My Story

Did you know that sitting too long can kill you, even if you exercise? You need a standing desk.

Hi, I’m Tom McKenzie

Standing desks are the answer.

For years I sat down at a desk all day at my office job. It didn’t feel a healthy way for me to spend the day and now I know that it was doing me a lot of harm.

There is a lot of evidence out there that shows too much sitting down can be very, very bad for your health.

As human beings we have not evolved to sit down slumped at a desk all day. Our bodies are built to be active. On a primary level we are built to run and hunt.

Since I switched to a standing desk I have never felt better.

Here’s why:

  • I have way more energy
  • My back doesn’t ache any more (it used to at weekends when I was more active and wasn’t sitting down so much)
  • I feel better, healthier. I don’t know how or why, but I just “do”
  • I feel more energised
  • I am more mentally engaged in my work when I am standing
  • I feel much more awake and alert
  • I feel happier. Yes, that one surprised me. I have suffered from depression a lot during my life. BUT, I have discovered that when I stand for longer periods over the day I don’t have anywhere near so many negative thoughts. That has cut my depression down to size.

In this site I have pulled together all the good standing desks and standing desk accessories to make a one-stop site for you to choose what’s right for you.

All of these products are very highly-rated.

Choose what’s best for you.

Get yourself a standing desk. Stand up and change your life.
