Bean Bags - the Future of Furniture

By: Pattrick Jhonson

We live today in what is known as the 'jet age'. Our lives are fast, are work is tedious, our comfort zone is minimal. In a given week we are found to be spending more time at office than at home. 'Home' seems to be a glorified name for a place to rest, before the bugle blows once more and one heads to ones cubicle. We have no clue what harm we're imposing on our bodies due to this lifestyle. A recent survey showed that the youngsters today are more at risk to spondylitis, back and spine problems, head aches, and stress, than their parents or grandparents. It is slightly ironical that the world we created to make life easier for us, has turned around and made it more stressful than we can bear.

Doctors, physicians and trainers world wide have suggested small changes which we can implement to minimize stress and discomfort. These changes range from psychological changes regarding the outlook towards work, to physiological changes, including eating healthier food, wearing comfortable clothes and making our surrounding as comfortable as possible. Doctors now suggest that one invests in furniture which is ergonomic, that is, which follows the body's posture to make our rest and relaxation more restful. This is where beanbags come in.

Bean bags are the absolute opposite of those hard unyielding wooden chairs, sitting on which was an ordeal. Imagine the incalculable harm these chairs have been doing to your body over the years. A bean bag will simply follow your sitting posture or lying posture to accommodate you better. No hard chairs, no back pain.

Bean bags have a variety of use. You'll find it easier to relax on a beanbag with your partner and watch late night movies, cuddle up or go to sleep. Bean bags come in variety of sizes which will accommodate both you and your spouse in one chair. The good news doesn't end here. Bean bags also have added accessories like drink holder or popcorn holder, which can make movie viewing quite an enjoyable experience. If you spill drinks or food on the chair you have, you'd probably stain it for life, but no such problems with beanbags. They are completely washable, so you need not think of ruining the bag hen you're eating popcorn, while sitting on it.

Depending on your taste and your end use you can choose from a variety of bean bags available in the market. You can make your room jolly and colorful with bright colored bean bags or use sober colors to match your personality. You can get a beanbag for just yourself, or you can get a luvbag for your partner and yourself for those times together. You can even find bags suitable for the entire family of 4-5 members.

Bean bags need refilling periodically to maintain their comfort level. You just need to visit the nearest supplies store and get yourself a packet of the pellets which make the bag. They are widely available. If that sounds too much work, spend a little more and get a foofsac which promises durability for a much longer period than regular bean bags.
