Word is catching on that, hey, sitting at a desk all day isn’t good for our health, and the standing desk revolution is slowly creeping into offices all across the country. People are opting to stand while at work to lower their risk of heart disease and weight gain while also increasing their concentration. Sounds great, right?
But to really soak in all the benefits of a standing desk and make it—dare I say?—fun, you’re going to want to pair it with a balance board. Standing desks are great on their own, but after a few hours (or minutes) fidgeting starts to set in and and you’ll find yourself wanting to sit pretty quickly. The Gaiam Evolve Balance Board is specifically designed for standing desk use with neutral ankle-foot positioning and non-slip texture. Right now, it’s on sale at Amazon $40.49, which is almost 50% off and also the lowest price we’ve ever seen on the site.
A balance board forces the user to stabilize their muscles, engage their core, and rock side to side throughout the day, making standing a little more enjoyable with the bonus of some (very) light exercise. It’s a great deal for anyone who wants to tone their legs while typing away and crunching numbers at work. Plus, that whole back and forth motion might be enough to snap you out of your daydream, making for a more productive workday.
