In the digital, hyper-connected age we currently find ourselves in, more and more people are making the bold move into remote working.
Indeed, the digital revolution has not only made working from home feasible, but a productive, efficient, cost-effective means of operating across industries. You needn’t look further than the pandemic to see that this is true.
But alongside the clear-cut benefits of remote working, it is not without pitfalls. As more people seek to set up ideal workspaces from the kitchen or study, issues such as poor posture, backache and joint pain are on the rise. The danger is, the longer we leave to confront these problems, the more they will take their toll on our wellbeing and productivity.
Enter the standing desk: the bold, bright future of remote working.
Taking the stand: the virtues of being vertical
It’s widely accepted nowadays that sitting is the new smoking. It’s therefore not surprising that remote as well as office-based workers in their droves are opting for healthier work choices such as standing while working.
Standing desks will help you thrive in this hyper-connected, tech-driven world by allowing you to work productively while enjoying a wealth of life-long health benefits. Here are the main perks of using a standing desk in the office space:
