  1. The advantages and disadvantages of energy drinks

    Posted on

    Many of us adults require an instant boost of energy during the day. This can be during the early mornings or even in the middle of the day. Students hard at work pulling all-nighters may need energy that lasts for the next 4 hours to function. Yawning and having a pile of paperwork to check needs significant energy levels too.

    How to pick the best work from home chair

    Things to consider when choosing a work from home chair

    One of the most important aspects of having a home office is to have a comfortable, supportive chair where you can work comfortably for hours at a time. A comfortable work from home chair will allow you to focus more while you're working, while also providing the support your body needs while seated for long periods of time.

    If you have the space, then consider more than just one seat for your needs whilst working all day long. It can be better for our health to not stay in one position all day long, but to have the flexibility to move around when possible. Perhaps you have enough space to walk around whilst talking on the phone or even room for a treadmill to walk and talk. For less taxing work and research, you may wish for a comfier seat, such as a small sofa if room allows, or a comfortable sofa style chair in the corner.  An adjustable standing desk is also a great investment.

    But, when it comes to knuckling down with the task at hand, meeting deadlines and concentrating, nothing is better than a supportive office chair that doesn’t break your back as you work. Your work from home chair will need to enable you to work productively and support your physical health at the same time.

    So, forget about those back-breaking chairs and learn how to pick a chair that will satisfy your work from home needs and ensure your health also. In this blog post, we will explore how to pick the best work from home chair for your home office desk. We’ll also explore exactly why the wrong type of office chair can be so detrimental to your physical and mental health.
