How to build the perfect stay active treadmill desk walking workstation while working from home?
1- A functional workplace equipment such as a treadmill desk or a bike desk. I recommend treadmill desks.
2- A height adjustable desk so you can pick a height that allows you to look straight not down.
3- A large enough screen for you see letters without the need to lean forward.
4- A stool / chair so you can take breaks
5- USB / wireless keyboard and mouse so you don’t have to use the small laptop keyboard.
6- A will to stay active
7- A way to get feedback to track your progress and stay motivated. It feels great to see the number of steps and the distance you completed at the end of the day.
Like many of you, i spend many hours a day in front of screens to work, learn or get some entertainment. I did all those things in my twenties and thirties sitting on a chair hunched over a laptop.
Overtime it caused me several health problems. Now, i still spend as much time in front of screens but i altered my environment to support more physical activity and it has changed my life in so many ways which i will leave to a future post.
