The wellbeing of our body and posture is important, especially as most of us have had a change to our workspace. The way we sit can sometimes be ignored, resulting in back pain as it impacts on our muscles. Sitting in the correct position and sitting properly is a must during this time.

Here are a few ways to sit properly whilst at home:


Sitting down at home, we tend to relax or slouch which can lead to muscles contracting and tightening throughout your body. Sitting in the incorrect position can have a negative impact on your muscles leaving you tight and sore.

  1. Sit with your back straight and pull your shoulders back, your lower back should be touching the back of your chair.
  2. Distribute your body weight evenly on to both hips.
  3. Keep your knees at a right angle and your feet flat on the floor.
  4. Avoid sitting in the same position for more than 30 minutes.
