 SITTING AT YOUR COMPUTER

Ask yourself to release any extra tension in your neck and back muscles without collapsing downward. Let your head be easy on top of your neck and spine. Lengthen through your whole spine—from all the way down between your hips, to up between your ears. Widen through your whole back and torso. With both feet flat on the floor, allow the chair to support you, so that your weight is evenly distributed on your two sitting bones. Adjust the height of the chair or desk so that your arms can bend at a 90 degree angle to use the keyboard. Instead of craning your head toward the screen, think of allowing the images on the screen to come to you.
