This blog used to be views on various things. But in all these years, I find it going a whole new direction.
Something which I have loved all the time. It's BOOKS!! So, presenting a whole new saga, of books and a little about them, whatever I can find, write, visualise and imagine...

Writing, Reading and the correct Ergonomic Chair... A match made in heaven!
When I first started
writing, and I mean really, writing, I never realised the importance of having a
good chair. Of course, in schools we always had those wooden chairs and desks,
and in colleges we had chairs with boards attached to them. But, no purpose
was really served.
After I got out of
college and into a workplace, I had a really uncomfortable looking
ergonomic chair. (I used to love the whole idea of a bed, and would hit the bed,
straightaway, after work to rest my back.)
After, this I got into writing from home, as I chose
the ‘work from home’ option.At first, I
thought this was better because I had my bed to hit, which was much closer now.
But then, I decided to
actually invest in a good ergonomic chair, because I noticed my back, giving
away. I have a desk, and next to nothing on it.
I guess, getting a good
ergonomic chair did it for me. I have excellent back and neck rests and good
lumbar support, as well. It supports the lower and upper back, and adjusts superbly
to the curve in my lower back too.
And the arm rests are brilliant.
Because the chair is a wide one, they give enough space to move and, rest both
my arms on the armrests. Sometimes, even on the inside of the chair. It is also
enough to allow me to shift slightly from side to side. And the soft comfortable
material on my chair is also used on the armrests, as well.
The controls of the
chair also allow me to adjust the chair, according to my needs. If there is a
time, I am just sitting in the chair and reading a book, it usually serves
the purpose of letting me sit back, in a well-balanced position. The angle remains
helpful to the change in position.
The best thing is that
it not deeply
contoured or too soft. Oh, and one thing : Always go,
try it out, leave it behind in the store and come back the next day. Try it the
next day and then only, make the purchase.
And do be ready to
spend a little, because it will serve the purpose of being your lifetime
support. Oh, read and write well, too! :)
