Are you making this ergonomics mistake?

> Not resting your feet flat on the floor. <--

Why is this a problem? There's only one foot position that will allow your hamstrings, calves, quads, and the small sensitive muscles in your feet to relax.

That position is with your feet on the floor. Any other foot position is going to start a chain reaction in muscle firing that will travel all the way up to your hip.

If putting your feet flat on the floor is not comfortable, then you need to adjust your chair height to make it comfortable. Or get a foot support that works with your set up.

Based on your height, and the height of the work station, you may need to bring your body up, or your work station down.

Many people who discover the importance of this mistake invest in a foot rest that puts their foot in slight extension (toes slightly elevated), as their legs may be too short to match their work station and maintain proper balance with their keyboard, etc.
