The best position to sit in for a healthy back is as follows:
- Chair close enough to your desk so that your forearms can rest on the surface.
- Eyeline should be to the top of your computer screen
- Feet flat and firmly on the floor
- Lower and upper back should be touching the back of the chair.
If you find your eye gaze in the incorrect position and your feet not flat on the floor you should look at using a monitor or desk riser to help correct this.
As well as sitting in the best position that you can, you should ensure that you are regularly stretching at your desk, even if this is a simple twist of your waist from one side to another and an arm stretch over your head. Where possible you should also go for a walk during your breaks and stretch out your back, legs and neck areas.
