Staying fit for Summer starts with your workstation.
Summer has come at us fairly quickly this year. Most of us feel like just a moment ago, the clock struck midnight on December 31, 2020, and welcomed us into the new year of 2021. The warm air and wants of staying inside with the AC blowing or even thoughts of vacationing to a new destination lingers in all of our minds.
We all want to look good for the fun that Summer has to offer. To take those fun photos with your friends while you’re on vacation without the lingering thought of wondering if you will look good in the final result tends to be a thing most of us think about. Summertime is a time that you get to kick back, relax and maybe even go on a fun vacation to take you away from daily life for a few days.
Normally, people who work a 9-5 job don’t get the Summer off like we did when we were kids. The only time we may get off during the Summer is if we choose to take some vacation time to get away from the struggles of work life. Vacations are our treat to ourselves to remind us that there is a life to be had outside of work. Some people tend to forget that is much needed to take a break after a while. We tend to get in the groove of work that we get stuck in that repetitive loop of sleep, eat, work and repeat.
Summer is a reminder of the breaks or vacations we need to take, as well as where we may have put our health in the previous months. It makes us re-evaluate our habits while we work and if we may have taken the wrong steps. We tend to want to steer in the best direction at all times to live life to its best potential.
Most of us are indoors at all times, due to COVID and working from home. Even though the seasons are changing outside, our environment has stayed the same. After a while, that environment can become stale and we may need to make a change to keep us motivated.
One big motivation that tends to happen around Summertime is becoming more physically fit and healthier. With working from home and some local gyms being closed, we are pretty limited to how we can be healthier at home in our current environment.
Some of us have created makeshift gyms, do the casual workouts on are available on YouTube, or maybe just make time to go on a brisk walk outside to at least get a bit of fresh air. Working from home may limit a few things in our lives, but should never limit your attempt to being healthier.
Being in an environment that promotes healthier living should still be happening even when you are at home. Cutting out things you don’t need like unhealthy snacks, stress-fueled work habits, and even avoiding not taking as many breaks as you should is a great start to being healthier.
Many people forget that there are lots of ways to be healthier while at home, even while you work. The thing that a lot of people don’t take into consideration when being healthier is how their workstations will affect them. Your workstation affects more than just your efficiency and total focus while you work. It also affects your physical and mental health.
Your physical and mental health being affected while you work tends to make you want to work less, focus on the tasks you are doing and sometimes even want to get out of bed the next day. Considering the current state the world is in with the continuing precautions we are taking against COVID-19, many people are still stressed every day they work.
There have been many people who have their mental health slowly dwindle due to lack of socializing with their co-workers, feeling cut off and isolated while they work from home. Your health should always be a priority. How you feel throughout the day affects how you can feel physically and mentally. Granted physical health should be a top priority as well.
If your mental health starts to dwindle it could affect your focus, your motivation, and even start to affect the way your body can feel. Stress is a hard thing to avoid, but with the right tools, you can keep a great balance between your mental health and physical health.
One great way is ergonomic standing desks. These desks are a great way to go from sitting to standing. Ergonomic standing desks have been a way that people have adjusted their work from home experience and put themselves on a path to being healthier while they work.
Ergonomic desks are always the best alternatives when it comes to any of the standard desks out there. Believe it or not, ergonomic desks have been proven to affect your overall physical and mental health in a way that benefits your life. Studies over the last few years have shown that many companies are opting into ergonomic office desks and supplies over the standard.
Sitting all day tends to be worse for your health than you think. Throughout the year's people have come to find that they are gradually experiencing more pain in their back and hips by sitting at standard desks all day. This has also caused issues with weight gain, poor circulation, an increase in stress, poor mental health, and complication to your overall physical health.
One of the best ergonomic desks out there is FlexiSpot’s Esben Standing Desk. This ergonomic standing desk is clean, minimal, and aesthetically free of any distractions.

The Esben Standing desk is more comfortable than the standard desk making working from home so much more relaxing and stress-free.
This is also very practical for your home office in small spaces. Most people who have a spare room available have the luxury of more space versus people whose home has limited rooms and tend to set up their workstation in their living room or bedroom. It’s one of the many benefits for anyone that uses them.
One of the features that set this apart from standard desks is the fact that it has very spacious drawers to store your office supplies seamlessly. Most standard desks not only don’t have drawers as it is, but they also lack any form of organization.
Usually, with a standard desk, you will have to buy your storage, baskets, etc to keep your desk completely organized. With this ergonomic standing desk, you are getting integrated storage drawers.
