I just got a stand to set my laptop on while it’s on my desk and connected to my other monitor. The user’s guide had two helpful ergonomics tips in it:
- Center your external keyboard with your screen.
- Put your screen at eye level and arm distance.
The idea of putting your monitor at arm distance was new to me, and is already proving incredibly helpful. First, it’s probably better on my eyes. Second, I find that I simply enjoy using my computer more when my monitor is farther away.
That’s a simple change that I’ve found to have significant results.
