If you are like the vast majority of the British Workforce, most of your working day is spent in a chair, looking at a computer. This is a massive change from what it was 100 to 150 years ago. Back then, most of us would have been on a factory floor or even out in the fields working the land. So there is much to suggest that this radical change to our working lifestyle has had a detrimental effect on our mental and physical health. So just as our tools needed to be the right fit for us in the past, so does the chair that we sit in to do our work.
It’s why, whether you work in an office or from home, you need to have a decent chair such as those the Office Chairs Gloucester based supplier Biz Stationery can provide. Without an upright chair, you will soon start to experience the worst effects of bad posture. Sitting incorrectly at a desk can put undue pressure on parts of your body, such as your back and knees. Your neck is also suspect to change if you have your head constantly craning forward as opposed to being upright.
The other factor is that this is a very sedentary way of working. Previously, our working lives were spent on our feet and constantly moving. The human body is not designed to be static; it has to move. If not, fat will build up, and your heart and lungs will not get the exercise they need and will degrade.
