How are you sitting? Have you ever given thought to that? Leaning back in an office chair doesn’t seem like an activity that can be physically harmful, but studies are showing that sitting all day is one of the worst things you can do. We’ve included some helpful tips for getting the most out of your high performance chair. First, find the right chair for your type of work. Then get to know where the controls are and how to use them. Once you’ve done that, you can start fine tuning your support by taking advantage of the customizable comfort found in the following features.
Raising The ‘Bar
Lower back pain is the most common complaint office workers have. Luckily, it’s a pretty easy fix. By manually adjusting a lumbar support or headrest, you can make your chair fit your body like a glove and provide support right where it’s needed.
Pins and needles are no laughing matter. When your legs go to sleep, it means your body’s pressure isn’t being evenly distributed on the seat. Chairs with curved seats and adjustable seat depth can minimize fatigue and reduce pressure points.
Be A Control Freak
HON task chairs have tons of bells and whistles that can be tweaked to create a tailored fit. An advanced tilt control provides support and prevents that awkward feeling of free-falling. Ratchet up or down the tension, and the comfort.
Take An Active Interest
As children, we were all told to sit still, but that’s terrible advice. Changing postures, reclining, and fidgeting all work to keep your muscles engaged and prevent fatigue. Whether you want to roll around, spin around or just lounge around, constant movement throughout the day is the best way to avoid a trip to the chiropractor.
