Working from home? Get our Edesk electric standing desk!

It isn’t just toilet paper and non-perishables that have been flying off the shelves thanks to Coronavirus.

According to many office furniture retailers, there’s also been a run on office furniture as many Aussies scramble to set up a system that allows them to work from home.

And that extends to standing desks as well.

The health benefits of electric standing desks are well-known, with many offices replacing traditional desks with desks that can easily alternate between sitting and standing positions.

It’s no surprise that many office workers who’ve seen these benefits first-hand are looking to bring them home as they try to weather the current global crisis.

Ergomotion still has plenty of electric standing desks in Melbourne

So you’ve gone from store to store and you can’t find any standing desks in stock, no matter where you look.

Fortunately, there’s still one place in Melbourne that’s still fully stocked!

Ergomotion’s Edesk electric standing desks are still in stock and ready to be picked up from our headquarters in Bentleigh East (or delivered if you live further afield, or don’t feel comfortable going out).

And unlike our motiondesk® range, that is custom-made to order, our Edesk is ready to go right now!

We can deliver home office desks fully assembled, minimising the disruption to your routine.

Work from home desks: how to make the most of it

For many Aussies, this will be their first time telecommuting. As such, there’ll no doubt be a period of adjustment.

So it’s your first time working from home for more than a day or two. What can you do to get the most out of your set-up?

1) Set aside a dedicated work area at home

Do you have a spare room that isn’t being used right now? Or a corner which is currently empty?

If so, consider turning this into your work space.

For starters, we may be working from home for the long-run, depending on how long the dust takes to settle.

As such, you’ll want to ensure that your working environment is comfortable.

The other, more important reason? It helps separate your private and work lives:

  • A separate room can reduce distractions
  • It can increase privacy from noisy kids or pets during meetings
  • It helps you keep work and home separate

One of the biggest problems with working from home is that it can lead to you actually working MORE and carrying work stress with you.

You might start to feel like you’re always mentally “on-call”, and don’t get an opportunity to detach yourself.

By assigning one specific area as your work room, you can create a psychological barrier.

2) Keep your routine up

That means don’t turn into a slob!

When working from home, it’s tempting to skip your morning pre-work routine. 

It can feel liberating and save you a bunch of time – however, it can also hurt in the long-run!

Human beings are creatures of habit. In many cases, our pre-work routine is an essential part of mentally preparing ourselves for work.

Fail to keep it up, and your output could suffer!

If you want to maintain your performance, we recommend keeping your routine up.

That means:

Getting up at a similar time

You might think you can sleep an extra hour and simply make your way to your computer a few minutes before you clock on…

But we can almost guarantee you’ll feel sluggish and tired for the first portion of the day! 

Changing out of your pyjamas

Even if it’s more casual than what you’d normally wear to the office, try and get out of your pyjamas.

Doing your hair and grooming yourself

This can also save you in the case of unexpected video conferences!

All of this will help you get ‘in the zone’ and perform at your best.

Once the day is over, you can let down your hair and get back into your trackies – also helping you detach your workday from your private life in the evening. 

3) Make sure you’re properly set up

Two of the basic necessities of working at home are a PC and a fast internet connection.

Before you commit to working from home, you’ll need to ensure that both of these important criteria are met!

First thing’s first, you’ll want to make sure you can connect to any kind of server or intranet that your workplace uses.

Next up, ensure that your home PC has all the necessary software installed to do your work. If possible, upload as much of your work to cloud storage before heading home.

As this will be your main method of working from home, it’s crucial that you get it right!

4) Set boundaries

This is related to tip #1 – honestly though, it’s so important, we felt it deserved its own section!

Working at home may cause you to be overworked, especially if you allow yourself to take on extra work (or tell yourself you’ll work a little longer on the couch tonight…)

 That’s why you need to set up boundaries between work and your personal life. 

Setting up boundaries means knowing when to switch off and maintaining your normal contact hours.

However, it also means knowing not to let personal matters get in the way of work. That means no personal chores between 9am and 5pm.

Electric Sit Stand Desk for Home Office5) Prioritise your health with an electric standing desk!

We’re all worried about our health at the moment. Many are taking emergency precautions, like wearing a mask in public or doubling our (now fortnightly) grocery shop.

Of course, that doesn’t mean that you can neglect the other parts of your health!

As we all know, sitting still for 8-9 hours a day dramatically increases your risk of health conditions such as heart disease.

As we’ve mentioned time and again (and which we’re sure you already know, since you’re on our website), standing desks offer a remedy that can:

  • Preventing back and neck pain
  • Lessen the risk of obesity and weight gain
  • Boosts your energy and improve your mood
  • Lower blood sugar levels and type 2 diabetes

With an electric sit-stand desk, you can freely switch between sitting and standing throughout the day with little more than the push of a button.

Our new Edesk takes this even further, with optional bluetooth control that allows you to set your electric sit-stand desk using an app on your phone!

Stand up for your health in more ways than one with Ergomotion’s electric standing desk!

Great service and really quick shipping. It is great to know that you are getting quality parts from a Scandinavian manufacturer with your standing desk purchase rather than the cheap knock off stuff you get from other major brands. Reasonably priced for the quality too!

Guy was very accommodating with meeting him at a time that suited me. He assembled the desk prior to me collecting so I only had to carry it inside with help (it's pretty heavy). The desk is great, the storage racks underneath with the 6 x built in powerpoints was worth the extra money. I have a functioning & tidy workplace.
Guy was brilliant, I highly recommend.

Have now purchased 2 stand up office desks off Guy, benchmark sales service from him, all via email, so easy; from quote to plug in, only matched by the strong quality of these machines, solid and stable. If only everything in life was this easy and reliable.

I purchased an EDesk this month from Ergomotion, and it was a remarkably smooth transaction. Guy was eager to answer all my questions before my purchase. As a first-time buyer of a standing desk, I truly appreciated how he addressed my queries with thorough details and provided options within my budget.

The delivery process was also smooth, despite a slight delay in the ETA. Guy ensured I received all necessary updates from the courier/removalist.

I've been using the desk for a couple of weeks now and I'm satisfied with it. It's sturdy on all height adjustments and the motor works as expected. I also like oak finish because it's clean-looking and suits my room setup.

Overall, I'm happy with my purchase and I'll definitely recommend Ergomotion to someone looking for their desk needs.

I've had an ergomotion desk for 10 years. It's still as good today as it was brand new. Over the years Guy has always responded promptly to any guidance I've needed (mostly help putting the desk back together after removalists take it apart).

Great service from Guy and the team at Ergomotion! Helped with all my queries and was able to source a standing desk part for me when many others weren't able! Highly recommend!

Rod Hathway 10/11/23

Skip the big name brands and buy from Guy instead, 10/10 linak parts with a very well built tabletop.

Chris Wu 06/11/23

I purchased the edesk from Guy at Ergomotion. Guy was a pleasure to deal with and the desk arrived the next day. Guy was highly knowledgeable on the desk and provided very prompt support on the installation. I can highly recommend Ergomotion.
