Advertorial post with gifted item
Since I’m working from home and remotely, using my laptop, I often find myself sitting at the dinner table, typing away (just like at this very moment) and bang! Here comes a middle back or shoulders pain. I don’t have a desk, I often just sit on the couch when working. Mistake. We, who work by a desk most of the time know this all very well. And yes, we are also fully aware that we should stop slouching. Yet, somehow, we keep returning to the wrong posture. It’s super hard to constantly force ourselves to maintain the right posture, isn’t it?
The lovely people behind ili Laptop Stand have sent me a saviour though. Their brand new, innovative and ergonomic laptop stand helps to focus on the work and forget about my posture by simply making me maintain the right sitting position.
How does ili Laptop Stand help
It elevates the laptop so you’ll be practically forced to lift up your head, straighten your back and lower your shoulders. You place your laptop on to the stand and use a wireless keyboard placed on the desk below the stand. Super simple yet brilliant idea!
It’s sustainable too!
Now, as you know me, there has to be something more to it, doesn’t it? The ili Laptop Stand aims to follow the concept of sustainable development by considering its societal, economic and environmental impact. So, the inventors kept the environmental footprint and wastage to a minimum through good design and by choosing materials with environmental certifications, high recyclability credentials or biodegradable characteristics.
Why I love it
- well, obviously the sustainability of the product makes a selling point for me
- it works really effectively – after using it for during my working hours for the last few days, it makes a big difference how my body feels after standing up
- it’s portable, so I can take it with me anywhere and because it’s compact it takes little space
- the design! Somehow it manages to perfectly merge technology with aesthetics and the result is so eye catching
