A Nifty Device to Improve Your Office Posture

How many times have your grandmother and mother said, “Sit up straight?” We all know perfect posture is good for us, but its not always easy or that comfortable for long days at the office. Enter Backjoy, a butt seat we recently discovered that truly saves the day for your spine!

We fell in love with Backjoy at a recent conference in Chicago, and have used them in the office ever since! The plastic seat molded for your butt comfortably tilts your hips upright while sitting on it. It instantly improves your posture and takes the pressure off of your tailbone, making the seat super ideal for long term sitting at the office, on the plane, or in the car.

Whether you are sitting at work, Tweeting at home or watching your favorite trash TV show, you might find yourself hunched over.... maybe even while you read this post. It is difficult to realize your sitting habits until your back starts to hurt, and you have watched a Kardashian marathon. Backjoy keeps your spine in check so you never feel the pain to begin with.The Backjoy is very comfortable, can hold up to 300 pounds and will work in any seat, so don’t fret about eating those Krispy Kreme Donuts for breakfast. There's also a mini version for those under 90 pounds.

The Backjoy is portable and has ties to attach it to your suitcase or inside your GRACESHIP bag, making those long haul flights or weekend road trips a little easier to bare.

The company behind this clever device for your tush also provides numerous other products to help improve your posture while you sleep, stand and kneel. There is a Backjoy pillow, which aligns the head, neck and shoulders. There are foot inserts for the working woman on the go, allowing you to avoid sharp pain in those stilettos. And they also create Kneelers which make your home cleaning and gardening pain free.

We think excellent posture is just one step closer to taking over the world, gracefully. Get your Backjoy on http://backjoy.com/, your back will thank you!

A Couch Potato Workout That Works

With bikini season around the corner, it's almost time to snap back into shape. But burning those calories can often be boring... until now. We've discovered a way to workout and catch up on your favorite television shows at the same time. Introducing, the TV Commercial Workout...

This workout plan is super great. You never know just what you might be doing next. It is also easy because it doesn't require any accessories. No weights, mats or bands. Just you and your television. It also allows a long time to rest and fuel up for the next break.

This is also a good idea to do with your kids. It is fun for them because it is something that is always changing. It's fun for you because it gives you something to do with your children while helping them stay in shape. It is a great after school activity!

And to think we used to hate commercials...
