Why is good posture important?
Having good sitting posture is vital to maintaining good health;
especially, in your office where you may be forced to sit for hours each day.
Some of the most common office related ailments are neck and back pain
due to improper sitting posture.
To alleviate these symptoms, try to sit upright with your head balanced above your shoulders, which allows your neck to remain in a naturally relaxed position.
Sit with your rear end towards the back of the chair so that your lower back is supported by the backrest. If using a computer, keep the top of the monitor just slightly above eye level as
this will allow you to maintain good head posture and reduce strain to your neck and upper back.
Proper posture also reduces compression of your upper spine, which allows you to take full, deep, unobstructed breaths. More oxygen into our lungs means better focus and function.
These small steps go a long way in maintaining a more healthy and productive you,
while keeping age related spinal degeneration at bay.
