We're about two years into this pandemic, and I am among those fortunate enough to still be working from home. Although I've perfected my desk setup, there are still days when I work from bed. Yes, I know it's not great for my posture or my productivity, but it's comfy. Especially now that I have a backrest pillow, fondly known as a "husband" pillow (since this is an outdated term, feel free to call it anything you want—"wife" pillow, "partner" pillow, you get the idea).
Backrest pillows give you the support and comfort of a chair pretty much anywhere. Not only do they make it easier to lounge upright, but they provide armrests, putting you in a great position to type. If you enjoy sitting on the floor, you can make the experience really comfortable with one of these pillows. Or, if you're like me and love to work from bed, this pillow will prop you up nicely. Is this the most ergonomic option? No. Would a chiropractor be super happy with this setup? Probably not. Is working from bed bad for your back? Probably. But since you're probably going to do it anyway, it's better to do it with as much support as possible. Shop a few options below.
