Exploring Standing Desk Options

My current home office set up has served me well for the past year. But in recent months, I’ve been debating an upgrade to my ergonomics and adding a standing desk to my household workstation rotation. You have probably seen the countless articles expounding  the benefits of sitting less each day, from a lower risk of
illness to increased life expectancy.

All of this and my choice of gaming as a hobby has pointed me in the direction of finding an alternative to the couch.

The choice to move to a 50:50 standing/sitting split can mean an investment in a new desk for your home or office. In doing my own person research, here are some great options to explore:

Convert Your Current Desk
