Sitting is something we don’t do very well. We sit balanced on one hip bone, then we shift to the other. Or we cross our legs. Here is what a good sitting posture is like.
1 You should sit evenly on both sit bones with your thigh supported by the seat of the chair
2 You should be able to place both feet flat on the floor
3 Your knees should be slightly apart in order to support your weight, and your feet should be under your knees
4 The back support should be a high as your shoulder blades.
Here is an workplace assessment you might light to try.
Sometimes I see people sitting at work. I often see them looking like the person with the red circle rather than the blue. Long term this puts pressure on your lower back and neck. It only takes a few minutes to adjust your chair and it can have many years of benefit to your whole body.
