One ergonomic tip I’ve found helpful that I’ve never seen anywhere is to use a couple of different keyboard layouts. It’s called “repetitive” strain injury, so if you change which motions you’re repeating, by using different keyboard layouts, you’ll be able to use your computer for longer. I personally use a an and that provides a nice contrast with my laptop's keyboard.
