Initially take time to adjust your chair, keyboard tray, and monitor so your posture is aligned in a 90/90/90 positon. When sitting at your work station your knees, waist and elbows should be at 90 degrees. When viewing your monitor you should be looking at the top 1/3 of your screen so your head and neck is not tilted up or down. The monitor should also be located at an arms reach away so you are not having to strain your eyes. Your feet should be flat on the floor. You can improve the ergonomics of your work space by moving your office equipment (telephone, stapler, rescource materials) to an arm length away so you do not have to overreach.
You can also request an evaluation
of your workspace.
