I guess you are talking about ergonomics while using the computer. If yes, here are important things to remember while in front of the computer: Your eyes should be in straight line with the top edge of your computer screen. Your elbow should not bend while typing on the keyboard and your chair height should be adjusted such that you don't have to bend your arms to type on the keyboard. Your chair's back should in straight line. Don't bend or stoop while using the computer. Your posture should be correct. Take a mini break every 10 minutes and take a macro break every 1 hour by having a walk, etc. Of late there has been a rise in computer-related diseases, we need to prevent it before it affects us.
