New Year, New You with an Adjustable Height Desk

Now that 2019 is here and in full swing, it’s the perfect time to keep moving forward on your New Year’s resolutions. Whether you want to get healthier, lose weight or be more productive, there’s no better time than now to work on becoming the best version of you. Even though most of your goals will probably require time and hard work to accomplish, there is one small change you can make right now that can have a big impact. What is it, you ask? Simply replace your current desk with an adjustable height desk from Twin Star Home™. 

Standing desks, more commonly called adjustable height desks, are part of an increasing trend seen in offices around the country. Not only can they be just as stylish and functional as any regular desk, but they also have numerous benefits. So much so, in fact, that getting an adjustable height desk allows you to get a jumpstart on some of your top New Year’s resolutions: health, productivity and self-care.  

Why You Should Switch to an Adjustable Height Desk 

Health 

Research shows that spending eight or more hours sitting in front of a computer every day can lead to a host of negative health consequences. A sedentary lifestyle – which is defined as too much time spent seated – can increase your risk of heart disease, type 2 diabetes, back and neck pain, high blood pressure, obesity and more by as much as 18 percent.*  

That’s where standing desks come in. They encourage you to get up and out of your chair without affecting your ability to work. Employees who stand up while working actually experience fewer back and neck issues, better digestion, better circulation and better posture. They also burn more calories throughout the day than employees who sit. Different studies have found the potential for weight loss to be anywhere from 5.5 to up to 20 pounds in a year.** 

So, if health and weight loss are on your list of New Year’s resolutions, an adjustable height desk may be the push you need to get started. But if you’re not ready to commit to a full day on your feet, don’t worry. Adjustable height desks are designed so that you can easily convert them from sitting to standing height and back again as needed. Also, getting a standing mat from WellnessMats is a great way to set yourself up for success with your new adjustable height desk. A great anti-fatigue mat is easy on your feet, knees, back, and neck – plus it makes it feel like you’re standing on a cloud! 

Standing desks are a great way to help keep your new year’s resolutions, especially when you write reminders on your dry-erase compatible glass desktop, found on many Twin Star Home models.  

Work Performance 

Whether you’re hoping 2019 will be the year you get that big promotion or you just want to be more productive than you were last year, an adjustable height desk can help you hustle. Studies suggest that standing up helps employees feel more engaged at work. One study by Texas A&M researchers found that standing more helped workers boost productivity by up to 40 percent.*** With heightened focus, you’ll be able to accomplish more items on your to-do list, generate better ideas and create higher-quality work. Furthermore, people who use adjustable height desks often report having less job-related fatigue. Feeling more energized throughout the day can help boost your productivity and make you excited about the work you’re doing.  

Not to mention, adjustable height desks are often smarter than your average desk. Depending on the model you select, their organizational storage, programmable settings and ergonomic designs can help contribute to a more constructive day in the office.   

Many Twin Star Home standing desks like the Ashford Adjustable Height Desk feature Illumitouch controls for programmable presets, the GetActive Timer for reminders to stand, and USB charging ports.  

Self-Care 

It seems that 2019 is shaping up to be the year of self-care. People are starting to take better care of their mind and body and making themselves a priority. An adjustable height desk can contribute to this resolution, as well. They’ve been shown to improve mood, potentially increasing your job satisfaction and overall happiness. In addition, an office upgrade is always a great way to treat yourself. Having a stylish new desk with tons of cool features, such as USB charging ports, a glass dry-erase top and alerts that remind you it’s time to stand up and move, is one gift you can give yourself that will benefit you far into the future. Plus, adjustable height desks are a great option whether you work from home or in a traditional office environment, so they’re ideal for almost anyone interested in a more comfortable, functional workspace. And standing desks from Twin Star Home make it easy to create the home office of your dreams. Several desks are part of furniture collections designed with beautiful style that’s a stark contrast to the institutional, corporate feel of many adjustable height desks.  

An office upgrade is a great way to start your new year.
