For most office workers, being glued to their desks while typing away at their computers for an average of 10 hours a day is already a part of their normal routine. However, sitting at the computer all day may not exactly be good for the body, as it can bring about backaches due to poor posture and eye strain, among other effects. On the other hand, being in a desk job does not have to be an ordeal for your health. If you are one of those people who have to be at a desk all day long, there are some simple steps that you can follow in order to improve your posture and keep your health in check. There is of course an even better option. Lobby your employer to allow the use of standing desks and/or treadmill desks. Sitting has been shown to have severe detrimental effects on employee health so anything you can do to keep active is critical to your long term well being.
