Work from home is the new working style, and everybody is spending most of the hours sitting on a chair, working on a laptop. Working from home has lots of benefits, but a good posture isn't one of them.
Hunching over tables or back problems are more prevalent than ever, and all the sitting we do while working or playing is only contributing to the problem. We strongly recommend opting for a height-adjustable standing desk to help you cycle between sitting and standing during work.
Along with a desk, consider introducing an ergonomic chair in your remote office setup to offer good back support, prevent fatigue and eliminate any health issues that may arise due to the wrong posture. Consider adding these remote gears and resources to your daily workday.
