Most of you will definitely remember these chairs from one of our favorite shows “All in the Family” with the beloved Edith and the cantankerous Archie. Their chairs are perfect examples of what does not promote wellness!

Here then are five tips to consider in buying or replacing your Archie and Edith chairs.

Ask “What am I sitting on day after day?” Wellness is for every day! Poorly designed or inappropriate furniture has adverse effects resulting in neck pain, back pain, shoulder pain or discomfort and even headaches.

Tip #1: Purchase comfy chairs that envelop with backs high enough to rest their heads.
