If You're Still WFH This $139 Standing Desk Is a Worthwhile Investment
Since we began working from home back in March this year (HOW is it September already?!) my WFH spot been in various locations around my shoe-box-sized apartment; the kitchen table, the lounge, my bed, the floor, a couple of different cafes (when allowed) and even the local bowling club that one day my wifi went down.
Sure, some of these locations sound like a dream, hello, a cheeky beveragino at the bowlo while you work? It'd be un-Australian not too! However, none of these setups have been remotely good for my posture, so my body and physio keep telling me.
After various twinges and aches, and a few trips to the physio, I decided that maybe it's time to invest in some sort of a stand up desk situation. Which sounds great on paper, however when you live in a two-bedroom, beachside apartment in Sydney, you have zero room for activities, least of all an actual stand up desk. Enter: Esdesk.
Esdesk is an innovative standing desk converter and monitor stand with shelves that are customisable and economically tailored to your ideal height. Made from sustainable materials, it's lightweight yet strong enough to support your monitors, keyboards and even a few desk plants. You can also assemble it in minutes and collapse it at the end of your working day if, like me, you're going to need your kitchen table back.
It also comes in a variety of customisable cute finishes including marble, wood and concrete, so that it seamlessly integrates into your home.
All you need to get started is five measurements, including your elbow height and monitor size, to ensure that the perfect ergonomic workspace set-up is designed for you.
Jordan McCreary, a workspace ergonomics expert and physiotherapist, says a combination of sitting and standing throughout your working day is ideal for your body. "We love the Esdesk because it not only gives you the perfect standing position, it also puts you in the perfect sitting position," explains McCreary.
The best part, these little babies are super affordable ranging from $69 to $139 — worth it if you're not sure when you might head back to the office again.
