Tips for driving a car with good posture

Get rid of your back and shoulder aches! Bad posture whilst driving can lead to back and shoulder aches, which can be quite problematic for those of us who travel long distances and those of us who already suffer from pains.

Some Tips:

Rearview mirror

  • Adjust your rearview mirror a bit higher than you have it now. This makes you sit up straighter because you often need to look at that mirror. Sitting up straighter = better posture = less pain!

Lumbar support

  • Adjust your lumbar support all the way up. If this doesn’t suffice, you don’t need to spend big money for a commercialised lumbar support. A rolled up towel will do. Place this against the chair behind your lower back. Both this and the chair’s own lumbar support (if your car is fancy enough to have one) helps alleviate the pressure put on your back.

Get closer to the steering wheel

  • Move your chair in a bit closer to the steering wheel. Now you don’t have to slouch to reach the pedals. Ta da!
