Sitting Comes with a Price
Sitting for long hours without any movement is linked to many long-term health conditions such as chronic back pain, heart disease, diabetes, and obesity. Long office hours are the main culprit behind prolonged sitting. Here are 6 tips for you to make your sitting hours healthier. Follow these tips regularly if you want to stay healthy if you sit at the computer the whole day?
Ask for a raise
If your computer screen is placed directly on the desk, it’s time to ask the management for a raise for your display screen! Screens that are too low lead to neck and backaches. On the other hand. screens placed higher may cause dry eye syndrome.
Get relief from those dry eyes. Choose from a range of lubricating eye drops.
Practice your posture
Maintain the right posture whenever you sit on your desk. Sit with your shoulder back and back straight. Touch your buttocks to the back of your chair. Do not cross your legs or stick them out in front of you.

Make sure to take standing breaks from the sitting position. Try using standing work-stations for this purpose.
Walk and work
Has a brainstorming session scheduled? Try doing all the thinking as you walk. Let go of personal messages and emails: go walk up to your colleague for that important discussion. Walk comfortably by using special acupressure massage slippers.
Take play breaks
