Sit in comfort

Most of us who work in offices spend our day sitting. Efficiency demands comfort. Think about the chair you are sitting in literally right now. Wirecutter has names the Steelcase Gesture the best office chair for 2018. Sure, it's expensive, but you are worth the $1,000 price tag. Especially if it makes you happy and productive for 12 years - the length of the warranty. 

The standing desk is the ultimate modern office furniture trend

It's time you made your stand

The New York Times has declared that sitting is the new cancer. Standing while you work could prevent potential physical demise. So consider a standing desk. Leafwire has called the ApexDesk Vortex Series 60-inch the best standing desk option in 2018. Even better, as a sit/stand model, you can shift your approach as you move throughout the day and various tasks. 

A game of mouse and mouse

While we are sitting (or standing) we are clicking. Clicking away can cause some health issues. Wile most people think of carpal tunnel syndrome as an injury of the early industrial revolution, it is very much present in today's office workers. Repetitive strain injury is also a regular pain suffered by workers who use a computer all day (and night). Consider a mouse upgrade. TechRadar has called the Logitech MX Anywhere 2 the most versatile mouse on the market.
