If you are like many of the millions across the country, then you spend a good 6-8 hours a day with your face burned into a computer screen and your keister firmly planted in an office chair. Not an ideal way to spend consecutive hours of a day, but we do what we do to make ends meet.
While there isn’t much that we can do to stop your eyes from turning into mini-computer screens, we can help you with your rear-end issues. By that, we mean we can find you a nice office chair that hopefully will offer you comfort as well as support for possible, if not inevitable, back issues that may creep up on you.
If you are working from home, then you know a good office chair will make life much easier. If you are in the office and are lucky enough to get a new office chair, you’ll first be the envy of the office, but you will also have peace of mind knowing that your company cares.
As the COVID pandemic took over lives in the not-so-distant past, many of us had to come up with makeshift home offices. Some of those would include a recliner chair and a laptop. After napping a few hours, you soon noticed a recliner wasn’t going to cut it, so you went to the dining room table. The setup was okay, but not ideal.
An impromptu office desk and dining room chair came next, but that dining room chair proved to be your downfall. It’s everyone’s downfall. Thankfully, we are here to help. Gone are the days of recliners, couches, kitchen stools, and dining room chairs. We are going to gently recommend a few office chairs that should help you with everything office chair-related. From support to comfort, we got your back.
