Do pilates and other core strengthening exercises to help you stand taller and maintain a proper posture.
Yoga also does that and emphasizes body awareness and balance.
Test your back and neck posture against a wall or check proper posture illustrations to find any areas you need to work on when standing.
Be more aware of your feet when you’re standing and adjust your weight so it’s distributed evenly across both feet.
... and adjust your workspace accordingly to put less strain on your spine. Ensure you’ve got a chair that supports your back and is ergonomic for your workspace.
Hold your devices properly, straight in front of you or prop it up perpendicular to the table, so you won’t be constantly craning your neck down to stare at them.
Besides your desk, rearview mirror, kitchen counters, pillows and mattresses are also things that influence your posture and need to be kept in mind.
... to play games that require balancing and movement.
Playing any games while standing up is also an alternative, as sitting all day is bad for us.
... to train your body to be in the proper position, with the least amount of strain possible on your supporting muscles. But so a doctor if you have serious posture issues or pain.
Remembering to stand and sit properly is hard work, so thankfully there are apps to help us out.
Use apps that warn you when you’re slouching.
Find the ideal desk height and keep your feet flat on the floor when sitting (the right seat height is level with your knees).
When you spend hours at your desk every day, even the smallest features of your workspace – such as the position of your monitor or the height of your chair– can greatly affect your productivity and even your health.
With a few adjustments you can improve your working environment and keep your desk from killing you.
The “sit-stand desk” is the optimal choice, because you can sit for a portion of the day and stand for the other portion.
Put your monitor high enough to keep your neck straight, set your keyboard position for 90 degree elbows, and your desk height for feet flat on the floor.

I’m sick of lists of habits that are unrealistic for the majority of people. Even worse is when someone says to wake up at 5 am or run 10 kilometers every day and calls it a micro-habit.
This is not one of those lists.
Each micro-habit here takes one minute at most each day or uses a task most people do anyway. None of them will transform or revolutionize your life but they can help you live a little bit better every day and this adds up over time.
