Sitting for 5 hours or more strains the whole body. Neck, shoulders, spine, wrists are affected by how we spend our time working. If you’ve been crammed with discomfort or even pain, it’s time to invest in a high-quality office chair.
High-quality office chairs are designed to support your body to endure more prolonged periods in a non-natural posture. In the long run, this is detrimental to your body and spine health.
Finding the best office chair though can be tricky cause everybody is different. Office chairs tend to be one size fits all, but what’s comfortable for one person might not be for another. We’ve compiled the five best ergonomic chairs to help with your posture while working from home.
