4 Ways To Improve Your Posture At Your Desk – And Why You Need To!

Desk-based working is on the increase in all parts of the world, but the way we work is changing due to the demand and increase in digital based services in the data age.

Although office and call centre based job roles have increased, there has also been a shift to more agile working, such as from home and mobile locations, due to a greater demand for more flexible working. Being sedentary at work has a huge effect on your body and can be heavily influenced by how you setup your environment and workspace.

Injury from poor posture, desk setup and bad habits can cause absence from work and reduce levels of productivity. Symptoms of pain and stiffness in the neck, upper back and shoulders are the most common, but can be avoided by following these four simple steps.
