Practice keeping a water bottle and a small cup at your desk all times.

2. Maintain Proper Posture:

Very important for those who sit before the PC all day long. Improper posture can lead to back pain, vertebrae problems going forward. Sitting awkwardly leads to slouching that gives stress on your joints and they start paining. Such awkward positions while sitting happen due to a lower chair and a higher desk position or even vice versa. Your back position, elbow position, eye level, head position etc. do matter.

Make sure that your knees are at an angle of 90 degrees to the floor. Back should remain perpendicular that means straight with respect to the ground. Elbows should rest on side arms of the chair and your vision at desktop level. Not above or below. Adjust your computer screen accordingly. There should not be the need to bend to view your screen. This is the ideal practice to follow. Try and do this as far as possible. In the beginning, it would seem to be tedious, but once it becomes a habit, you would see that it comes naturally to you.

If you are a smoking addict, then look for other healthy options. Because majority of the times, discussions or meetings happen over a cigarette or drinks as well. These are all harmful habits. Taking this into consideration, many offices ban smoking in their premises. While other few restrict such breaks. They keep a watch on them. Sometimes, the smoking zones are kept at distances so that employee would get bored going so far again and again.

This is a real challenge for the addicts and they need to find a way out. These days nicotine chews are also available as a substitute. Or another method is to be in the company of non smokers. Have a cup of coffee instead. You would forget to light the matchstick. This can make you more productive in your work as it would save lot of your time.

5.Stretch Your Limbs:

Due to continuous sitting, your body tends to become stiff. It also tightens the muscles and lengthens them. Therefore, it becomes necessary to keep them active at all times.

To avoid these effects, get off your place after a while, stand up, stroll down the office passage and also stretch your different muscles. Stretch your hamstring and other muscles. Also stretch your backs, especially the lower back muscles.
