Let loose. You may hang both arms naturally down the sides of your body.

Look for and use only the mattress that is perfect for you.
You also need to choose the right pillow. This may help with postural problems resulting from poor sleeping habits and positions.
You may sleep on your side or back. This is helpful for back pain. And, while you sleep on your side, you can place a pillow between your legs.
When seated, always keep the back straight. If you sit for long periods of shifts, you should support the lower back against the end of the chair with a small rolled-up towel.

Always make sure that your car seat and headrest are positioned correctly. This is to promote safe and comfortable driving.

Then, sit deep in the seat. Brace your body with your left foot.
