Get a Good Chair Now !
Good chair ?
Let me tell you, it’s not useless as you can guess, I had the same thought until my back pain showed up and that pain doesn’t go away until now. From back pain to neck pain, and even butt pain….I sometimes see myself coding for more than 8 hours, and sitting on an inappropriate chair didn’t help.
If your job requires you to sit for long hours, you need a comfortable place to be truly productive. So a good chair is necessary to get that comfort and ease of working.
Coding or any other job sometimes requires a lot of concentration. If you’re in pain, I don’t think you’ll be able to focus 100% on what you’re doing.
Most good office chairs today are designed with ergonomics in mind, which means you will have good posture.
Old to new
Don’t be afraid to trade in your old one for a new one, furniture doesn’t last forever, have the decency to change it, and keep the economy going.
Do I have to spend money on this?
That’s an absolute yes. You will enjoy what you are doing. Most importantly you will not be hurt in the long run.
What’s a good chair ?
I’m not here to market a specific product, but try them for yourself, and see what works for you as long as you feel comfortable with it.
I was inspired by another post, and I think it was necessary to share it with everyone. See this youtube video.
