Course overview

Whether you love your job or not, you’ll likely have to sit at your desk for 8 hours a day (or maybe more). Sitting in one position for extended periods of time can have harmful effects on your body, so you’ll need to make sure your workstation is set up correctly.

There are easy ways to achieve this — simple things that you probably haven’t thought about. And, since people have varying heights and body types and therefore different requirements, there shouldn’t be a ‘standard’ setup.
