  • Keep your body in a neutral posture with your elbows close to your core, shoulders open and chin level with the floor.
  • Adjust the monitor height so that the top of the screen is at eye level, and the monitor is about an arm’s length away.
  • Follow the Sit-Stand Switch™ and alternate every 30 minutes between sitting and standing to improve your circulation, calorie-burn and insulin management.
  • And don’t forget about rest time. Take regular breaks to relax your eyes, wrists and body.
