If you spent 2016 typing all day at your desk, your health resolution probably included a few sitting hacks this year. If you’re considering a standing desk, you couldn’t make a smarter move. Whether you’re writing lines of code, making jewelry, embedding macros in spreadsheets or crafting clever headlines, spending the bulk of your day sitting is impacting your health. Add to that those four hours that the average person spends sitting and watching TV, reading, eating or relaxing and… you get the picture. Yikes.


Standing desk manufacturer NextDesk has designed an adjustable desk that’s a dream come true for anyone who works from home. The *Flex* desk adjusts to multiple heights and configurations.


A small space dweller’s dream, it fits into even the tiniest office nook. And because the height adjusts to more than 200 positions at the touch of a button, it can serve multiple purposes as a work desk, craft/hobby table, coffee table, dining table, kitchen island or even bar cart.

The ease in altering positions means two or more people can definitely share — even if you’re six feet tall and your child is a three-foot six-year-old. Check out the adjustable desk in action.


NextDesks start at $600. Personalize yours by choosing among several wood-metal options to fit your decor style using the *build* form.


And since you’re taking that extra step to improve your health by standing more, you might as well save your shoulders, back and wrists while you’re at it. Check out this nifty app by Ergotron that tells you the right measurements and position for your height. (You’re welcome!)
