Improve your posture this year

For most Yorkshire individuals, their working job requires them to sit at an office desk for over eight hours per day on average. Because of this, a lot of workers suffer from lower back and neck pain which causes discomfort when they sit and even lay in bed.

At Yorkshire Office Group, our office furniture team understand first-hand how such issues can impact on your life, and that’s because we regularly speak to business employees in the Leeds, Wakefield, Rotherham and Barnsley areas when we install new office furniture.

But how can you reduce pain and improve your health and wellbeing? Well first things first, our office furniture experts recommend companies in the Yorkshire region invest in quality and comfortable office chairs if they require staff to sit for long periods of time. Luckily for businesses in the Wakefield, Leeds and surrounding regions, our head office stocks quality office furniture, including office chairs. We recommend that businesses invest in either 24-hour seating or orthopaedic office chairs for a happy and comfortable employee.

Below are a few benefits that our office furniture team has prepared to sitting upright in your office chair whilst at work:

  • It will get rid of lower back and neck pain
  • If you have a good posture it gives you a stronger core
  • It allows you to breathe better
  • Improves your memory and brain
  • Improves your mood
  • Reduces stress levels
  • Allows you to be more productive

Sitting in an upright position will improve your posture, which in turn can start to benefit almost every element of your life from your health, mood, productivity and even appearance.

Over the years our office furniture team has advised businesses in the Leeds, Wakefield, Rotherham, Barnsley and the surrounding areas on the advantages of sitting properly at work, and investing in quality office chairs for staff.

If you are based in Yorkshire and you are looking for more information on either 24-hour seating or orthopaedic office chairs, or any of our office furniture including office desks and storage, please do not hesitate to contact our Wakefield-based team on 01924 88 88 00.
