Straight Talk about Sitting Straight

Posted by on Jan 7, 2012 | 0 comments

I don’t think I’m alone when I say that I’m tired of drama. Employees, managers and donors are all looking for straight talk. And let’s face it, there’s more than one kind of slump.

So here you go, straight talk about sitting up straight. Don’t dismiss this as fluff, a simple posture adjustment can make your job much more pleasant!

My mother always told me to sit straight and stand up straight – I wish I had listened. Because I didn’t listen, and because of the hours I spend at the computer, I fight back strain nearly every day, and I’m not alone. According to Science Daily, the percentage of Americans who suffer back pain is on the rise.

So let’s read Maddie Ruud’s straight talk about sitting up straight! I found this post at HubPages to be very helpful. Maddie shows through words and illustrations how your body should align with your chair, your desk, and your computer to avoid eye, back and wrist strain.

Considering the amount of time most of us spend on the computer, I believe this information can be life changing – so much so that I’ve rearranged my desk/chair/computer set-up as a result of reading it. Make this a final step in your “Getting Back Into The Swing of Things” efforts!

Straight up.
