5 Ways To Improve Your Posture While Working From Home During COVID-19 Quarantine

If you’re working from home during the Coronavirus pandemic, it’s possible that you are experiencing neck and back pain from working in your makeshift office at home. How many of you find yourself sitting hunched over a kitchen counter or coffee table for extended periods of time? Maybe the chair in your at-home office is not supportive enough? The additional emotional stressors we are faced with on a daily basis only serve to compound the problem, by tightening muscles, ligaments, and connective tissue. So what can we do to mitigate the pain, stress, and health risks associated with poor posture? Drastic times call for even more drastic measures!

Use These Five Ways to Stay Comfortable and Avoid Back Pain While You’re Working!

1. Most pain associated from poor posture comes from forward head and shoulder posture. This occurs as we lean forward to view the computer monitor. The best way to prevent this posture is by bringing your chair closer to the table and most importantly by sitting at the edge of your seat.

2. Make sure to relax your shoulders, gently pulling back, while at the same time allowing your chest to protrude. If you tighten up your muscles, you are defeating the benefit you will receive. 

3. Make sure that your feet are firmly situated on the floor. If your feet don’t touch the floor, get a book or two to make sure that they do. Legs and feet should be at a 90% angle. Any chair in which your buttocks are lower than your knees, such as in some sofas will eventually cause great pain, so always keep in mind the importance of the 90% angle!.

4. Make sure to set your computer monitor at eye level so that you are not looking up or down. You may need to find a way to either lower or raise your computer monitor.

5. Make sure to get up and walk around for a few minutes every 20 minutes or so to avoid tightening of muscles, ligaments, and connective tissue as well as preventing emotional stress caused by focusing on work for an extended period of time and forgetting about maintaining proper posture.
