The Mattress of Your Workplace

Buying a mattress is something we do once every 10 to 20 years. Mattresses and beds are long term purchases that we spend a lot of money on because we spend six or more hours a day on our bed, everyday. An expensive, quality mattress provides good back support, is durable and most of all, comfortable. Spending a little bit more money on a better bed makes sense because of the use we make out of a bed. What many of us look passed is the need for a quality office chair.

Ergonomics emerged over the last couple of decades as a science of the workplace intended to maximize worker productivity and reduce both stress and back pain. The study focuses on minimizing all health risks associated with the office. The main types of product associated with ergonomics are chairs. Ergonomic chairs provide adjustable seat, arm, and back support and positioning to alleviate some of the pains associated with sitting down in an office for 8 hours per day.

The need for a quality office chair is just like the need for a quality mattress. In both situations, we are stationary for 6 to 10 hours and expect the furniture to provide us with good back support and comfort. Even if we are paying $300 more, we must realize that a quality chair can be used for up to 10 years. If we break this down, that is $30/year, a small price to pay for noticeably better posture and several years before having to worry about back pain associated with old age.

We all take a 5-10 minute break every couple of hours because our back hurts. If you are serious about doing work and being as productive as possible at work, then buying an ergonomic chair might be the move for you. In the short-run, it might cost some extra money but in the long-run, you will thank yourself.
