For anyone that works from home often and has issues focusing I NEED to spread the good word of a treadmill+standing desk. I have such a hard time focusing at home but this is LIFE CHANGING.

Very interested in hearing more about your experience. I have a standing desk but not the treadmill. Which one helps you focus more? I have been contemplating getting the treadmill for some time now.

If you’re contemplating it, try it!! I was spending such a large portion of my day stationary and starting to feel it I’m my heath. This is probably the biggest single impact in my health I could make. So worth it.

How long have you used it?

Can you let us know how you feel in a month or so? Curious if the desk helps long term, or if it is a short term change.

Where can I get one?

I got mine on Amazon but I think Costco was selling a walking pad + standing desk combo

Even just standing desks. Unbelievable great

Make sure your house is clean and lunch is prepped so that you have a clean and clear environment! Make a checklist for the day and reward yourself with short breaks when you know something off the list!
