How to use laptop – good posture practices

by paragarora

I have been developing a back pain lately. Two days vacation at Wayanad with absolutely zero back pain made me realize it was bad working posture. I work on a laptop which adds up to the problem since there are absolutely no zero stress working positions using laptop. Really liked two videos in this context.

First video shows how to maintain a good posture while working in office.

Second video shows how to maintain a good posture when in airport, lounge or coffee shops.

Interestingly, there is one posture which is very relaxing and cause no stress. This involves user lying down on bed with back supported by pillow and knees folded to support laptop. Check the second image below.

Lastly, not to mention a desktop arrangements or buying keyboard and mouse for your laptop and a tilt-able laptop mount is always beneficial for longer term.
