If you're like me you've never sat normally in a chair. I would constantly be squatting at the dining room table when eating breakfast as a kid, sitting crossed-legged in my desk chair while at work, and rolled into a ball of limbs when watching TV on the sofa. I always just took this as a weird personal quirk until I found out that it might be due to my ADHD.

People with ADHD have a reputation of fidgeting and not being able to sit still. Typical chairs and seats just won't cut it for someone with a neurodivergent mind, but thankfully in design, we've come a long way to come up with multiple ways to sit stylishly when you can't sit still.
