Choosing the Right Seating for You

Over the years I've gain more than a few pounds. Guess it happens to most everyone.

And every year, as my body wears down more and more and I get new aches and pains, I think more about comfort than anything else. I can remember when my Mom would buy the ugliest of shoes merely because they were comfortable. I thought she was insane. Now I see myself doing the same thing.

So as our bodies broaden and become heavier, the force of gravity takes a bigger toll. We're heavier and we're spreading out.

So look for seating in your home that is comfortable for your body type. If you're a larger body type, you're not likely to be comfortable on a hardwood bench. On the other hand, if you have a bad back, you're not likely to feel adequately supported on an overly soft sofa.
