I've had back problems for as long as I can remember. So much so that I had to visit countless chiropractors over the years, and have tried tons of things to improve my posture. Slouching at my desk is often the culprit behind my back aches, but simply not slouching is easier said than done! While sitting down all day can be painful and uncomfortable, it's often unavoidable. So, recently I've been focusing on finding ways to make sitting at a desk more comfortable.

Many of us spend 40 hours a week at our desks, and even more time on our computers at home. Aside from posture issues, our work environments can contribute to other surprising ailments as well. Spending so much time on the computer and on my phone has actually caused me to develop carpal tunnel, which makes typing hurt from time to time. My eyes are also super sensitive, and staring at bright screens only makes them worse, so I've started wearing glasses that block blue light to protect them.

If you're also experiencing discomfort from sitting at your desk, making small additions to your workspace — like standing desks, the right chair, or even a laptop stand — can help make your desk feel like a place you want to be.
