Hi everyone and welcome to the Xdesk adjustable height desk blog site! First of all, allow me to introduce myself. My name is Natalie and I am one of the writers for this site. Believe it or not, I actually don’t work for Xdesk, but I do love their products.
Xdesk creates adjustable height desks for today’s modern world. We spend so much of our time typing, searching the web, reading emails, blogging, etc. these days that it only seems natural that we spend most of our days sitting. But the thing is, this isn’t natural. Think about it: for most of human history we have spent our time moving — hunting, gathering, farming, and walking from place to place. Today, though, we remain stagnant. That’s why Xdesk has created the adjustable height desk for the modern world. What I mean by this is, the adjustable height desk by Xdesk is not a bulky, rudimentary desk that can be cranked from high to low, from one setting to another — it moves quietly and smoothly with the simple push of a button to the exact height you’d like. And I should know — I’m standing behind one right now.
Before I got this adjustable height desk, I was in a job where I was sitting for almost 8 hours a day. My legs would cramp up, half the time I felt restless, and half the time I felt like I was about to fall asleep! I wasn’t being productive, I felt lazy, and let’s be honest, I was starting to gain weight.
Fast forward to now. In my new position I have been using the Xdesk adjustable height desk, and honestly, I can feel the difference. I have more energy, I am more productive, I can stand when I want, sit when I want, and sometimes I’ll even dance a little to move around (we’re being honest here!)
I guess you can say I’m a Xdesk enthusiast these days. I’ve been spreading the word to friends and family about the benefits of switching between standing and sitting, but now I’m taking it one step further. Now I want to tell you about it.
And that is why I am writing this blog, standing here behind my own Xdesk, sipping on a cup of tea (that didn’t spill when I adjusted my desk, by the way.)
This blog will not just focus on the Xdesk product. First of all, that could get boring and a little repetitive. Second of all, there is way more ground to cover than that. For all things involving ergonomic desks, you can consider this site your headquarters.
This site will focus on the benefits of adjustable height desks in general — from the physical to the mental. It will discuss the Xdesk’s environmentally friendly materials and why that is important, other products on the market, how to choose the right adjustable height desk for you, adjusting the height, stories in the news, various practices at work for better health, and much, much more.
If you ever have questions, suggestions, comments, or would just like to say “hello,” please feel free to leave a comment below.
And thanks for visiting the Xdesk blog site, your headquarters for the latest on adjustable height desks. Don’t you worry — more posts to come!
