  1. It's well worth making your set-up as adjustable as possible, in offices and at home. I'm well over six foot and my wife is only just over five foot; the same set-up obviously isn't going to work for both of us, nor is it practical to have one workstation each. An adjustable chair and monitor arm is essential for us.

    And if you're one of those who intend to take breaks, then find that they've been sitting at the computer for four hours straight, there are plenty of free programs online that prompt you to take breaks. I can't remember which one I used, I lost it when my computer crashed. I never reinstalled it though, as taking breaks was pretty ingrained by that time. I won't lie, the program probably will get on your nerves, but it really is worth getting into the habit of taking small breaks regularly.
