Self-care Saturdays – Treat Yourself to a Stand/Sit Desk
Be kind to your joints with a Stand/Sit Desk…
Several years ago when I started a new role at my day job my then new boss always uses a stand/sit setup for her computer. I never opted to go that route until I started having tendonitis in both elbows and the orthopedic highly recommended that I go with a stand/sit desk. Luckily when I approached my boss for this setup she approved immediately. The IT and Maintenance Departments assessed what would work best for my desk and ordered a moveable arm, dual monitor frame and keyboard tray.
I have enjoyed the flexibility of being able to sit and stand throughout the day and boy has it been easier on my knees and lower back as well, with not sitting all day. And my tendonitis has improved as well.
Enjoying the benefits of the stand/sit setup at work, I knew I wanted something similar for my office setup at home. Not having the option of the moveable arm setup I went with the spring riser setup that is placed right on top of your desk. No drilling or hardware is necessary into your desk. There was assembly with the Mount-It! Sit Stand Desk Converter, Ergonomic Height Adjustable Tabletop Standing Desk, Gas Spring Monitor Riser MI-7916, Black Stand and it took me less than 30 minutes to put together.
I highly recommend this type of stand/sit setup for your work office or your home office!
I’d enjoy hearing how your work or home office is setup.
