    If Your Job Involves Sitting All Day, You May Want These 32 Products

    Back pain, wrist pain,'s really time to upgrade your sitting space.

    1. An anti-fatigue comfort mat that'll help relieve foot, knee, and back pain while you're using your standing desk. When you need a good stretch (or two!) or a change of pace, get up and stand on this!

    2. A leak-proof and time-marked water bottle to keep by you because I know you forget to drink water while you're sitting there all day. The time marker will conveniently remind you when to take another sip and keep you hydrated.

    3. An orthopedic pain relief seat cushion for helping with tailbone pain, sciatica, leg and lower back pain, and encouraging better posture (I know you're guilty of slumping). It's made with memory foam too so it'll mold itself to the shape of your bottom!

    4. A lap desk to beat all lap desks. It has a built-in mouse pad, wrist pad, and a phone/tablet holder so wherever you are in the house, whether it's your couch, in bed, or at the kitchen table, your productivity levels will stay top-notch!

    5. A mobile phone holder so you have a convenient place to prop up your phone, and it'll always be within arm's reach. You won't have to hunt down where it went or lose it among your desk clutter. Plus, tell me that isn't the cutest darn alpaca you've ever seen in your life. It'll make you smile every time you reach for your phone (which is probably 100 times a day, which means 100 smiles to brighten your cold, unfeeling heart!).

    6. A cool sitting ball that'll not only help relieve back pain but also engage your abs and core, promote good posture, and help you stretch. This is the easiest way to work out while sitting, I daresay!

A pair of elegant blue-light-blocking glasses so if you typically sit there staring at screens for hours, you'll be less likely to end the day with a blaring headache, strained eyes, and exhaustion. These will help protect your eyes and your mood, and they're nice enough to wear outside too.

    12. And if that headache creeps up anyway, this roll-on migraine relief stick you'll cry over (and then smile). Loaded with therapeutic essential oils like peppermint and spearmint, this will help ease those headaches — they're not about to ruin your day, no way!

    13. An owl eyeglasses holder to hold those blue light glasses so you don't end up saying "Where'd my glasses go?" a hundred times a day. This adorable buddy will wear your glasses for you and keep them nice and safe owl day.
