Arranging your work area – Phone

Phone

Cradling your phone between your ear and shoulder may lead to neck, shoulder, and back discomfort. If you use your phone a lot, try using a headset or positioning your phone so you pick it up with your non-dominant hand. This frees your dominant hand for note-taking.

When not in use, place the phone within easy reach.

Right
Use a headset to free your hands and help you avoid uncomfortable positions.

Wrong!
Do not cradle your phone between your ear and shoulder.

Tips

Talking comfort
Keep your head balanced comfortably over your shoulders when talking on the phone, especially for long periods of time.

Avoid!

Avoid using an attachment for the phone receiver (a rubber or foam "shoulder rest" or "shoulder cradle") if it requires you to bend your neck to the side to cradle your phone between your ear and shoulder, especially for long phone calls.
