Height Adjustable Desk Accessories

In our last post, we discussed some of the benefits of height adjustable desks. 

Today, we’ll be breaking down some accessories you can use to enhance your standing desk experience and make your workspace more comfortable and personalised.

A Decent Chair 

If you’ve invested or are considering investing in a standing desk then the chances are your health is already on your radar. While a height adjustable desk is great for the body and mind, there will be some time you spend sitting down inevitably throughout the day.

Try complementing your standing routine with an ergonomic chair, purpose-built to support the spine and lead to a reduction in back pain and other discomforts.

Anti Fatigue Mats

Anti-fatigue mats are placed or fitted into hard floor surfaces and reduce fatigue caused by standing on flooring for long periods. Anti-fatigue matting helps in increasing productivity, reducing daily physical pressures placed on the body.

Choose the anti-fatigue mat suitable for the environment you are working in whether it is in the home or at work. Mats are available in various forms and materials acting as a barrier by absorbing shocks from floor surfaces.

Under Desk Attachable Draws

Perhaps a little more niche, but there is nothing worse than rummaging around your study or office for a document or stapler when you’re in your flow state at work. Fortunately, there are some fantastic solutions for under desk storage, including the following from the Stand Up Desk Store.

A Desk Plant… Really

A 2010 study by the new University of Technology, Sydney, found significant reductions in stress among workers when plants were introduced to their workspace. Results included a 37% fall in reported tension and anxiety; a 58% drop in depression or dejection; a 44% decrease in anger and hostility; and a 38% reduction in fatigue.

Although the study’s sample size was small, researchers concluded: “This study shows that just one plant per workspace can provide a very large lift to staff spirits, and so promote wellbeing and performance.”

Proponents of colour psychology argue that the colour green has a relaxing and calming effect – so decorating offices with this shade could potentially have a similar effect to introducing plants to the workspace.

On a separate note, a study by the University of Munich and Rochester suggested a link between the colour green and getting into a creative headspace. 



Closing Thought

Standing desks can provide a wide range of benefits for those working in sedentary office roles. Of course, it’s not always easy to adopt a new way of working, but hopefully these accessories will ensure you a seamless transition to a healthier way of working.
