We spend lots of time and energy making our homes perfect: choosing paint samples, shopping for furniture, hanging photos. It makes sense—we spend most of our time at home. Right?
Many of us may spend just as much, if not more time at the office, and even if that’s not true, sometimes it feels like it is. It makes sense that happier work environments can help us work better. If our desks are our “homes” for the day, why not optimize them for comfort and productivity? Here’s list of must-haves to help workers make the most of their office space.
Sitting all day long has been called “lethal activity,” while the Mayo Clinic’s Dr. James Levine has coined it “sitting disease”. I guess that’s reason enough for lots of people, who’ve made the switch from sitting to standing desks, so we recommend them.
If and when the majority converts to standing desks, most of us will still need a chair. The best chairs are ergonomic, so we recommend the Steelcase B Free Sit Stand.
