An elevated work station. Amazon
While the science on the body benefits of standing while working is light, insight into the health risks of sitting all day is not. Being able to stretch, periodically move your joints around, and change position while still being able to work is beneficial to your health.
The FlexiSpot stand-up desk comes mostly assembled, so you don’t need to spend an afternoon setting it up. It also doesn’t move toward you when it’s raised, which is helpful if you have a tight workspace. It can hold up to 35 pounds, which means it’s plenty-strong for your stuff, but definitely not strong enough for you to lean on. A single handle on the side allows you to quickly adjust the desk between 12 height levels (5.9 inches to 19.7 inches).
The fiberboard-and-steel desk has a pretty deep work surface, too, measuring 35 inches by 23 inches. It’ll fit your laptop and your extra monitor and your coffee. Plus it has a wide, detachable keyboard and mouse tray. The deal is available in two color options: white or black. $245.
