If you’re part of the ever-growing crowd that works from home, you know how easy it is to fall into the trap of spending your days on the couch, hunched over a laptop. And while a cushy sofa certainly sounds like a comfortable place to spend your 9-to-5, it won't do your lower back or joints any favors after a while—so investing in an office chair that’s built to offer both support and comfort is one of the best investments that you can make.

But there are a lot of choices out there when it comes to office chairs, so we’ve pulled together a list of the best-selling models on Amazon (only one from each brand) with the best user ratings (at least 700 customer reviews). Check them out below.

1. Boss Products Perfect Posture Office Chair (4.3 stars); $81

One of the best-selling office chairs on Amazon.

Sitting all day can cause poor circulation, but this chair's curved waterfall seat helps combat that by promoting healthy blood flow to the legs, according to the company. Coupled with its lumbar support and adjustable armrests, this chair is built for comfort when working for long stretches.

In October 2019, Reviews.org chose five lucky couch potatoes for its “Disney+ Dream Job,” a position that paid people $1000 and gave them a year-long Disney+ subscription to watch 30 Disney programs in 30 days.

Now, the technology review site is accepting applicants for a similar (albeit less time-consuming) role: 10 people will receive a $200 Visa gift card and a free year of Disney+ to watch one single Disney film. Since most Disney movies are around 90 minutes long, your one-time wage works out to about $133 per hour.

To enter, all you have to do is send an email to giveaways@reviews.org with “Dream Job” in the subject line and your name and the title of your favorite Disney film in the body of the email. Winners will be selected at random, so you don’t have to worry about trying to pick the “right” movie or explaining why you’re the right person for the job. You do, however, have to be at least 18 years old and a U.S. citizen. Submissions will be accepted through Thursday, April 10, and winners will be notified by email on the following Monday, April 13.

While October’s dream job was more about drumming up excitement for Disney+, which was a brand-new platform at the time, this one is all about encouraging social distancing and supporting people through the coronavirus crisis. With Disney+’s wide array of entertainment at your disposal—from National Geographic animal documentaries to animated classics you loved as a kid—you might feel a little less bored while you’re camped out on your couch.

If you want to check out Disney+ for yourself, head here to learn how to get a free seven-day trial.

This 'Practically Impossible' Clear Jigsaw Puzzle Is the Perfect Antidote to Boredom

While looking for relaxing activities to do at home during quarantine, many people have broken out their jigsaw puzzles. But if you prefer your puzzles to be more challenging than relaxing, check out this one from ExpressItBest, which is available on Amazon for $22. The puzzle for adults consists of 150 clear pieces, and it takes a lot of brain power to put it together.

Every .75-inch piece in this set is perfectly transparent, which means the only clues you have as to what goes where are the outlines. The makers call the "practically impossible" brainteaser "our hardest puzzle for the most hardcore dissectologist." It's so difficult that ExpressItBest gives away one free custom puzzle a week to someone who posts a picture of the completed puzzle with the hashtag #Puzzibility on social media.

If you succeed in solving it, you won't get a full-color photograph or a soothing landscape to display on your coffee table. Instead, you'll have a 10-by-12-inch clear rectangle and the satisfaction of conquering the near-impossible.

If this one still looks too easy for you, the wooden fractal puzzle, the infinite galaxy puzzle, and the 1000 color puzzle on this list may pose more of a challenge.
