Work shouldn’t actually hurt, right?  Here are some easy ways to truly Work Smarter, and more comfortably.

If your body hurts after a long day at work, ignoring that could lead to a work-related injury.  Believe it or not, desk jobs, more often than physical jobs, pose health problems.

So, have you ever tried “The 90-90-90 Rule”?  Make sure you sit with your hips, elbows, and ankles all at 90 degrees.  This keeps your neck and back from hurting.  Or, invest in a desk which can convert from a sitting-oriented surface to a standing workspace.  You’ll feel more energetic, and possibly lose weight, by burning more calories, each day.

Also, “The 20-20-20 Rule” should be implemented every 20 minutesWalk 20 feet in 20 seconds to keep yourself moving, your body warmed and active.

Finally, “Eyes Not Always on the Prize”Look away from your computer often – and make sure your computer isn’t in front of a window.  This can cause your eyes to become abnormally fatigued, overly tired.  Positioning your desk directly under light also causes serious eye strain.
