Healthy Lifestyle begins with Healthy Furniture

Do you know that, on average, an individual spends up to 9.3 hours a day sitting? That is taken from an infographic by MedicalBillingandCoding.org – Sitting is Killing You. Could you imagine that we’re actually sitting, for most of the time each day, even more than the time spent when we are sleeping?

Putting that to rest, this emphasizes on the importance of getting a good couch or sofa, where you will be resting on at home most of the time, either when enjoying a good show or hanging around your family and friends. According to the online article by Indiana Spine Group ‘Choosing a Couch That Is Good for Your Back’, even slouching for 10 to 20 minutes would ‘result in increased stretching of the spinal ligaments, muscles and spinal discs as well as increased muscle spasm’ which can undeniably cause strain and damage to the muscles in long run. Therefore, picking a sofa or a couch that will keep you ‘healthy’ is crucial towards leading a healthy lifestyle.

As found in article ‘Best Sofa for Back Pain – Here is your Comfy Ergonomic Sofa’ by Best Sofaas.com, there are several points to be considered before buying a sofa/couch for back support, that you may find useful:

  • A recliner will be apt. But make sure that the sofa/couch won’t recline too fast
  • Head rests which are placed comfortably is a great asset.
  • Cushions should be firm and should give support to your back
  • The sofa/couch should be adequately deep so that you can sit comfortably
