Home office ideas from SY readers

Nikki ParkinsonLife 13 Comments

Last month I shared the 2015 SY home office space.

It came on the back of a long-overdue tidy up. You’ll be pleased to know that I’ve kept it in a tidy state and in order.

One of the things I mentioned that I needed to address was the issue of my office chair.

Well, I bit the bullet and invested in my back and hip health.

There’s an ergonomic chair store not far from where I live so I popped in there last week, sat on a few chairs and handed over a sizeable chunk of money for a Bamback Saddle Seat.

It’s only day three but I’m getting used to this new way of sitting. Apparently if you ride horses regularly you’ll be fine in the saddle from day one but for the rest of us it takes a while to adjust.

The shape of the seat enables you to maintain a natural spinal position while sitting.

I’ve got the narrow seat as anything wider would prove difficult in a skirt or dress!

What I have noticed already is that my hip flexor muscles do not seize and tighten up like they tend to from sitting for long periods.

I know we’ll become firm friends and my back, shoulders and hips will be very happy.

Anyhoo, enough about me … as promised in last month’s post, I’m sharing below some of the home offices of SY readers. Lots of home office ideas for us all.

  1. Yeehaa, ride it, Nikki! Just jokes. As someone with a bad back, I’m a huge advocate for taking good care of your body especially when sitting in the same spot for long periods of time (like me at work right now).
    So cool seeing other people’s home offices. Can’t wait to get mine set up. Very inspiring! x

  2. Wow the ergonomics of that chair looks very interesting. I will be interested to hear how the chai feels a few months down the track. I love seeing inside everyones space and thank you for sharing mine. V x

  3. There is some lovely office spaces there Nikki ,I do love a good chair and I think that saddle chair would take some time to get used to,glad you got a good one though ,your body will thank you ,have a great weekend Nikki Xx

  4. So many gorgeous inspiring spaces, my little space is pitiful in comparison. Wish I had more space to jazz mine up!

  5. Wow, there’s so many inspiring spaces I love looking at all of them. I think it might be time to consider a new chair, my hips and bum get tight and sore from sitting for so long when I write. Thanks for sharing Nikki x
