Here’s why you need a standing desk if you are working from home

Are you working from home more often now? Find out how a standing desk can help everything from your posture to productivity and more.

Working from home has spiked in popularity since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic. And, for more than one reason. Flexible and hybrid work models allow employees to take care of elderly parents, reduce the costs associated with childcare, and save precious time by bypassing their daily commute to the office. 

At the same time, working from home comes with downsides. For example, trying to focus in a noisy environment may translate into a drop in productivity. Or, you may simply be unable to separate work from leisure. 

But there are also environmental risks. For instance, it may be tempting to work while cuddled up on the couch, when lying in bed, or sitting at a desk that barely fits your needs. These habits can lead to discomfort, lack of productivity, difficulty concentrating, and extreme fatigue – but they can also cause poor posture, pain and aches, and ongoing health problems. 

So, if you are looking to make working from home a long-term lifestyle or career choice, it is important to take the necessary steps to ensure that you are spending most of your time at work in a healthy, ergonomic, and livable environment. And, it all starts with investing in the right tools and furniture, such as a standing desk. 

If you are still sceptical about this option, just think that standing, moving around, taking breaks, and switching workstations can improve your productivity, boost your posture, increase concentration, and promote overall health. In the infographic below, you’ll learn all you need to know about the health benefits of investing in a standing desk for your home office. Let’s get started!
