How Foam Can Improve Your Life at Home and in the Office

Article provided by The Foam Factory

Foam has been used as a component in many different products, such as toys, swimming floats, packaging, and more. People may be most familiar with mattress foam, or foam in their bedding. Foam mattresses are known for providing a good balance between comfort and support, allowing people to get a good night’s sleep. They are malleable enough to prevent back pain by keeping the spine aligned. They also contort to prevent pressure points that are caused by parts of your body that protrude into your mattress.

Many foam mattress users enjoy the benefits of foam at home, but only some realize that they can enjoy these same benefits in the office. In the office, many employees sit in uncomfortable computer chairs for many hours at a time. Not only does this also cause aches and pains, but it is also unhealthy. Many health experts have written about the negative health effects of prolonged sitting, such as poor posture and disrupted circulation and digestion, which can eventually lead to heart disease.

To combat the negative health effects of sitting in the office, workers should adopt two daily practices. The first is to take regular standing breaks and the second is to use a foam seat cushion for office chairs. The negative effects of sitting are caused by the unhealthy compression that sitting exerts on your body. By giving your body a cushion to distribute your weight more evenly, you can reduce some of this compression. This helps your body circulate blood and digest food even while you’re sitting.

Furthermore, foam seat cushions make working more comfortable. Employees are bothered by a number of distractions throughout the day. Aches and pains caused by sitting in an uncomfortable chair can be another distraction that keeps employees from focusing on work. Having a comfortable foam seat cushion helps keep morale and focus high so that you can focus on the day’s tasks.
