When I came home Friday, I found a big box of wine and a bigger box containing my new Balance Ball Chair at the front door. Can you guess which I was more excited about? I opened up the box with my Balance Ball Chair and tackled it like a fun sized IKEA puzzle ;).
This may be the best purchase I’ve made all year. It’s fun, it’s fitness, and I don’t think I’ve ever sat so diligently at a table or desk studying. It’s FANTASTIC. It’s a smart way to keep someone like me in one spot. I just sit there with my laptop open, my books and study materials all laid out, and I sit there bouncing for hours just studying and working...not to mention getting a nice little ab work out.
On top of that, it’s structured in such a way that it is remarkably comfortable, and incredible for your posture. If you’ve been following my posts, you know that I’ve been dealing with some shoulder/neck pain. Physical therapy and acupuncture have helped some, but have mostly just shifted or spread out the pain. Some days the pain is so severe my headaches are searing. While it’s only been a couple days since I’ve had the Balance Ball Chair, I’ve had minimal pain and discomfort in my shoulder/neck area, and no headaches. Before the chair, even on my best days, there was still an annoying soreness. However, I intensified my workout this morning, to progressively get back to my normal pace of working out, and I’m happy to report that the sun is starting to go down and I am still pain free. I swear, it’s the magic of this Balance Ball Chair!
I LOOOOOVVVEEEE it. Seriously, it’s a must have. It even comes with a booklet of exercise moves you can do with the chair. If for no other reason, get it for your posture. So many of us spend so many hours sitting because our work requires us to, which is quite hard on our health in various ways—posture, and restraining us to minimal movement. Bottom line, this chair is a great investment for your health.
I ordered mine from www.gaiam.com, but you can also find it on Amazon.
