Video - How to Sit at Your Computer

Here's a short video reminder of something that I'm guilty of forgetting, how to properly sit in front of a computer. If you're just watching a couple of video clips, curling up on your couch with your laptop is probably fine. But if you're doing some serious work you should definitely heed the advice offered in the video below. I know from experience that posture makes a big difference in how I feel after a couple of hours of writing on my laptop.
