Healthy Living the Importance of Ergonomics

You're probably familiar with the four pillars of good health: proper diet, exercise, rest, and a positive attitude.

In today's modern lifestyle, another crucial pillar has emerged: maintaining proper posture.

Men, women, and children alike are experiencing significant health issues due to poor posture.

Posture isn't just important while studying or using a laptop; it should be considered in all daily activities.

To address this, I'm launching a new series called Ergonomics.

Ergonomics focuses on studying furniture and equipment to enable more efficient and comfortable work.

In this blog, I'll start with the basics that everyone uses.



We spend approximately one-third of our life sleeping, so it's essential to have the right bed setup.

The bed should be between 16-25 inches high (top of mattress) from the ground, depending on the user's height.

When sitting, the legs should firmly touch the ground.

Side tables should ideally be the same height or lower than the bed, making it easier to access items.

Opt for a mattress that isn't too soft.

Ensure the headboard is curved to provide proper back support, as depicted in the picture.

Side note: It's recommended to avoid a TV in the bedroom.


 The sofa is a favourite spot for many during holidays. But do you pay attention to your posture while sitting on it?

Maintain a 90-degree angle between your thighs and legs. 

The sofa back should be slightly inclined backward.

Ensure your hips touch the sofa backrest. If not, use cushions for padding, as shown in the picture.

If sitting for extended periods, consider using a foot platform, table, or pouffe to elevate your legs.



If you have a TV in the living room, ensure you follow proper posture guidelines similar to those for the sofa.

Next question: where should the TV be placed?



It should be at eye level to keep your neck straight.

The height should be between 45" to 50" from the floor.

Choose a TV size appropriate for the room dimensions.

Consider the overall scale and proportion when selecting furniture.

These are just some basic guidelines to get started and should be adhered to.

In future blogs, I'll delve into increasing efficiency while working from home or studying, along with more ergonomic tips.

I'll also include dos and don'ts to maintain good posture.

I assure you this series will be exciting, so stay tuned for more updates.
