How do you guys stay cozy during long gaming sessions?

How do you guys stay cozy? I sit at a desk for school and it is the most uncomfortable thing ever. The edge of the desk digs into my arms. I currently have a super comfy setup at my TV where I have a mini-sofa right up against the TV stand. The TV stand has an opening for VCRs and consoles where I put my feet, and my keyboard sits on my lap. There’s a mini-table right next to me where I put my mouse and my PC in front of that. Thing is, I’m moving to a desktop setup in about a month, and I wanna know if there’s any way I can keep that level of comfort. Any creative and out-of-the-box ideas are welcome!

It's really just about having a comfortable chair and maybe a wrist rest for your keyboard. If the table edge digs into your arm, you just have to adjust your chair arm rests to be as high or higher than the table.

I have a good chair and a somewhat okay posture, so my setup is quite comfortable to me.

Personally I dislike using the heater, so it's always pretty cool in my room. Putting on a nice sweater at that point is pretty comfortable to me.

 

My setup center around a large L shaped desk, with a mousepad wide enough for the mouse and keyboard, so I can shuffle these around as much as I like, so I can change up my position quite a bit.

 

Anyways, the most important parts of a comfy setup is a good desk and chair.

I would suggest to just make sure you have enough free leg room space under the desk and get the best chair you can afford.

 

My desktop setup is very uncomfortable to me.

I have junk under my desk that gets in the way of my legs and feet.  Surge protectors, cords and various plugs.

Plus my desk is not super deep and right up against the wall in a small room.

My chair is also uncomfortable and not really an office type chair.  I use it because I break the office type chairs so fast that I just got tired of having to buy a new one all the time.

Sit ergonomically and you'll be comfortable.

 

Also, stand up and at least walk around for a few minutes once an hour (or more).

I dont think I can stand spending multiple hours in a row for not work. There was a time I was playing tanks all day long, it was a good game still is as I logged in a few weeks ago but I hardly even spent 30 minutes. Just trolled the tank game instant chat for a 3rd strike chat ban. But yeah like its been said lots of breaks or lots of pain relief for the bum bum.

if the edge of the table digs into your arms that means your chair and/or your chairs arm rests are too low or your table is too high.

 

you chair should be set up so that your arms rest on the arm rest comfortably and the table is on the same height.
