“With lockdown in the UK meaning many more working from home weeks, it was time to look after my back and my fitness and invest in a standing desk! This sustainable option from @harmoni.desk looks amazing on my desk and is made of wood so no nasty plastics. I also purchased through ShopPay so the delivery was carbon neutral. Stay home and stay safe everyone!”
Q: What is your occupation?
I am the part-time Individual Giving Manager at the MS Trust and a part-time self-employed mental health practitioner. I work from home due to Covid-19 but will be flexi-working between office and home in the future.
Q: What sort of routine do you have?
I normally wake up at 6/6.30am, do some exercise (a walk, Zumba, HIIT or yoga), work 9-5pm then do some volunteering, hang out with my partner or friends, watch Netflix or read a good book in the evening.
Q: How has our standing desk helped your health?
I have MS myself and my back is quite numb and sore a lot of the time. The standing desk has helped my posture and distracts me from the numbness. My step count is also up and I am more proactive about wandering to the kitchen to rehydrate or open a window for some fresh air.
Q: What difference has standing to work made to your productivity?
I struggle with fatigue and a short attention span. Alternating between standing and sitting helps me to maintain my energy, keep focused and I also have a dance party at my desk to my favourite music while I’m working - I just can’t help it! I have already recommended the Harmoni desk to a friend - it definitely is a great product and amazing value for money!
