I’ve never been much of an office worker – I hate sitting for long periods of time staring at two screens that never seem to change. But over the years, I’ve become accustomed to this life, plonking myself down each and every morning and cracking on with my work. It wasn’t until a pain started shooting down my lower back and into my legs though that I realised I needed a change. I began looking at desk chairs with added lumbar support to soothe my aches and pains – but in reality, I should have been looking for a new gaming desk.
Standing desks are expensive products and it’s this fact alone that puts so many people off – myself included. I bought one of the best gaming chairs to compensate for my pain all those years ago, and while it certainly solved the problem in the short term, I ended up with buyer’s remorse. As someone who’s put their body through the ringer over the years chasing an egg-shaped ball around a field, I realised I actually needed a break from sitting all the time – and the Flexispot E7 standing desk is the perfect antidote.
For the last month and a half, I’ve been using Flexispot’s Pro Series desk and I can honestly say that I wish I’d picked one up earlier. I no longer feel lethargic at the end of a working day, my posture has improved, and the pressure on my back has been eased.
