Level up your home-office chair!
(SPOT.ph) We don’t mean to sound like your nagging tita, but don’t slouch! Don’t lie, we know you were hunched over just a second ago. Worry not because we're not here to judge but to help you out. If your back hurts every day due to working from home and sitting in a chair that isn’t made for eight hours of meetings and e-mail responses, we suggest investing in a seat cushion. It’s a much easier purchase to make than an office chair—more budget-friendly and space-saving, plus, easier to incorporate into your home office’s current aesthetic. Below, we round up 10 cozy cushions you can shop now to make your current desk chair comfier and better for your posture. They come in many forms, so you’ve got lots to choose from!
Say goodbye to back pain! These cozy chair cushions are perfect for your home office:

Their Seat Cushion and Lumbar Support are worth the investment if you want to make your chair as comfy and supportive as possible. You can get both if your current desk chair hurts both your back and bottom after long periods of sitting, or just choose one depending on what you think you'd need to make your seat more comfortable.

Ergonomic Seat Cushion (P1,800) from FlexiSpot
This orthopedic cushion from FlexiSpot promotes good posture and proper spine alignment—and you only need one small piece, which means it won’t take up too much space on your desk or in your storage closet. The O-shape on the cushion is built to ease pressure on the tailbone with contours made to support your butt and upper thighs and ensure proper weight distribution while you sit.
Backease Pillow (P649.75) Uratex
