Have you considered getting a standing desk? Especially if you often complain about a backache when you are at work. Do you sit for too long when working? It doesn’t even have to be at work alone.
For me who works a 9-5 as well as work on my side hustles, I find I’m tempted to work for too long on my laptop/ desk. One of the reasons, I love my wedding photography career or side hustle is because it affords me the opportunity to move around.
But these are some of the downsides of earning a living. Depending on the type of job you do, you might be sitting for too long or standing excessively. It’s left for us to make the right decisions to live a healthier life.
When I first noticed that I was having back aches, I immediately went to visit a chiropractor who spent a lot of time counseling me about my health and habits.
I started taking conscious efforts to improve my lifestyle and going for routine adjustment visits. I try to take regular walks during my break and have noticed improvements. More has to be done irrespective.
So when AnthroDesk, a Standing Desk in Canada, reached out to me for a collaboration, I was particularly happy because this is something I presently need: a balance! Their Antrodesk affords you the opportunity to work while feeling flexible and moving your body. You can easily, convert it to a standing desk and I’ll be sharing in this post, how I was able to set it up and give an accurate review.
Brief Overview of AnthroDesk
AnthroDesk is a Canadian company that specializes in selling standing desks in Canada and modern office accessories that help improve posture, reduce back pain, make you healthier and more productive when working.
What stood out for me was the fact that this company was started out of a personal experience of its founder. You can check out their About page for the full story!
Why I Recommend this Brand
For most people who work in traditional office settings, you’ll find that many workers sit on their desk for long hours working away. Unfortunately, sitting can have short and long-term effects on your health and body.
From research, sitting for long periods of time causes a number of health concerns. They include obesity and a cluster of conditions — increased blood pressure, high blood sugar, excess body fat around the waist and abnormal cholesterol levels that make up metabolic syndrome. It may also increase the risk of death from cardiovascular disease and cancer.
It’s therefore important to ensure that you are regularly taking efforts to move your body and improve your health. A standing desk is a good way to live a healthier lifestyle as a worker.
Set up, Initial Reaction & Experience
I was sent the AnthroDesk Standing Desk Converter which arrived in a few days. Set up was quite easy as there was an instruction sheet to follow. In less than 10 minutes, I had the standing desk set up and was happy to try it out.
You can easily change the height of the desk from sitting to standing simply by releasing and re-applying the locking mechanism. It also comes with a “Risk-Free” 30-day return policy.
