Feeling extra sedentary these days? This standing desk with electric adjustments is majorly marked down. Plus, it has a near-perfect rating from over 1,100 reviewers.

“Like many of you, I’m rolling my face on the keyboard for most of the day, so some standing now and then is important for me,” says a reviewer. “The desk itself is very sturdy. You can climb on top of the desk and raise and lower it without any issue of imbalance or capsizing. (Don’t ask why I know this.) Oh, it is worth mentioning that there is a drawer [where] I can store knickknacks! It’s a perfect size and looks good!”

If you’re looking for something simple yet stylish, this rustic-minimalist desk is for you. Combining metal with a wood detail, it instantly modernizes a space.

“PERFECT! I have been looking for a modern computer desk that is sturdy and ‘nice looking.’ I compared more than 20 different desk options, weighing pros and cons and reading reviews. The conclusion is that I love this desk!,” writes a five-star reviewer.

Already have a work station but want to (literally) elevate it? This desktop riser easily converts your regular desk into a standing desk.

“I wanted to have a standing desk for a while, but I can’t afford it. This desk is cheap but well made. I looked at many items that cost twice as much. I was surprised by this nice product at a very reasonable price,” says a happy shopper. “It’s a solid, quality piece. Everyone in the office has been very impressed by it, especially when I tell them the price point.”

If you have a standing desk, you know that a long workday can be a bit rough on the joints. This padded mat is designed to alleviate pressure, and over 3,500 reviewers give it a near-perfect 4.6-star rating.

“My office was willing to buy me a standing desk for ergonomic reasons, but not a mat. Go figure. So I bought this one. I have three similar mats in my kitchen and they make an immense difference when standing on a hard floor for long periods of time,” says a satisfied reviewer.

If you work at a desk, an ergonomic chair is an absolute must. This one is adjustable in every way imaginable to support you where you need it.

“It’s very sturdy and very comfortable. It has a nice cushion that is the perfect size for me,” says a five-star reviewer. “Also, it’s nice on the back and helps with my posture while working long hours on the computer. I’m able to sit comfortably on the chair for my long meetings.”

If your current chair isn’t cutting it but you don’t want to invest in a task chair, this No. 1 best-seller is for you. Perfect for those who sit for long periods of time, it’s good for sciatica and eases pressure on the tailbone. Oh, and more than 38,000 reviewers give it a near-perfect rating.

“On a long and uncomfortable flight to Hawaii I managed to mess my back and tailbone really bad. I even paid to have a professional massage done because seating was impossibly painful and I work either driving around all day or in my home office. Nothing seemed to help. I considered getting one of those doughnuts cushions for people with “hemorrhoid problems” but was too embarrassed to go to Walgreens looking for one. That’s how I ended up here, looking for some relief. This stuff is magical, like seating on the back of a unicorn while coming down a rainbow. Outstanding quality, doesn’t just squish down when you sit on it,” says a super fan. “Buy it. Your rear end will thank you.”

Keep the blood churning in your lower body, even while you sit for extended periods of time. This under-desk stationary bike has adjustable light resistance so that you can keep pedaling all day.

“This was the best purchase I ever made,” says a five-star reviewer. “It’s foldable to store away easily and it doesn’t weigh that much, which makes it easy to carry. There was no setting up which was also a plus.”

Does your work-from-home space have bad lighting? It may seem like it’s not a big deal, but when you call into that Zoom meeting and your face is completely in shadows, you realize just how dark your space is. This mini ring light clips onto the top of your computer or phone to illuminate your face and have you looking professional for your calls. Plus, it’s great for hiding the fact that you didn’t put on makeup or do your hair.

“By far one of my favorite Amazon purchases! This light packs a punch,” says a happy shopper. “The three light modes are bright and very effective. The rubber grips inside the clip stay secure without budging.”

If working from home means tuning out a lot of distractions, it’s time you invested in a good pair of noise-cancelling headphones. At 56 percent off and with a near-perfect rating from over 1,000 reviewers, this deal can’t be beat!

“This is really worth it! Cost-benefit is spot on and I have paid more for equal or less,” says a self-proclaimed “audiophile” who bought the headphones at full price. “Great rich sound, also. Snug and comfortable. Excellent for what I required — tune out the world and get stuff done without disturbing people with my music or even TV audio. Nobody has to pound on the floors to get me to ‘turn it down!’”
