If you sit at a desk for more than two hours per day, you must consider your comfort as an asset. To protect that asset, you must accommodate your comfort but only to a certain extent. You want to be comfortable enough to work and not be distracted by your back hurting or your desk chair being uncomfortable. On the other hand, you don’t want to be so comfortable you are tempted to sit back and daydream or nap.
This becomes very important to consider when it comes to choosing desk chairs. So if you had the choice of a leather office chair or an ergonomic chair for your choice of desk chairs, you should weigh the pros and cons that apply to your particular needs.
Your needs are at this point- comfortable and not-too-comfortable. Let’s talk about the ergonomic chair.
An ergonomic chair is designed to accommodate the human body while in the sitting position. These particular types of desk chairs can bring relief of back pain for many, but to others may actually be uncomfortable or just not to their taste.
Others may find they prefer the leather office chair, and may actually be better for them as long as they don’t get too comfortable and defeat their own purpose. A leather office chair is very easy to sink into, making it easier to relax too much and inducing sleepiness or a daydreaming state.
This decision should be made by the individual for their particular and specific needs.
