How to improve your posture at work?

Study Reveals that
33 of employees have taken at least one day off
work due to back or neck pain last year, with
almost half reporting that their pain is
triggered by spending long periods of time
sitting at their desks. Improving your posture at
work has become an essential thing nowadays.

1. Ask for a workstation assessment from HR


  • The British Chiropractic Association revealed
    that just a fifth of the 1,643 workers polled had
    been offered a desk assessment, ergonomic chairs
    or laptop stands by their employer to help reduce
    the level of pain they experienced. If workers
    use display screen equipment every day for more
    than an hour, then employers must do a
    workstation assessment.

    and minimise back pain. Standing desks are

    pain. You can switch from sitting to standing
    through the day. It reduces the strain on your

4. Position your desk essentials around you




  • Make sure all of your work essentials are within
    reach on your desk so that you arent awkwardly
    twisting or turning to grab items. Having to
    stretch or move in a weird position can place
    unnecessary strain on your body.

5. Stretch your muscles to improve your posture
at work




  • Whilst you are stuck at your desk all day, try to
    do some desk exercises to stretch your muscles as
    it wreaks havoc on your posture. Research has
    also found that regular movement breaks every 30
    minutes greatly reduces the health risks posed by
    sitting.

6. Set Reminders




  • If you struggle to remember to take regular
    movement breaks, try to set yourself a reminder
    to get up and move about. A reminder will get you
    into the habit of taking breaks and getting away
    from your desk.
