IN­STANT EL­E­VA­TION

Homes+ (Australia) - - PLUS HEALTH -

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.

POP IT UP Soho standup desk, $225, from Varidesk.
