Posture is something that you are in 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a…you get the idea. You are always in a posture and will be so for the rest of your life. What type of posture you are in however, is what we want to focus on here. Standing and seated are the two most common ones, so to get the most bang for your buck we will address these. This is important since sitting in the workplace is becoming more and more common.

Here are a few checkpoints that you can review for both standing and seated posture

Standing Posture

  • Think of a string through the crown of your head pulling you up tall
  • Chin (tucked slightly in), shoulders (pulled slightly back), hips and ankles all in line with each other
  • Not allowing pelvis to tilt forward excessively
  • Avoid weight shifting always over one hip
  • Do not allow knees to collapse in
  • Feet pointing straight ahead
  • Constantly changing positions
  • Do not be afraid to stagger your stance
  • Put one foot up
  • Squat down and up a few times

Seated Posture

  • Think of a string through the crown of your head pulling you up tall
  • Chin (tucked slightly in) and shoulders (pulled slightly back)
  • Position desk so that you do not hike shoulders when typing
  • Constantly vary the height of chair with hips always above knees
  • Or better yet use a Swiss Ball that is over inflated
  • Keep center of computer screen straight ahead in vision
  • Make sure that you can see the screen without moving head forward or having to squint
  • Constantly changing positions
  • Bend or straighten your knees
  • Use a closer or wider stance
