How much time do you spend sitting at a desk each day?
For most of us, it’s at least a few hours – or more likely the entire working day. It’s no secret that this leads to terrible posture and is a far cry away from what our bodies were designed to do.
We can’t promise you that you’ll never have to work behind a desk again, unfortunately. But we can make you happier, healthier, and more productive while you’re doing it. You don’t need to hate Mondays!
At this point you’re probably wondering: who is this standing enthusiast that claim they can make me happier while filing reports?
I'm Maya – the founder of Simple Standing Desk. I have a background in healthcare and, as you might have guessed, I'm interested in healthy living. I've spent years supporting people with serious back injuries and helping them get back into shape.
What I eventually realized is that sending these people back to sit behind a desk for 8-hours a day was just adding to their problem. There is no shortage of research to indicate that sitting for long periods of time is bad for your posture and health.
Research conducted at the University of Waterloo suggests that you should stand for at least 30 minutes per hour while working to promote a healthier lifestyle. Standing allows for better circulation, as this is the body’s natural posture.
Somehow, someone managed to convince us all that sitting hunched over a laptop like a hunchback is a good idea. It isn’t.I want you to experience the career-driving benefits of feeling more energized and switched on while working. I want to help you to avoid looking like a hunchback in your later years.
Our standing desks use premium materials, while our B2C and B2B business model means that we ship directly to you and cut out the middle man. In other words, you get a great desk at a very reasonable price, and a middle man has to start working on their CV again.
We offer a variety of styles and designs, so you can choose the one that is right for you and matches the décor of your office. All of our standing desks are height adjustable, so if you want to sit down for a while, then you can.
If that sounds like you, we recommend also purchasing a sit to stand stool so you can take advantage of multiple positions throughout the day for maximum health and comfort.
We also offer a vast collection of accessories that you can use to mount your keyboard, lift your monitor, and easily convert your regular desk into a standing workspace in seconds.
A business is lost without a core set of beliefs. We started Simple Standing Desk because we know the health benefits of standing while working, and we just don’t see enough companies doing something to address this issue.
