Your chair height should keep your elbows bent at a 90 degree angle while typing. Be sure to keep your mouse and keyboard as close together as possible to prevent any reaching. Your computer monitor should be angled at eye level and about 20 inches away. Consider getting up to walk around a couple of times throughout your day to stretch and keep the blood flowing.

Keep it simple. When it comes to tasks, don’t make it complicated. Tasks that are on your ‘To Do’, keep on your left. Projects that you are currently working on, keep in front of you. Once you have completed those tasks, move them to the right. Hopefully, this will help you stay organized and have a clear view of your work day.
