This particular Covetable is slightly novel, as I am using said product while I write this. I’m now using it again, but differently; such is the ingenious functionality at the heart of Varidesk products.
It’s abundantly clear now that a sedentary lifestyle and lack exercise are wreaking havoc upon the populace, with myriad health and wellness issues directly related to sitting still for too much of our days.
Enter the Varidesk Pro Plus 36 sit-stand desktop, which (as the name implies) lends you the option to work at your desk standing up. The founders originally designed the Varidesk to help a friend with back pain, and it is a perfect example of a design solution which can tangibly improve our quality of life.
Stick the super sturdy and stylish Varidesk on your existing desk, flip the paddles at the side to your preferred level and you’re golden in seconds to work in a range of standing positions.
The two-tiered design gives you a spacious upper display area for your laptop, monitor, or even dual-monitor setup, while the lower deck has plenty of room for a full-sized keyboard, mouse and more. I normally place one laptop on the upper with a wireless keyboard below, beside a pen and notepad.
The Varidesk Pro Plus 36 has become a staple in my work life, and I genuinely feel the benefits.
Of course another benefit is that should I wish to sit, a swift flip on said paddles and I’m back on my fitball to write, browse, or procrastinate as I see fit.
While the quantity and quality of my work is down to me, Varidesk helps me create a better environment to work, and live in; that’s definitely Covetable in my book.
