Yes, You Can Sit in an Office Chair Without Dying

Sitting isn’t all bad if done correctly, in the right office chair. Here’s an infographic that shows you how.

We’ve talked a lot about sitting here on the Office Essentials blog, everything from Why Sitting Is So Bad For You to the The Ultimate Guide To Sitting At Your Desk.

Yes, research shows that too much sitting is bad for you, but then again, so is too much standing. The Standing vs. Sitting debate is one that ultimately comes down to your personal preference. The most important things you can do no matter how you choose to work are getting up and moving around frequently, and using ergonomically sound desks and chairs.

I found this infographic from Omnicore that shows you don’t necessarily have to stand for standing.

And don’t forget… we have furniture experts here that can talk to you about the latest ergonomic desks and chairs available to you. We have showrooms in St. Louis and Kansas City where you can test them out, or we can even send you a chair to test in your office. Email us for more information.
