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!

Bought sit, stand desk. Great product, fantastic service all at a reasonable price.

Guy was a pleasure to deal with from the beginning and catered to my specifications. The quality of the table was amazing! I’ve seen some other desks from other manufacturers which were extremely flimsy, unstable and poorly constructed. The product was custom built and received very promptly as well. Thanks again Guy, I know where I’ll be heading the next time I’m in need of a desk!

My young son adores his sit stand desk from Ergomotion, we are very happy with the quality and we love that his desk will grow with him into his adult years. Guy was a pleasure to deal with. We highly recommend.

Guy provided an e-desk for me. I used it with a natural bamboo tabletop 180cm in width and it works wonderfully. Guy was very responsive with a qeury i had about the product - i couldnt ask for more. Highly recommended.

Guy has been one of the most helpful people in helping me setting up my brand new desk frame. He guided me on where to find the best quality desktops to add onto the desk legs.

Guy was an absolute professional from start to finish. Very seamless process with ordering to pick up taking less than 24hrs.

Guy will take the time to understand your requirements, communicates clearly and will not try to upsell items you don’t require. Instructions to put together are clear and the videos on the website are helpful too.

We are extremely happy with our purchases. Desks are well designed and built. We love our new desks and would happily recommend Ergomotion.

Thanks Guy and all the best!

**Reposting from my personal account.**

I spoke to Guy shortly after moving to Australia to get some information about their standing desks. I'd been on the hunt for one for a while and was struggling to find something that seemed to be good quality while still being reasonably priced.

Guy answered all my questions confidently and clearly, checked their stock levels since I was looking at a hardwood desktop not specified on their site and got back to me promptly with all the information.

When I was ready to go ahead with the order, it was a quick phone call and my order was on it's way. When the delivery seemed as though it might take longer than expected, Guy dropped the desk with me himself.

I put the desk together which was a very simple process - although a powered screw driver would have made the job much easier for me, I left all my tools in South Africa when I moved over and haven't built up a collection again just yet. The desk has been great and will get I'm sure, many years of happy use!

I highly recommend Ergomotion as a brand! Guy's service is a strong addition to an already great product.

Guy was just a pleasure to deal with. Excellent knowledge and advice which followed through to excellent after sales. The e-desk is very sturdy, easy to use and looks great. Great job Guy and thank you

I love my Ergomotion stand up desk! It is easy to set up and is made of quality materials. However, the best part of the purchase was the excellent customer service I received. Guy (the owner) came out in the pouring rain to measure the boot of my car to make sure I could pick the desk up (fully assembled) and it would fit. I ordered the desk on a Monday and it was ready by Tuesday morning. He helped loading the desk in my car, removed a leg so that it could fit and explained how to put the leg back in, which was very straightforward and did not need any tools. If you are considering buying a stand up desk, I would definitely recommend Ergomotion.

Guy was lovely to deal with. He was prompt and courteous in all his communication. He was happy for us to look at the desk before purchase. Once ordered, the desk arrived so quickly. Guy set it all up and we are extremely happy with the product. Thanks Guy for your great service and care.
