On the New York Time’s Ask Well Blog, a user asked:
What’s the best way to avoid a sore back from sitting at a computer all day?
The answer basically was to buy a really expensive office chair. And by really expensive, I mean $1,400.
This advice misses the obvious answer: The best way to avoid a sore back from sitting all day, is to not sit all day.
I have spent long days (and nights) in an expensive office chair and I will admit that they feel pretty nice. But no matter how nice they feel, they keep you on your duff and that increases your risk of developing back pain and other health problems. At Rebel Desk we advocate sitting in moderation. To help from turning moderation into predominance, you may be best served by a chair in which you cannot get too comfy. A cushioned stool for $99 can be a great option to pull up to a standing desk.
With Rebel Desk’s soon-to-be-launched products, you will be able to spend less than $1,400 and actually help you overcome your back pain.
