Should I use a headset to improve workplace ergonomics?

Use a headset while talking on the telephone.

Many jobs require people to talk on the phone as they are performing various tasks, such as writing or typing. This typically leads to poor posture as the phone is being held between the head and neck. Surely, you know the literal pain in your neck that hours on the phone can cause! Using a head set with your phone will keep your hands free while still allowing you to practice healthy spinal alignment and prevent neck pain and strain.
