Since it’s almost inevitable that about 80% of people spend at least 8 hours a day sitting this is possibly the most important posture to correct.

To have the correct sitting posture just following these easy steps:

1. Make sure you remove all items from your back pocket before sitting down

2. Push your buttocks right to the back of the chair, this will prevent you slouching

3. Make sure you support the hollowing of your lower back. This can be achieved by either using a lumbar support pillow or simply a small cushion that fits in your lower back. (Make sure that the cushion isn’t too big that it makes you lean forward) www.orthopedicpillowsandmattress.co.za

4. Correct the angles. When sitting it’s all about the ‘90 degrees’ when working at the computer. Your chair should be adjusted to the correct height enabling your knees to form a 90 degree angle. Your desk should be at such a height that when typing comfortably on your computer your elbows form a 90 degree angle.

5. Finally relax your shoulders and make sure your head isn’t protruding forwards, your ears should be in line with your shoulders.
