We all spend a lot of time sitting. People sit all day at work, then many go home and review social media, surf the web, or play video games in the evenings. And for most of that time, they’re sitting.
That’s a lot of time in a chair.
Sitting All the Time? Get a Good Office Chair
If you’re sitting all the time, you might as well be comfortable.
How do you get a good chair? A lot of people buy generic office chairs from their local office supply store. They generally pay about $150-$200.
Then they’re back at the store again in 18 months when those chairs begin falling apart. That’s not great. You shouldn’t be replacing your chairs every 18-24 months.
There’s a better way.
The Herman Miller Aeron Chair
Buying new chairs every couple years is not a great approach.
It’s much better – for your body, pocketbook and productivity — to invest in a high quality chair, especially if you sit for long periods.
The Herman Miller Aeron chair is one of the highest rated office chairs on the market. There are a lot of qualities that make the Herman Miller Aeron chair so highly-rated among customers.
Let’s have a look.
Herman Miller Aeron chairs are consistently rated for comfort
First and foremost is a single word: comfort. Aeron chairs are constantly praised by office workers for their comfort. Instead of traditional fabric and foam, Aeron’s mesh seating surface conforms to the sitter’s shape, evenly distributes weight to eliminate pressure points and lets air pass thru for cool comfort.
Herman Miller Aeron chairs have a modern style
Many companies prefer Aeron chairs because they have a stylish, professional look. Track provides furniture for the production sets of successful tv shows such as Suits and Designated Survivor, and their props crews like the Aeron chairs because they present a stylish backdrop to their storylines.
Herman Miller Aeron chairs are green-friendly

Herman Miller Aeron chairs are low maintenance
Aeron chairs do not require assembly. The moment you roll it into your workspace you’re ready to start sitting more comfortably. Actually, there is another step: find the settings that work best for you, by focusing on these features:

Herman Miller Aeron chairs are not one product

Important – Get In the Showroom and Try It
Here’s an important starting point. Before you invest in a high-quality chair, try it. If it’s a chair like an Aeron chair, you will have it for a decade, and if you work at a desk, you’ll probably be sitting on it every day.
Make sure it’s for you. Get into a showroom and give it a spin. There are many showrooms in the GTA where the pre-owned price is a fraction of what a new item would cost.
