It’s a running gag in television shows and movies —
Dad’s ugly recliner
It often has seen better days, no longer fitting in with Mom’s decorating updates inspired by HGTV. And when Dad sees it, Dad sits in it. And stays.
Oh, the hilarity that the average sitcom has mined from that age-old dynamic. It’s funny ’cause it’s true.
If you remember that chair–or, more tragically, still have that chair sitting in your home and rue the day–perhaps this recliner will help you realize…
It could be a lot worse.

I have seen a lot of articles of late on how to achieve the desired posture while sitting at my desk.
I didn’t use to have to worry about this kind of thing.
The folks who requisitioned my office furniture did.
But I home office — like more and more workers out there — so now the ergonomics of our home office space is up to us.
You can spend a lot of money on desks and chairs and ‘strategery’ your layout, but some spine czars say simple things like putting a pillow behind your back can make a big difference.
My favorite piece of advice?
Put a book on your head. Your body automatically aligns itself to maintain balance. I’ve tried this one, and it works — on me, a little too well.
You see, my head is really flat. I can slump and the book stays.
(That’s why I like this method so much.)
