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.
