  • Shoulder relaxed and elbows bent to 90 degrees

    • elbows can be resting on chair rest but make sure shoulders are not shrugged up​

  • Monitor should then be set at eye level

  • Adjust seat height if needed to achieve the first bullet point above

  • Don't let your fee dangle

  • Take breaks, get up and move around
