So you’ve bought your holiday lodge, but family members need to get online occasionally and then stay there too long? Well, all that could become a thing of the past if you invest in a Varidesk for them, and it could mean they’re not tempted to settle in their seat for the duration, but can be out on the deck sipping a drink with you in no-time, work and internet surfing done in a jiffy.

They’re really healthy too – standing desks don’t just lower your blood pressure, increase your blood flow, reduce the risk of Cardiovascular Disease, reduce the symptoms of lower back pain and improve your posture. They also burn around 50 additional calories an hour whilst you use one.

You can use it seated if you need to though – the simple design takes you from sitting to standing in just 3 seconds and comes fully assembled with no installation needed. It helps prevent the back pain alongside many other health benefits. It’s a bit pricy and you’ll need to check the measurements of the surface you want to place it on, but it’s a solid investment in safeguarding your leisure time. Of course, the perfect place to have one would be at home first to test it out – you might find the time-saving really interesting and you’ll feel better for it too!  The Varidesk Pro Plus 36 is available in white or black at £365 from
