Things to consider to ensure comfortable reading

To read comfortably, two factors are essential: posture and lighting.


When reading, your body should be in a neutral alignment. It means that your head, neck, and spine should be aligned in a comfortable and good way for your body. If you try to re

ad with improper posture, your neck and back muscles will be strained. And you will find yourself taking frequent breaks from reading as a result.

You need to get a book holder and a Body support pillow of some kind to read in an ergonomic posture.


The illumination should be bright enough to make out the words on the page; however, it should not strain your eyes. Bright direct sunlight is not good for you as it creates shadows that may cause strain on the eyes.
