There are many ways to improve your posture like the obvious sitting and standing up straight. You can also do Pilates to become aware of your posture type and strengthen and stretch the particular muscles needed to improve your posture. But since most of us spend hours a day sitting in front of a computer screen, there is a way to instantly start working on your posture, while you work! The way you can do that is by getting a desk stand to lift your computer screen to a better level; along with adding some standing time while you work. Not only do you improve your posture, but you will have less back and neck pain caused by sitting and slouching in front a screen all day!
Honestly, I was skeptical at first. I had never used a standing desk before and I couldn’t imagine using it for a long time. But once I started I couldn’t stop! It was a lot easier than I imagined and I immediately noticed an improvement in my posture. And instead of feeling tired after standing, I actually felt energized. I also felt like the work I did while standing, was more productive and focused than before. Now I love standing and working!
I used the JUMBO desk stand from DeskStand™ as well as their anti-fatigue mat.
I placed the stand on my actual desk and it worked amazingly well as I could adjust the 2 different levels. That way I could place my laptop in the perfect level. It also have a slot for your cellphone or tablet! There is also plenty of space on the platform for things like papers, pens and plants.
“Now I love standing and working!”
I would also recommend using the anti-fatigue mat to stand on while you work. It makes a huge difference and is so soft yet supportive under your feet. When you are standing for a few hours at a time, it helps to relax your leg and feet muscles.
