The amount of time a laptop computer became part of the everyday professional and personal life is sometimes surprising. 8h+ in front of a computer becomes often a norm.
One's efforts to cope with such a sedentary and non-natural posture vary from relaxing brakes to setting up an entire ergonomic-friendly office. Results are also in a wide range, but it is a proven fact that even minor changes in the way we work can have great benefits on our health. The short distance to a better health should be easy to cover. But is it?
The very human nature
Signs of fatigue and strain caused by bad posture are too many times insufficient incentive to make us take action. We keep on focusing on our work, and it is sometimes too late when we find ourselves "locked" in a painful position that cannot be ignored any longer.
What you have is not what you need
Maybe too often proper ergonomic equipment is either not provided or what is available just doesn't do for the purpose intended to serve. Switching to a work that requires no travel is rarely an option; in these given conditions it is virtually impossible to get the same level of comfort that you can achieve at your own desk.

Resist the temptation to surround yourself with gadgets. One too many and you feel overwhelmed by the extra effort to set them up, let alone use them.
A exceptional ergonomic device is worthless if just gathers dust and never gets used.
