How are you sitting?

Here in the library we spend a lot of time on our computers, as do our students. It’s easy to start to slump and forget that spending so much time sitting still is hard on our bodies. Here are a couple resources to help us all stay on track, and prevent aches and pains later on.

  • The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has a handy guide to how to properly sit at your desk, as well as how to arrange your chairs and keyboards for maximum benefit.
  • The American Chiropractic Association has some tips for how to stand, sit, and sleep. 
  • Here is a short video explaining how to stop yourself from slumping at your desk. Use your webadvisor to log into Films On Demand to watch this video and/or see the other helpful segments about posture that are available.
