What is the best way to sit in in my office chair?

Poor posture can cause a lot of pain and it is something that many office workers experience throughout their career. Therefore, it's incredibly important to be aware of your posture throughout your working day. Good posture can improve your mood and self-confidence as well as improving your physical health. This is how you should sit in a chair properly:

  • Use the height adjustment feature on the seat so that your feet are flat on the floor and your knees are in line with (or just below) your hips
  • Sit up straight and keep your hips pushed back in the chair
  • Position the back of the seat so that it is at a 100- to 110-degree angle. You should also make sure that your upper and lower back are supported. You can do this by using small pillows or back supports.
  • If you work at a computer screen, make sure you are sitting at least 20 inches away from the screen
  • Relax your shoulders and keep them from rising toward your ears or rounding forward during the day

excellent website, very easy to use, and would definitely recommend Office Furniture Direct. The chair arrived earlier than expected, although it was a present for my son and I had no notification from the company that it had been delivered.

Thank you very much for taking the time to leave such great feedback.

Gentoo Eclipse Plus 2 Chair With Loop Arms

Easy to assemble but not overly comfortable. Cushions are a little hard.

Office Furniture Direct were fast and efficient when dealing with my order. I was unavailable during the first delivery slot given to me, but the advisor quickly changed it to a more suitable time. The delivery men were bang on time also. Couldn't fault any part of my experience. I would definitely use again!

Thank you for the great feedback. It really is fantastic to hear that we were able to be so accomodating with your delivery.
