Stand upright, face facing forward, back straight and balance our weight evenly on both feet, always keep our head in line with our spine. For posture when sitting, a good seat for working should have good back support, arm rest and a swivel base. When sitting, we need to keep our knees and hips level and feet flat on the floor. Ideally be able to sit upright with support.
