What does good sitting posture mean?

Find a place to sit where you can place your laptop on a table and then,

  • keeping feet flat or rest them on either the floor or a footrest
  • avoiding crossing knees or ankles
  • maintaining a small gap between the back of the knees and the chair
  • positioning knees at the same height or slightly lower than the hips
  • placing ankles in front of the knees
  • relaxing the shoulders
  • keeping the forearms and knees parallel to the floor where possible
  • holding elbows at the sides creating an L-shape in the arms
  • sitting up straight and looking forward without straining the neck
  • keeping the back against the chair, or using a backrest or cushion if there are places where the back does not comfortably meet the chair, especially in the lower back region
