Perfect Position For a Body-Ache Free

How you sit, stand, run or walk has everything to do with keeping your body ache-free.

First, keep your arms by your sides at a 90-degree angle while typing. In this manner, you may have to scoot your chair in or out.

Your shoulders should be down and relaxed. If they are scrunched up by your neck, it means that your chair is too low, so adjust your seat accordingly.

Feet should be flat on the ground while you're seated. If both feet can't reach the ground, try getting a footrest or stack up books.

Leaning your back too far back or hunching forward can be bad on your vertebrae. Your lower back should touch the part of your chair where the seat and back meet. If it doesn't, try buying a lumbar support cushion or a small pillow and put it behind your back.

It is also important to take note that your torso from hips to head should be in a straight line.
