Despite having almost a year of figuring out working from home under our belts, staying active while having nowhere to go is still an everyday struggle.
Without the hike to public transportation or your favorite spot to get lunch or coffee, many of us are dependent on walks outside to stretch those legs during the sedentary work day. Obviously, a daily walk is easier said than done during the cold and slushy months when the sun sets inconveniently early.
A standing desk is an easy solution for extended periods of sitting. Though sit-stand desks don’t replace physical movement (here’s your reminder to take a lap around the house), the option to alternate and un-slump your back just feels good. A few are on sale at Wayfair and Amazon as of Jan. 11, ranging from budget-friendly additions to your current desk to full desk replacements.
For those who are serious about their healthy home office, a Flexispot is the desk to get. The EC9 model is electric and transitions between sitting and standing with the press of a button.
An adjustable addition to the desk you’re already using, like this model by Symple Stuff, is a route that doesn’t require so much assembly or whole office rearranging. This smaller workstation switches between sitting and standing with a simple push or pull, similar to a folding table.
