Sitting posture

Sitting posture

Unless we are involved in a labour intensive job, for most of us we will spend a lot of time in sitting. This might include sitting to commute to work, sitting at work in an office or sitting down to have a meal. As such, having good sitting posture is important to prevent chronic joint and muscle injuries.

Following are a few tips on how to sit correctly:

  1. Sit up with your back straight and your shoulders back
  2. Rest your back against the back of the chair
  3. Distribute your body weight evenly on both hips
  4. Bend your knees at a right angle
  5. Keep your feet flat on the floor
