There’s a reason you keep hearing the phrase “sitting is the new smoking”. Like smoking, chronic sitting is a nasty habit. People who sit a lot tend to die earlier. Excessive sitting is associated with premature mortality from all causes, and the development of the “big three” killer diseases: heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. Excessive sitting can lead to or exacerbate chronic back and neck pain. It creates tight hips, flabby glutes, soft abs, rounded shoulders, and “text neck”. Our bodies aren’t meant to remain in any static position for hours at a time. Sitting all day is generally a bad idea, and standing desks can give you the flexibility to stand and move around, and leaves you a little freer to get that activity that we all need, standing desk or no. For today we gather 5 Best Standing Desks. Sitting may be the reason for your afternoon slump. The metabolic and circulatory slowdown can affect your ability to focus and impact your performance at work. Many standing desk users report an increase in energy, focus and productivity.


Some standing desks are definitely better than others—they’re either more customizable, more affordable, easily adjustable, bear more weight, or are just better for most workspaces. Take a look and order your best standing desk.

Monitor Arm

The attached stands that typically come with a new monitor are not ergonomic or adjustable; using a monitor arm will allow you to maintain good posture, avoid eye strain, control monitor position and save desktop space. Most people who purchase a monitor arm say they should have done so years ago.

The UPLIFT Monitor Arm is a stylish, pneumatic monitor arm that provides complete fingertip adjustment for height, depth and lateral movement with an adjustable counterbalance system that allows for easy movement.
