Sit your way to a productive day

Did you know that you sit more than you sleep?

That’s why you need a quality chair to support your posture throughout the day.

After all, did you know your posture directly affects your productivity at work?

The health benefits of having the correct posture while sitting at a desk have been well documented.

Some of the main examples include improving your breathing, digestion, comfort and even your mood.

Even though these benefits may seem irrelevant for productivity, Dr. Erik Peper from the San Francisco State University has done research to suggest otherwise.

Improved physical and mental health means that you will be more alert and will have more acute concentration. Thus, aiding in productivity and efficiency.

Are you aware that hunching in your seat can even affect the amount of oxygen you consume?

It is suggested that a bad posture could potentially cause you to breath in up to 30% less oxygen when compared to someone who sits upright.

The decreased level of oxygen makes your body susceptible to fatigue, making it more difficult to sustain your energy throughout your day.

Dr. Peper’s research assessed the body’s subjective energy level when hunched over and his findings indicated that incorrect posture and seating can significantly influence your attitude during work hours.
