If you are planning to offset your workplace environment there is plenty you can do. One option, especially if you work from home, is to buy a Varidesk (Varidesk.com.au). This standing desk comes in various sizes and can be fitted in anything from a cubicle to a small workspace. It pops up or folds flat to change your work environment from sitting to standing in just three seconds. Anna-Louise Bouvier has one of these desks and suggests it’s a good idea to use it like a piece of sporting equipment. “Allow your body to adjust to it. Start with small amounts of time standing, say 20 minutes, then sitting for 20 minutes,” she says.
