Whether you work from home or the office – ending your workday with no pain is a herculean task.

Human bodies weren’t designed for technology – and I don’t know about you, but I’m not ready to give up my computer and phone.

The next best thing is making it less stressful on your body. But how do you set up your workspace to optimize posture and alignment? Is it sitting? Is it standing? Is it the super fancy desk chair that you’re hoping you can talk your boss into buying?

In today’s episode, I’m doing everything I can to make ergonomics fun – starting with the history (did you know it was coined by a Polish scholar in 1857?) and ending with the best setup for your body.
