When your workstation is ergonomic— comfortable and efficient — you will enjoy your work, feel better, and prevent injuries. It may take a little time to set up your work or study space in a way that works for you. Don't be afraid to try different chairs, adjust your chair height, use stacks of books to adjust your monitor or laptop, and invest in a few good accessories, like a mouse pad with a wrist rest. Use the checklist below to guide you.
