Avoiding “Blogger Butt” with the BackJoy Posture+

Do you find yourself slouching while you sit? Have you ever experienced back aches and pains while sitting reading your favorite blogs? The good news for you is that BackJoy has just the solution to help you remedy that case of “Blog-Reading Butt!”

As a blogger and full-time IT gal, I spend a lot of time sitting on my butt at the computer. I definitely have suffered a good case of “Blogger Butt“. Last summer, my back felt the strain of poor posture and I was out of commission for a few weeks. Lesson learned, I try to focus more on my posture. (Your mom was right when she told you to sit up straight!)

BackJoy is “a company on a mission to change the way the world sits, sleeps and stands with a few simple solutions”, including the new Posture+. The Posture+ is “a preventative everyday seat enhancement that improves posture and strengthens core muscles in order to help you fight – or prevent – that case of Blogger Butt”.

I got to test out the Posture+ on both my home “desk” (the couch) and my work chair (a standard rolling desk chair). The Posture+ is designed as “one size fits most”, fitting 120-300 pounds. Although I am (finally) on the first half of that 180 pound range, I was a little worried when I first saw the size of it. (My butt is still quite, uh, healthy, so I was worried I wouldn’t sit right on it.) Fears aside, I gave it a try. Guess what? I fit just fine in it and began to feel the effects of the “Applied Postural Science” correcting my posture right away. No more slouching while I blogged or worked. Additionally, the Posture+ engages your core muscles as you sit, so I was working off extra calories just sitting like normal. Win!

Posture+ key benefits include:

•Sit with better posture

•Makes sitting more  comfortable

•Works ANYWHERE – Hard or Soft Seats!

•Completely portable

•Patented design made with durable materials

The portability is definitely another great attribute of the Posture+. It’s lightweight, so you can just grab it by the handle and take it with you on the go. Now, the packaging suggests you could take it with you anywhere including the movie theater, but for now I can’t imagine doing that. 😉 While I like using it at my desk chair, the best place I found to use it is in the car. Long car rides are typically the biggest strain on my back, so I am looking forward to really putting it to the test next time I travel to see the in-laws.

BackJoy Posture+ is available in 6 colors for $39.99 (you can order it here). They are also on Twitter (@backjoy) and Facebook.

I don’t know about you, but I’d sure like my back to look more like the image on the right, so if that means toting around a lightweight foam support, it just might be worth it!
