What is an active workstation?
Stand up to slouching, back discomfort, fatigue and the other negative effects of sitting all day by creating an active workstation. With a stand-up desk at its core, an active workstation can allow you to move while answering customer calls over the phone, edit photos at your computer and perform the other tasks you commonly do each day. Creating an active workstation can be as simple as adding a desk riser to your current work surface or swapping it out altogether for a sit-stand desk with height adjustments.
While stretching your legs, you can also fight fatigue with an anti-fatigue floor mat that takes the pressure off your feet and encourages movement, keeping the blood flowing as you work. Discover other active essentials for your business- or home-office checklist that will keep you moving throughout the day, so you can remain focused and productive.
How do I use a standing desk?
Learning how to use a standing desk is simpler than you might think. A height-adjustable desk can help improve your posture, core strength and overall energy level throughout your 9-to-5 day. Most stand-up desks are easy to adjust using a manual lift-assist mechanism or lever to raise and lower the work surface. Others come with an electric motor and anti-collision technology built into the design, so you can adjust it with a press of a button without worrying about it bumping into other furniture along the way. If you choose this type of desk, experiment with heights to find the ideal level for you. While many models come with a certain number of preset heights, some let you set your own for a full-range of customization.
