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.
