Change The Way You Sit With @backjoy

 Now that school is starting back up, there are so many places you will have to be.  Did you know that we all could use a bit of help in sitting to help out backs out?  Yep!  I have had the chance to review a product from BackJoy and I am going to try and tell you a bit about it now... 
As a blogger, you know that I am in front of a computer, but I also do other things that puts me sitting down as well... (Driving here there and everywhere... not to mention watching television and / or reading)  With others, you could use it from a desk job to a student... from studying to driving...  So that is an extra plus with the BackJoy... Not only does it help with your back and your posture, it is easy to carry wherever you need it... 

I think that a student would enjoy using it when they are doing their homework and studying...
It is lightweight and easy to carry, so you can use it while driving to the library, carry it in to use while studying and then use it again at home or a friends house to relax, unwind and watch TV.   
(Have you ever crammed for an exam in college sitting in those oh so NOT comfortable library chairs?)  



FROM THE BACKJOY WEBSITE: 



Maintain your vitality by sitting with BackJoy Posture+. 

Its patented design encourages optimal posture and engages core muscles so you can sit more comfortably, and correctly, to get more out of life.


Posture+ is not a simple cushion.  It contains APS™ Technology and Advanced Core Materials™.  It was designed so you can automatically sit with optimal sitting posture, anytime, anywhere.  And with the impact absorbing, all-conditions skin you can sit from the office chair to a rock hard surface with greater comfort, longer.  Here is how it works:
1) Our patented Applied Postural Science (APS™) corrects your posture
You know that you are supposed to sit better, but it's hard. Our APS Technology automatically tilts, cups, and floats your pelvis upright so you can find your most balanced and comfortable posture.   
2) Posture+ naturally maintains your posture while you sit
You move when you sit – so Posture+ moves with you - freeing your pelvis to actively stabilize your spine.  It automatically adapts to your movements to provide constant strain free comfort andoptimal posture; and you won’t have to even think about it.
3) BackJoy engages your core muscles
You know how important your core is, but when you sit your core is not engaged. Posture+ dynamically supports your pelvic floor to engage your core. With natural balance and support, you will feel comfortable, stronger and less fatigued after sitting for long periods of time.




I will tell you , when I first tried to use it, I think I was making it a bit difficult than it needed to be.
When my BackJoy arrived, it first reminded me of a turtle shell.  You know, a rounded cup/bowl of sorts...   It is plastic and soft, yet hard...  I know, hard to imagine... It was hard as in that is would supply support for you to use it when sitting... But it was soft enough to provide comfort.  No.. Stop right there!  It isn't a donut or anything, but rather a way to sit IN it to provide the proper way to sit.
Let's just be honest here... (as the video says) when you sit... your butt flattens out (and spreads)  when you sit with the BackJoy, you immediately notice that your butt is sort of puckered up.  I know, sounds funny, but it's like its tight.. .as thought you are squeezing your butt together.  (Sorry for the very detailed information, just really could not think of a better way to describe it.)  
I notice that I do sit a bit straighter with this, as it sort of lifts me that way while sitting... Not that I am doing it on purpose or anything...

Honestly, I think if you (or someone you know) has back issues...
Or if you want to take the preventative measure to NOT have back pain down the road,  I think you need to give BackJoy a look.  At the prices they offer and the different options they have, I think it is a great investment.

  1. I was in a car accident in November and it knocked my back out of whack. Now I use a pillow at work and home to support it. I am thinking this might be a good idea.
