Benefits of an ergonomic office chair

In my last post about home offices I talked about making the environment more healthy and that included a new office chair. I’m currently using a redundant pine dinning table chair, which is great for posture but not after 5 hours! You get an awfully numb bum and a sore back.  Ideally I’d like a great big arm chair to curl up in, surrounded by scatter cushions whilst receiving a foot massage. But realistically this isn’t going to sit under the desk well!

My #homeoffice is a great space it just lacks light, comfort and inspiration!

When I put the question out there to my small business chums I expected to see a flurry of people sending me links to their favourite office chairs BUT surprisingly many told me they stand. STAND! Standing for 5 hours! Apparently its a great way to be healthy and you are much more productive?! I can’t see it myself! Do you sit or stand in your home office?

What I really need is an ergonomic office chair. Designed to provide us desk sitters with maximum comfort and support.  Here’s a geeky fact for you ergonomic is a combination of two Greek words – ergo meaning work and nomos meaning natural laws. These chairs are designed to enhance both the physical and mental capabilities whilst sitting for hours upon said chair.  Ergonomic chairs improve your posture diminishing stress caused to the back and in turn back pain. Pain free backs lead to improved productivity which means happy Joanne so get me an ergonomic chair stat!

An ergonomic chair doesn’t have to break the bank either, with a style to suit every budget from luscious leather to high quality mesh some designed to support the lower back and some that tilt to the perfect angle for you.  The only real issue is do they come in pretty colours or just black?!!?!

Do tweet me @CharlieMoos a photo of your office chair and maybe your smiley face in it!
