Have you considered working from home?  If so, I thought I would share some rules over the next few weeks from the Real Simple Magazine  article The 5 Rules of Working From Home by Amanda Armstrong.

Rule #2 -- Set Up an Ideal Office Layout

"The most crucial factor in creating a work-friendly environment is an ergonomic and streamlined space. When you sit down at your desk facing your computer, you should:

    * Angle your pelvis so that it's slightly open, at 100 to 110 degrees.
    * Bend your elbows at 90 to 110 degrees, so that your hands rest comfortably on the desktop and your upper arms are in line with your torso.
    * Place your feet flat on the floor.
    * Position your head above your hips and look straight ahead, without craning or straining your neck.
    * Have no more than a fist's space between the back of your knees and the seat of your chair.
    * Keep your wrists straight when using the keyboard or the mouse."
