Garrick’s More Ergonomic Workspace

Years ago, I’d have regularly scheduled massage appointments to relieve the stress in my shoulders and upper back. A result of hunching over the laptop all day. Then, I compared the ongoing price of massage to a big external monitor. The monitor was a bargain.

Over the last couple weeks, I’ve been noticing the hunching and shoulder pain returning. I sat up and looked straight at my monitor.

Well – straight over my monitor.

Sitting straight up, my line of sight was right over the top of the monitor.

My next stop was Amazon – where I picked up a Ergotron LX LCD Arm and an adapter.

It took about 20 minutes to setup and – what a difference it makes. It already feels easier to think.

As a fantastic side-effect, it really helps clean off the desk.
