Adults are often trapped in a situation wherein they need to sit for a prolonged period, usually eight hours a day. That is because of the fact that most jobs require them to sit to accomplish paper works, research, and other things. Whether you are in a corporate office, bank, home office, or retail store, the situation is the same one way or the other.
With that in regard, a lot of people experience back, neck, and shoulder pains. Such is not just related to staying seated for long hours but also because we are often unaware of our posture. Fortunately, quality office chairs that recline have been invented to ensure that workers, students, artists, and any person who sits for a lot will not experience such problems. What is better is that reclining chairs offer more benefit than we really know. We have discussed some of them below to give you a clear idea.
Most of the time, we are stressed out with work but we have no choice but to finish every task within the day or we might have over time which will add more to our stress and tiredness. Reclining chairs can help you in this situation since they are comfortable. That means that you can pause for a while and rest your head for a while. It will make you feel as if you are in bed but you will not feel sleepy. As such, your mood will also be improved.
Proper Oxygen Distribution
Whenever you stay in one position for long hours, like sitting, the blood will more likely settle on the lower part of your body. That is because of gravity and absence of movement. That is the reason why you will often feel numbness on your feet and lower back. However, with reclining chairs, you can move around without even standing. Hence, you can put your feet up or stretch your whole body. Since blood circulation is not disturbed, your body will also be supplied with the right amount of oxygen making you think and focus better.
As mentioned earlier, when we sit for long hours, we tend to slouch since we are so accustomed to what we need to accomplish. Most of the time, we are not even aware that we are also flexing our lower back. Improper posture while sitting can lead to pains and at times, can even cause scoliosis. The good thing is that reclining chairs have been designed in a way that they maintain the natural “S” shape structure of our spine. They also have armrests so that your elbows will not be “hanging” at the edge of your table. The headrests are also often designed in a way that the neck will not tilt or bend.
Reclining chairs are obviously more expensive than ordinary office chairs but they have a lot of benefits. If you are a worker, student, or someone who spends time on the computer, investing in one will be a good choice. Likewise, if you are an employer, spending a hefty amount to buy one reclining chair for each of your employees will also ensure that they will become more productive.
