal structure while you are on the computer.
  1. Set a timer and take breaks every hour and walking around or do a task around the home, go outdoors and stretch, Breathe in some fresh air. This is a great solution.
  2. Part of the day, prop your computer up at a comfortable level so you can work without stooping.. . You can see I used my laundry basket on my stove. Maybe you have a shelf or bookcase you can use that is the right height. You can also use a carboard box. Get creative.
  3. Get a Ball Chair

Tips for standing at the computer:
  • At the computer I stand with feet shoulder width apart. My pelvis is relaxed and tucked forward so as not to sway the lower back. Ever so often I shift my weight to the right leg and then to the left leg then center my weight between my feet. This strengthens your legs, circulates the blood and keeps the energy flowing.
  • While you are experiencing down time or waiting for downloading, uploading, listening to videos, you can do some other tasks around the home. It is easier to move right into a task if your standing already.
  • To ease your back prop one foot on a stool or box. change from one foot to the other.
