Ergonomics is designed to give you comfort while you perform a particular work. If you are an IT professional, your work will count long hours of sitting in front of the computer and continuous typing. If you are a professor, your work will be more of standing and walking, usage for writing board. Imagine the amount of microtrauma you are causing to your body by faulty methods in your daily work. But ergonomics plays an amazing role here. If you have a sitting or sedentary job, you need to have enough back support on the chair. If you have standing job, then you need to have insoles so as to prevent occurrence of flat feet. These small changes can be very helpful.
Work hard and make a great living

Posture is the root of all the aches in body. So it is important to always be aware of your posture. The way you are sitting, standing or even simply lying down makes a lot difference in your entire body. A small tip for the same. Consider where you spend most of the time in a day. For example if you are spending most of the time in your workplace, you need to be more aware of the posture you sit or stand in, at your workplace. A slouched sitting posture is prone to cervical pain. Long hours of standing in inappropriate posture is prone to lower limb joint pain and also varicose veins.
