  • What are some fun office gadgets to help break up the workday? Taking a break from work should include a lot more than scrolling through your news feed. Check out these office-friendly gadgets to add a spot of fun and spontaneity to your day.
  • Are there any gadgets to help you manage time? Between work, hobbies, and maintaining a social life both online and off, we all seem to be so busy all the time. Luckily, there are plenty of time-saving gadgets to help with tasks so you don’t sweat the small stuff.

For most of us, a 9-to-5 job is notoriously synonymous with an absurd amount of sitting. Desk jockeys can spend more than 40 hours a week sitting, and that doesn’t even include time spent sitting in the car (or on public transport).

Did you know? You’re supposed to stand at your workstation for at least 15 minutes every hour.

You might be wondering how to incorporate all this standing (and walking) while working. You might even be considering how much it’ll impact your productivity. But, being mobile at work can improve your productivity. These five gadgets will keep you moving without impacting your efficiency.
