Making enough room for textbooks can help create the optimal study space.

Studying can be a pain ... in the neck, back and shoulders. Here are a few tips to create a better study space and avoid poor posture.

• Create a space dedicated to homework and using the computer with enough room for all equipment and frequently used items (avoid excessive twisting/reaching).

• Position monitor at arm’s length away with its top at eye level.

• Ensure proper sitting position: Elbows rest close to your body and are bent at 90 degrees; hips and knees are at 90-degree angle, thighs parallel to the floor; sit all the way back in your chair; wrists are neutral or slightly up; shoulders are relaxed, not hunched or forward; rest feet flat on the ground, or use a foot rest.

• Take stretch breaks every 20 minutes or so.
