Bad backs? Transform your home to transform your back health.

Bad backs? Transform your home to transform your back health.

Many of us are working from home now. This means awkward wooden chairs, kitchen table desks and never quite managing to switch off from work - so longer hours into the evening.

What does this all translate to? Bad backs. Tight necks. Hunched shoulders. If this sounds familiar then read on as we are about to change that.

Here are four places you can make a change in your home today. Each switch you make will be one step closer to that pain free nirvana!

Upgrade to a real home office desk

Let’s start with the obvious. Nearly 65 million Americans will experience an episode of back pain at some point in their lives and 16 million adults suffer from chronic back pain. Sitting at a desk all day can be one of the major culprits so it might be the time to switch your current home office desk. It doesn’t have to cost a fortune, you just need to choose the best work desk for your needs. Here are three great options ranging in price:

Finish your home office with the right chair

The right chair is arguably the most important item on this list. Choosing the right office chair can reduce your back pain and improve your overall productivity. Desk chairs are not a one-size-fits-all item so it’s important to find one with adjustable features like chair height. Adequate seat height means that both feet are placed on the ground and your hips are as high as your knees. Here are some options that tick all the boxes:

Up your game after work hours too

You’ll be far more likely to migrate away from your office to the living room if you invest in the right setup there too. Those late night Netflix binge sessions can mean hours sat in the same position. Don’t be punished for allowing yourself some time off. Set yourself up in comfort with a new recliner like the Composer Signature Design Recliner by Ashley Recliner.

Sleep right with a quality mattress

Have you ever thought about how much of your life you sleep? 26 years! Shocking, right? Hence, the importance of finding the right mattress for your needs. A good mattress that will give you quality sleep should provide the right amount of support and comfort. Sleeping on a mattress that doesn’t meet your personal preferences might leave you feeling tired and sore in the morning.

Improving your posture matters too! A great start would be to sleep on your right hand side with your knees bending up slightly. Also, ensure that the gap in between your shoulder, neck and head is filled with a pillow so that your spine and neck remain in a good alignment.
