You may spend many hours working in your home office, for this reason it is important that you take into account the location of the items that are on your desk. The computer should occupy the main position on the table and place it in front of you. Try to be able to handle it without turning your neck or trunk. Ideally, the screen should be at least 40cm apart. Also avoid having so many items on your desk, only those that you really need like a notebook, a calendar, and pens.
