    1. A simple, comfortable posture corrector that will keep your shoulders back and your back straight! You can even wear it under your clothes.

    2. This document clip so you can just hang your notes and stop having to look down every other line. Seriously, it beats trying to prop the paper up against the screen.

    3. A balance board because you went out of your way to set up your standing desk and now your feet and back hurt from standing all day. Go figure.

    4. Don't have a standing desk, you say? Then try this stand up desk converter so you can ditch the books and adjust the height of your desk at will (and without testing different books by thickness).

    5. A memory foam back cushion for when you're sitting at your desk and missing some much-needed lumbar support.

    6. This angled, adjustable, ventilated laptop holder stand because that kink in your neck is most likely from constantly looking down at your screen. And you don't have to worry about your laptop overheating!

    7. Some desk extension armrests so you can stop hunching forward to lean your arms on your desk. Esp if your chair's armrests prevent ya from getting closer to your desk.

    10. A dual-monitor desk mount to give your eyes and neck a break from straining! (Also, more desk space, ofc.)

    11. This no-slip sitting ball so you can strengthen your core... :) JK, while it will help burn some calories and could tone your core, several reviewers say it can alleviate back pain from slouching!

    12. Or, a kneeling chair because who likes to "sit properly" anyway? It's thick enough for even the boniest of butts, and it's got wheels so you can (somehow) roll around!

    13. But if you're a traditionalist who's into chairs, this memory foam with cooling gel seat cushion that will give your tailbone some TLC and can help relieve lower back pain, the real enemy.

    14. Or if you need a new chair altogether, an ergonomic chair that was specifically designed for spending long hours at your desk! It reclines, swivels, and is adjustable so you can sit with less ache. The back is high, the armrests are padded, and the mesh cushion is soft, thick, and breathable — so you'll be comfy and cool for hours.

    16. This cervical neck pillow so you can support your neck and align your spine when you finally lay down and stop working — because now you can really feel how stiff and sore your neck is.

    17. And a neck hammock — yeah, I know — that hangs from your door knob to help stretch your neck and potentially relieve stress and pain!

    18. An acupressure mat and pillow to reduce muscle tension by just laying on it for, like, 10 to 30 minutes! The acupressure points massage your pressure points to help relieve stress and tight muscles — which is just what ya need after sitting at a desk all day, e'ery day.
