Good posture even helps you breathe more effectively because it allows your respiratory system to work more efficiently.
Unfortunately, many of us do not carry ourselves with the proper posture, especially at work. We slump, lean, or twist while we are at the office, and we may not even realize it. This leads to poor posture and opens us up for health problems over the long term.
Here’s the good news: you can now get office furniture that actually promotes perfect posture! Here are some examples:
Mayline Comfort Executive Chair with Adjustable Arms. This office chair is unique because its seat cushion comes with a suspended tailbone cut-out to take pressure off your back. This luxuriously padded chair also has convenient T-shaped adjustable height arms.
Ergo Mesh Medium Back Task Chair. This product features a contoured airmate mesh back to help maximize comfort as well as perfect your posture. It also has full tension, tilt, and swivel control.
Boss Grey Mid-back Ergonomic Task Chair. This chair can easily adjust to counter height, thus enabling excellent posture even when sitting at raised tables and counters. It also boasts a thickly padded seat, built-in lumbar support, and adjustable height and depth.

Billed as the ultimate in ergonomic design, this chair not only has contoured and padded seats which slide in and out from the chair’s back, but also a neck support to keep your posture perfect. Its stylish mesh back is complemented by its adjustable lumbar support.
