Sitting all day kills us! Yes, we are vaguely aware of this fact, however, we keep ignoring it. Some might say that sitting all day is worse than getting used to drinking and smoking. People that sit all day are most likely to have a heart disease and there’s a 54% chance that they’ll die due to heart attack. Do you want this to happen to you? Hell, no!
Most of us who work in an office environment spend 5 to 8 hours sitting when doing our daily tasks. We are not saying that you should quit your job; we are here to help you realize that there is an alternative to stay fit, even at work. The practical approach that we suggest is to have a good desk and a good chair that has ergonomic benefits. If you are lucky to work in a place where you can get and maximize the benefits of a standing desk, you should definitely go for it. However, you can still enjoy comfort even if that is not an option and your workplace is more conservative. So, here’s the rundown of the best ergonomic office chairs on the market.

This gorgeous chair definitely defines the meaning of comfort and functionality. It has a self-adjusting reclining mechanism which suits each individual and is perfect for easy operation. The chair’s design uses an adaptation of the laws of physics, to let your body maximize the comfort.

One of Soma’s stunning strengths is its signature design. The chair is tall, has a weird shaped spine and has tension support for the neck and shoulders. It also offers a reliable support for your lower back and provides a supreme comfort experience. At the same time, SomaComfort helps improving your posture. The only drawback here is the chair is not that attractive compared to other office chairs, so you have to decide if you care more about your comfort or its looks.
