Reducing Pain and Cardiovascular Strain With Zero Gravity Chairs

Reducing Pain and Cardiovascular Strain With Zero Gravity Chairs

In the 21st century, we spend much of our lives sitting down. To reduce back pain, discomfort, and improve posture, it’s best that you spend money on a good office chair. There are record numbers of people taking trips to the doctor’s office to get referred to a neck and back pain specialist, and a lot of this is caused by the fact we’re using smartphones and computers. After a cursory Google search, most people recommend expensive Herman Miller chairs that cost well over $1,500. I’ve searched the web high and low for information on the most comfortable chairs available.

We’ve already reached epidemic levels with obesity and circulatory issues. In a couple of decades, people will start having cardiovascular issues en masse if something doesn’t change soon. One company that provides a less expensive alternative is Zero Gravity Chairs, who claim that their chairs reduce pressure on the spine, improve circulation, and reduce heart strain. I had the chance to talk with the founder of the company, John, about his invention, “We’ve essentially found the perfect chair for fixing a variety of everyday issues, or at least lessening the impact of sitting down for long periods of time on your health.”

John continued, “There are negative consequences on your health when you sit down for many hours per day, not limited to spinal pain and cardiovascular issues. One common suggestion from doctors is to take a break every hour for fifteen minutes and walk around your home or workplace. If you’re not a home worker, it can be a bit difficult to find out how to fit these sorts of instructions into your schedule. There are many medical studies out there that show that sitting for eight hours per day (or in some trials, even less) can greatly increase your mortality rate.”

Zero Gravity Chairs attempts to fix this problem by redesigning the office chair from the ground up. They not only have a selection of different productivity chairs on their shop, but also lounge chairs and outdoor chairs for when you want to kick back and relax without having to worry about the impact of sitting on your health. I tried out their product line, and I was really happy with the results. I have chronic back and neck pain, mostly because I spend most of my time writing content online, and I noticed an immediate improvement in my pain.

If you’re looking for a quality office chair, you could always spend over a thousand dollars, or you could go for something a lot less expensive. The choice, of course, is up to you. We encourage all of our readers to be diligent about finding multiple reviews before deciding on any product. It really pays off to be a wise consumer. Don’t let marketing trick you! These chairs are high-quality, and all it takes is to look at their Amazon and Ebay reviews, and you’ll see the results that people have gotten from using them. In my opinion, it’s a pretty incredible chair.

Water Damage Sydney Review by myself – David Smith.

Water Damage Sydney Review by myself – David Smith.

Water damage is a nightmare from hell! Normally, there would be a guest post today, but I’ve decided to add my own review into the mix for once. Hi, I’m David Smith, the owner of this blog and the current editor of the Australian Association of Household Reviews. After experiencing some water damage issues as my home in Sydney, I solicited the services of Water Damage Sydney, a highly-recommended local expert in repairing water damage in the home in the Sydney metro area. After the lower half of my house was utterly devastated from a burst pipe, I called around to local providers of repair and recovery services in an absolute panic.

Time is the most important factor with water problems

Most of the companies either couldn’t come out anytime soon (and were already booked to the gills) or they simply didn’t appear to care that much about my situation. Some of them even had the nerve to be patronizing and quoted me exorbitant rates! I decided to go online and read reviews, and I finally did find the aforementioned company, and they were worth dealing with. They immediately dispatched someone to help me get control of the situation. After stripping the carpets and upholstery from the home, they quickly replaced everything with the identical brands.

They continued deep-cleaning the home and disinfecting anything, removing any potential materials which could have been contaminated or soaked. They mentioned to me that they’d have to remove a lot of the building material because it was now susceptible to black mold and other forms of mold, and of course, I had to agree. All in all, they handled the situation with immediacy and with complete expertise, and you could tell that they were taking everything very seriously and were being very thorough with protecting my home against further damage. They even helped me book a trustworthy local plumber to everything fixed in regards to the pipe situation.

Within just a couple of days, the home was completely disinfected and mopped up, and everything was replaced the day after that. Absolutely stellar service, five out of five stars. If any of my readers in the local area ever have any unexpected, nightmarish issues with water damage, I highly recommend this company. They handled everything with the highest level of expertise, efficacy, and care. Really a wonderful company with friendly, sympathetic technicians who were knowledgeable and fully insured and certified to work in a variety of different situations.

The job was extremely well done

Once again, it is unusual for me to do reviews on here, as I usually prefer featuring guest posts from our readers who are courageous enough to use their writing skills, but I decided to go ahead and share one of my own experiences. Thank you all for visiting our blog, and don’t forget to come to your local association meetings where you can meet businesses that have exceeded our specifications. We’ve listed all of the best businesses in a variety of different industries and cities on our website for your consideration.

John Benthams Review on Sydney Interiors

I’d never given much thought to advanced office floor planning and interior design. To tell you the truth, this is something I overlooked to the chagrin of other people in my industry and career, who were always ranting to me about the next generation of office design, efficiency, and office metrics. After doing some more research online about the effects of modern poorly-designed office working environments, I’d realized I’d made a terrible mistake, and as a result, my business was suffering where it could have been succeeding otherwise. This led me to Office Fitouts Sydney.

This company provides an amazing, full-featured service where they can help you source the best possible shop fitouts for your office location. Everything from cubicles to sound-proofed executive mini offices can be sourced from their company for prices much lower than if you bought them direct without having connections in the interior design industry. Their expert knowledge was a boon to me during the most hectic time of the year, which was right before the Christmas business surge when everyone’s working long hours and drinking as much coffee as possible to stay awake before the break for the seasonal break.

Office FItouts SYdney

They made the process entirely simple and kept me in the loop throughout the whole thing. I can be a bit of a control freak, so it made me more comfortable that they included me in the process of optimizing our office space. We’ve noticed a massive increase following their optimization of our office, and now, workers do not complain about noise levels or bumping in to each other between trips to the bathroom or water cooler. Really just world-class work for prices that were well within our budget.

If you’re an office manager running a small business or a larger corporate enterprise in the city, I cannot recommend this company enough. They were truly tremendous throughout the whole process and ensured that I understood every aspect of their vision. They worked overtime to preserve our brand image and address any concerns we had about the whole thing. Really exemplary service, expert knowledge, and friendly technicians who ensured everything was installed correctly and no questions went unanswered. They accommodated our hectic holiday schedule and got everything done over Christmas while our entire office was on break with family.
