Being able to work anywhere is handy, but it can also cause pain in your body. Put yourself in a better position and avoid muscle strain with these pointers:
At Home – the top of the screen should be at eye level and about an arm’s length away with the keyboard right in front of you so your wrists are fairly straight. Elevate the screen with risers and books and invest in a separate keyboard and mouse.
In a Coffee Shop – Place your laptop on an upward slope like a three-ring binder, which raises the screen but you can still type by keeping your wrists straight.
On an Airplane – Alternate between setting your laptop on the tray table and in your lap every 15 minutes to reduce stress.
