This year has unfolded in a myriad of unexpected ways. One major shift, for many of us, is that our homes have become our temporary (or permanent) places of work.
Naturally, the work-from-home life has tons of benefits, including not having to commute on crowded public transportation or being able to wear sweatpants all day. But there are, inevitably, some cons to this as well — namely, that we’re probably not moving around quite as much as we should be.
If there’s one thing that’s become abundantly clear, it’s that having the right home office set-up can help mitigate this and provide a healthier approach to WFH. Local e-commerce company EFFYDESK is committed to helping Canadians create the ideal home workspace.
The retailer, which is based out of Vancouver, offers world-class ergonomic standing desks. As of August 5, they will be launching a week-long sale with 20% off and free shipping on all electric standing desks. The company also offers corporate deals if you’re looking to outfit your whole team.
If you’re used to sitting at a desk all day, the notion of standing at your desk instead might seem a little foreign. But implementing an ergonomic standing desk into your day-to-day can help negate some of the harmful impacts of being sedentary.
By standing up, you force your body to constantly change positions and improve your posture, in turn helping reduce the effects of sitting, including having a hunched back, rounded shoulders, and tight hip flexors.
Generally, standing desks reinforce mindfulness surrounding how your body is positioned and help you stay ergo-minded.
People and productivity are the driving forces behind the mission at EFFYDESK. Since opening in 2019, they’ve helped thousands of Canadians get access to high-quality and innovative ergonomic solutions with affordability in mind.
Their signature height-adjustable, motorized electric standing deck collection is set apart by its reinforced desk frames and extra stability. With the touch of a button, users can adjust desk height and transition from sitting to standing (in case your legs get tired!).
Since launching, the team has felt continuously inspired to help people improve their work-from-home routines. They hold the belief that our bodies are meant to move around freely and fluidly, and that doing so is beneficial to our physical and mental health.
EFFYDESK’s philosophy is that spending substantial amounts of time at your working station warrants investing in furniture that has the potential to improve your overall wellbeing.
Plus, if there’s ever a good time to invest in anything, it’s when you can get a serious discount.
