A More Comfortable Computer Experience

Feeling a little achy after spending time on your computer? We hear a lot about tired eyes and poor posture from looking at phones all day, but that also happens if you spend a fair amount of time at your desk. A few simple adjustments can make your workstation more ergonomic - a fancy way of saying comfortable and efficient.

To start from top to bottom, your eye level should be near the top of your monitor. A lot of monitors don’t have height adjustments, so adding a book or two underneath can be a quick fix (and how Emma’s monitor is set up!). The monitor should be about arm’s length away, and have any lighting source to the side or behind you. Your elbows should be at about a 90 degree angle, and a wrist rest can be a nice addition while working on your keyboard or mouse. Your back should be supported by the back of your chair. If not, there are plenty of fancy ergonomic desk chairs, but a pillow can work almost as well. And finally, if you find yourself with only your toes touching the floor, a footrest can be very helpful. Try a few modifications and see if they make a difference. Don’t forget to take a break every now and then as well!
