How To Make Chair More Comfortable?

If you’re a working adult, and spend a significant portion of your day sitting down then it’s almost guaranteed you have back or neck pain. This could either be because your office doesn’t have ergonomic chairs, or you simply have bad posture. Regardless, by the end of this article you’ll be armed with all the information you need to make your chair more comfortable.


Before we even think about doing anything to our chair itself, let’s make sure you know the ideal sitting posture first. You should always have your feet flat on the floor or on a footrest, never dangling in the air as this puts undue stress on our muscles, bones, and tendons. Your chair should be at such a height that your knees are either at a 90° angle to your hips, or slightly below that, so that it doesn’t strain your knees or glutes. You should recline back in your chair to 100° to 110° and have your back resting against the backrest (don’t slouch). Last your elbows should be at a 90° angle to your armrest or table to prevent stressing the wrists when typing, and your monitor should be at the same level as your eyes so that you don’t have to look up or down and strain your neck

Back And Neck Support

Chairs with lumbar support are an absolute necessity if you want to work long hours without destroying your back. Unfortunately, though, they’re quite pricey, and even if you’re lucky enough to find cheap back support chairs, the lumbar support isn’t adjustable. So, what’s the fix? Easy, just buy a lumbar support pillow and attach it to your chair. They come at a fraction of the cost of high-end ergonomic chairs and go a long way in making your chair more comfortable. Similarly, a neck support pillow can alleviate a lot of stress off your neck. If you’re thinking of buying one, then you’re in luck! Right now, you can get the premium AndaSeat memory foam Lumbar support pillow and neck pillow on sale for just $69.99 each! An absolute bargain considering both are adjustable and have high end PVC leather covers.

Height Adjustments

Having a chair that doesn’t fit your height can lead to two problems; either your feet dangle above the floor, or you’re so low you feel like you’re sitting on the floor! Luckily both have easy and cheap fixes. If your chairs are too high, then you can put something below your feet like a cardboard box, a step stool, or purchase a footrest. Either way, having your feet on the floor will take stress off your back and core, and make sitting more comfortably. On the other hand, if your chair is on the shorter side, you could buy a seat cushion that’ll prop you higher up and distribute your weight evenly on the seat.

We’re confident that implementing these tips will help you make your chair more comfortable. If, however, you want to save yourself the time and effort, consider buying a chair from AndaSeat, the most comfortable and ergonomic chair in Canada!
