As someone who spends most of her day on a computer, I know firsthand the toll it can take on your body. Lower back muscle strain? Check. Acute back pain? Oh, yeah. That's why I was stoked to try out the Kensington ErgoSoft Wrist Rest for Slim, Compact Keyboard-Gray. And boy, am I glad I did.

First off, let's talk design. This wrist rest is seriously cute. I know, I know, looks aren't everything, but I'm a sucker for a good aesthetic. The gray vegan leather exterior is chic and modern, and the gel-cushioned interior is oh-so-comfy. Plus, it fits perfectly with my slim keyboard without taking up too much space on my desk.

But let's get to the real reason we're here: the ergonomic benefits. The ErgoSoft Wrist Rest is designed to support proper wrist alignment, which can help alleviate pain in the neck, shoulders, and lower back. As someone who deals with all three of those things, I was skeptical but hopeful. And after a week of using the wrist rest, I can honestly say I've noticed a difference. My lower back nerve pain has improved, and I haven't had any lower back muscle spasms since I started using it.

Now, I know what you're thinking: "Okay, Emily, but what about the cons?" Well, here's the thing: I had a really hard time coming up with any. The only "con" I can think of is that the wrist rest only comes in one color (gray), but that's hardly a deal-breaker.

Bottom line: if you spend a lot of time typing (and let's be real, who doesn't?), the Kensington ErgoSoft Wrist Rest for Slim, Compact Keyboard-Gray is worth the investment. It's cute, comfortable, and most importantly, it can help alleviate pain and discomfort caused by poor posture. Plus, at only $17.99, it's a steal. I give it a solid 9/10.
