Converting Your Desk to a Standing Desk
It should be no surprise now that sitting for most of the day has become a habit in our modern-day society. Researchers have discovered that sitting for hours a day, every day will have a negative impact on your overall health - even if you exercise (WHAT?!)
So how can we combat this?
Well, we can start by standing! It’s been recommended that we change positions around every 15-20 minutes. According to the Mayo Clinic our monitors should be at eye level (or just below), arms close to the body, hands at or below elbows, and our wrists should be straight.
Now, how do we start standing?
It all depends on your budget honestly, but (to all my people using makeshift desks) we always recommend that your surface is sturdy! At Stand Steady, we have a variety of options for you to choose from based on your needs! From simple converters that will turn your existing desk into a standing desk, to electric desks that are easily height adjustable.
Budget Friendly Option – Desk Converter (Standing Only)

Our Recommendation: Stand Steady Original
