Since the pandemic has struck us and most people are now working from home, many of us have had to allocate a certain space of our homes where we can work productively.
Although buying a desk is probably not the most difficult decision to make, there are still certain things that you would like to have a certain way such as the shape, colour or size of your desk.
What many people don’t think about is whether a desk is good for their health or not. That being said, we would like to introduce you to the concept of a standing desk.
It might seem a bit odd to spend your work day standing instead of sitting, we need to keep in mind that a standing desk is actually the best option when it comes to our long-term health.
Working at a standing desk has been proven to reduce back pain, lower your risk of heart disease, lower your risk of weight gain, lower blood sugar levels, improve your mood, gains energy and boosts your productivity.
Here are our top choices for standing desks.
