How sitting all day affects the body

Our bodies were not designed to sit in one position for so long – they were designed to move!

Prolonged sitting increases the risk of developing injuries such as low back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, frozen shoulder and headaches. The adPq latest research also shows that sitting for long periods is potentially dangerous for health.

Learn what kind of movements you can do when you are sitting. It is a simple and effective way to:

  • Reduce physical tension and strain from prolonged sitting;
  • Improve posture and comfort at work
;
  • Enhance well-being and vitality
;
  • Assist in the prevention and recovery from injuries.

When seated, keep these tips in mind:

  1. Adjust the height of your chair so that your feet rest flat on the floor or on a footrest;
  2. Keep your knees at or below the level of your hips. Don’t cross your legs. Your ankles should be in front of your knees. Keep a small gap between the back of your knees and the front of your seat;
  3. Adjust your chair to support your back or place a rolled towel or small pillow behind your lower back;
  4. Make sure the top of your monitor is at or slightly below eye level;
  5. Keep your head and neck balanced and in line with your torso;
  6. Relax your shoulders. Keep your forearms parallel to the ground.

Try not to sit in the same position for long periods.
