The one thing about my working place that was most necessary was to
make sure, that the monitor was placed as low as possible.
Before, it was on top of the computer case on the desk,I never understood those ads for computer desk where the monitor's
sitting on top of the computer case or is placed on the shelf above
the desk surface.
afterwardsThat's good to know. I mean, sitting is not that dangerous :)
it was beside the computer case, and since then all aching necks at
work were past. I don't care about height of keyboard that much.
My elbows are a bit below the height of the desk, so my arms rest on
the (rounded) edge of the desk, so the hands actually "fly" above the
keyboard :-) I use the keyboard much more than the mouse, due to
intensive use of keyboard-shortcuts and non-GUI applications.
Interestingly, my girlfriend, who works in a shop, and hardly ever gets
to sit, has a much higher desire for getting massage-treatment than myself.
So, most likely it's not directly the sitting/standing but other factors.Shoes issue?
I once bought a pair of boots(bootie or somehting like that; just the
dressy kind) that was like $29.99 and made in China. I noticed that
my lower back hurt and I returned it and they took it back.
Made in China shoes never work for me and I spend good money on my
shoes (made either in Brazil or Italy)
