Keeping your head up

While sitting and working make sure that you are not straining forward. Align your neck and head right above your shoulders. This will eventually cause less stress on your back.

Your mouse Position

Your shoulder, arm or wrist should not get over stretched while you are working. It should be placed just close to your keyboard; the ideal position where you would not have to stretch and feel pain at your back.

Pick Your Chair

Your chair would be the one that will give you best lumbar or back support and will not stress your spine whenever you get up. So, be a bit choosy with your chair.
