“Push aside the mouse”

Movement is a requirement and characteristic of human existence. Unfortunately modern man often forgets about this now, because our body does not indicate a lack of intense exercise, unlike reminders of thirst or hunger.

If we remain sitting for too long, then the result is our body stays in a static position without us noticing. For this reason, at the end of the day we have sore lower-back and stiff neck.

We can avoid these symptoms with some small tricks, and some attention and a couple of simple exercises.

Pay attention when you arrange the area where you work!

The keyboard should be in front of us, so that we not need to turn sideways all the time. The upper edge of the monitor should be at eye-level.

If you are copying text, move the papers so they are sometimes on the left, and sometimes on the right, to reduce chances of having a painful neck and back.

The seat height should be adjusted so that our feet are on the ground, and keep our knee at an angle of at least 90 degrees or more.

Our lower-back should be supported by the chair, or use a cushion.

Ideally, our elbow should be resting on the desk, and when using a mouse, the wrist should be supported. (Use a mouse pad that raises the wrist to the same level as the palm of the hand.)

If we do all this, there are only the exercises left.
