Help! My Chair is Broken!
The chair is key to all who work from a desk and even more so if your work is about typing or drawing rather leaning back and relax. Yet, we do not seem to pay due attention to this piece of furniture that is central to our productivity and overall success in whatever we are doing on that desk the whole day. Sometimes it is about thrift. We choose to spend ten hours everyday on an uncomfortable chair in our home offices because we are less than prepared to allocate the resources for the right purchase. Instead we buy what we call a budget chair, which is basically an euphemism for cheap. At other times, money is not the problem. We go buy a chair without really knowing if it has the features we are looking for because we just do not have time to do research. That happens when we wait until the chair is completely wrecked so you are in urgent need of finding a seat to be able to keep doing your job. You can still find a decent chair if you are lucky but if you are not, you could and up with a chair that will disappoint you or pay more than you should because you cfailed to find a good deal.
How to be Proactive
You can avoid the office chair emergency I’ve described above simply by being proactive in shopping for a replacement chair. Chairs are not destroyed in a day. They give signs before they fail. If you are seeing screws fall off and armrests rattle then it is time to prepare for replacing your chair. Start reading reviews and asking friends for ideas on different chair models. Find out which chairs people around are using. See if they like that brand name or model. Researching about ergonomic chairs is no big deal as you will find out once you start gathering information. You should also visit stores and sit on the chairs whenever you can to see if they are really as comfortable as advertised. Before long, you should have identified your favorite ergonomic office chair models. Next, you begin to look for a good deal. That means you check the prices at stores and websites that sell these products. You can also do some research to see if there are certain dates when for price cuts on a specific model or office chairs as a whole. You can find great deals at certain times of the year such as Black Friday. In short, if you decide the model and watch for deals before an emergency arises, there is no reason why you should not get the best chair for the best price.
