Monitor Masterpiece

Monitor Masterpiece

Do you ever have trouble getting your computer monitor to sit just like you want it? I mean, sometimes it can tilt too much or too little and if it’s not in the perfect position, the time you spend on your computer can turn into a real nightmare. So, I’m here to save the day with a few tips that will help you create the perfect monitor viewing area for yourself. Let’s get started!

First of all, you should place your monitor right in front of you at an arm’s length distance away. Feel free to move it closer or further away if you need to though. An arm’s length is just an estimate. You also need to pay attention to your monitor’s height. It should be positioned in a way that your head is still balanced comfortably with your shoulders. You shouldn’t have to move your neck forward or backward at all. A good judge to go by is when the top line of text on a Web site is just below your eye height. If your monitor is like that, you should be good to go.

You should also tilt your monitor so it faces your eyes. The monitor screen and your face should be parallel with each other. You can test this by having someone else hold a mirror up to the screen in the center of your viewing area. When you sit in your normal position, you should be able to see your eyes in the mirror. Also, if you have trouble with glares on your monitor, try using blinds, curtains or reduced lighting to avoid them. Everyone’s different when it comes to a comfortable monitor position, but at least you now know some tricks you can try to avoid any further trouble. Have fun creating your very own monitor masterpiece!
