Ergonomics is the science of adjusting your work environment to fit your body and to make it as comfortable as possible.
Choosing computer furniture that is ergonomically designed is extremely important for your health.
If you are unable to sit comfortably with your wrists in a neutral position, you should pick a different computer desk.
Listed below are some tips that are recommended to help you organize your desk and enable you to work comfortably:
Organize your desktop so that items that you use frequently are closer to you for easy access.
Avoid cluttering under your computer desk so as to be able to comfortably accommodate your legs and allow for stretching.
If you have a desk lamp, you should position it so that it puts light on your documents without causing problems with glare on your computer screen or affecting your eyes.
If you are right-handed, place the phone to your left and if you are left-handed, place the phone to your right.
Use a document holder to secure the document that you are reading from while typing. This will result in more desktop space and will also be particularly useful for you to be able to re-focus when looking back from the screen to your document.
Having an ergonomically designed work area is so very important since it will help to reduce fatigue and other health-related problems that can occur if you use the wrong computer desk.
