    Promising review: "This standing desk floor mat feels wonderful under my feet, better than any Iโ€™ve tried in stores. Iโ€™ve been looking for a long time to find one that I thought was comfortable and looked nice. It doesnโ€™t slide and the beveled edges help from tripping over it.

    2. An ergonomic desk mat with a built-in roller ball, massage points, and support ramps designed to keep your muscles engaged.,

    Promising review: "How to begin? What words to use? I can hardly explain the revolution that has come to my world with the arrival and constant use of the Genius Mat. I am tempted to take it out of its natural habitat (my cube) and use it while driving but, alas, no, my newfound intellect instantly blasts back: 'Fool, worm, you cannot do that! You would be tempted to mock the lack of brilliant driving skills of others on the road, enraging them, causing them to careen to and fro, taking others into the guardrail, or worse. No, you must restrict the Genius Mat's range to the confines of your cube. Use this incredible power to wow your clients and coworkers. But do so with humility for anyone can so benefit from this gift just by purchasing a Genius Mat for themselves. You are not nearly so bright as you currently imagine.' And with this corrective response, I have instead taken a deep breath and posted this review for the benefit of all. Please, share with me the broadening of horizons and the clarifying of reality that concurrently arrives with placing a Genius Mat under your feet. I leave you, my friends, to contemplate your next move." โ€”George Emerson, author, Murphy's Law: The Ebb and the Flood

    3. A standing desk mat featuring 3/4 inches of nonslip memory foam cushioning to keep your feet from aching by 5 p.m.,

    (And for your hard-working loved ones โ€“ or maybe even yourself โ€“ these gifts for people who spend all day at their desks are quite honestly perfect.)

    Promising review: "This standing desk floor mat was woven by angels, sculpted by the reanimated corpse of Michelangelo, and sealed with Superman's laser vision. When I stood upon it, my feet no longer felt attached to my body. My physical form carried no weight. There was the sensation of floating, my body effortlessly held upright by the essence of time and space. My consciousness journeyed into a deeper level of meaning. Like a fledgling bird of the universe, I spread my wings and tested the limits of my transcendence. Nice mat. Very comfortable. Well worth the money." โ€”JOE K

    Get it from Amazon for $37.99+ (available in three sizes and nine colors).

    4. A sustainably made FluidStance balance board with a 360-degree tilt so you can burn some cals while getting work done throughout the day.

    Promising review: "I came across this balance board and was hesitant to purchase it because of the price, but after doing some research, I decided to go for it and WOWWWOWOOWOW Iโ€™m so glad I did! This board is amazing and so much fun to use! It keeps my core and lower body muscles constantly engaged without much effort. I am able to rock back and forth, side to side, twist around, and stretch my back (while holding onto desk) with ease. I even like twisting around while on my tippy-toes! It is fairly easy to balance on and gives you so much fluidity with every movement. I am addicted to using it and have noticed that I feel more energized and focused while Iโ€™m on it; I do not get as tired around 1โ€“2 p.m. as I used to from sitting down all day. I feel it has also been helpful in alleviating my back pain and my back does not feel as sore at the end of the day." โ€”Patty_Cakes

    Get it from Amazon for $159 (available in four colors).

    5. A Topo standing desk mat that promises to leave you feeling energized and productive, even after standing on it for eight hours.,

    Promising review: "I WORSHIP THIS TOPO STANDING DESK MAT. I bought a desk riser for a stand-only desk at my dresser...and my back was DEAD after a week. Did a LOT of research about mats to stand on because, with the prices, I wanted to make the right investment. This Topo standing desk mat came back leaps and bounds above all in reviews and still has a competitive price...and I swear Iโ€™d pay double. It massages, engages, relieves pain and pressure, and allows me to spend eight-plus hours on my feet in a stationary area. PHENOMENAL. Quality is unbelievable." โ€”Elizabeth

    Get it from Amazon for $99.

    6. Or a mini Topo standing desk mat for if you want something that'll take up less space but still be just as effective.,

    (And here are 31 other things to get if youโ€™re ready to go all-in on your home office.)

    Promising review: "Have you seen that Rick and Morty episode from season 3, 'Morty's Mindblowers'? You know that clip where Rick creates a square that's perfectly level, and after Morty stands in it, nothing else is ever good enough again? That's basically how I feel about my mini Topo standing desk mat. It arrived on a Thursday afternoon, I pulled it out, set it up under my standing desk, and had the best work afternoon of my life. I couldn't wait to come back Friday morning and stand on my Topo Mini, sending out emails to clients like a corporate zombie who can no longer be bothered with eating brains, and just wants to stand in one place instead, reveling in the magic of the Topo Mini. Seriously, it's great. The different angles and shapes are nice, I like being motivated to move around a bit, and the cushion it provides is definitely helping make my transition to a mostly standing desk lifestyle go a lot better. I was a little worried it'd be too small, as it says 5'4" and below, and I'm right at the top of that, but nope, it's spacious and I don't feel at all cramped. Absolutely, totally, completely recommend purchasing this if you're thinking about it." โ€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $69 (available in two colors).

    7. An anti-fatigue desk mat to help relieve pressure and finally give your feet the break they deserve.,

    Promising review: "If you're thinking about buying this standing desk floor mat but aren't sure, heed my words: your back will thank you. I have a lot of tension in my upper back, neck, and shoulders. Even 10โ€“20 minutes standing in a single location has an impact on me. It's amazing how much a little cushion under your feet can help with repetitive tasks." โ€”Jess A.

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99 (available in two colors).

    8. A Fezibo wooden wobble balance board fully equipped with anti-fatigue cushioning and massage points so you can get the *most* out of standing.,

    (Plus, some under-desk storage ideas to keep everything looking nice and tidy.)

    Promising review: "This is the perfect standing desk floor mat for those who work at a standing desk or just stand a lot. The Fezibo's varied 'terrain' somehow makes my feet hungry for movement and I find myself doing something new with my feet (and body) every few seconds. And if you just need to stand on the mat, its density seems perfect; it rescued my knees from my company's hard laminate-on-cement floors. I'm 5'10" and 180 pounds and this mat shows no signs that it will not support me for a long time to come." โ€”Garret

    Get it from Amazon for $64.99+ (available in two sizes and three colors).

    9. A stain-resistant gel mat available in four sizes and 26 colors and designs to stylishly tie together your workspace.,

    Promising review: "I love this anti-fatigue mat! Bought it almost two years ago and it still looks just like the day I bought it. Still very comfortable and I have had no problems at all with the corners rolling up. This anti-fatigue mat has held up so well I'm going to buy another one!" โ€”Jill P.

    Get it from Amazon for $23.99+ (available in four sizes and 27 colors and designs).

    10. A padded foam anti-fatigue mat to ~support~ you (and your feet) through all the hard work you do. We'll stand for that!,

    (If you're looking to replace your current standing desk, here are 13 really great options!)

    Promising review: "I got mine for my stand-up desk at home and it's fantastic. I found myself not wanting to stand very long on my hardwood floors so it was kind of defeating the purpose of having the desk, but now it's much more comfortable to stand for a while. Since I have hardwood floors, I can slide the mat under my desk and still sit at my chair, then slide it out when I stand. My feet sink into it maybe a 1/8" and it's slightly bouncy so I can shift my weight between feet and I can stand for much longer at my desk now. I also don't notice it slipping or anything when I walk away from it and come back to it. Very clean and has a great design. Highly recommend it." โ€”mikev

    Get it from Amazon for $38.99+ (available in four sizes and three colors).

    11. A FlexiSpot mat with massage points and mounds to promote healthy circulation.


    Promising review: "I originally skipped purchasing an anti-fatigue mat because it was an extra expense. My doctor urged me to get one if I was going to be standing a lot. I could tell a huge difference after one day! Itโ€™s lightweight, so easy to scoot out of the way when transitioning to sitting. I also use it under my stability ball and it helps keep it in place while adding extra height. Iโ€™m very glad I made this investment in my overall health." โ€”Amanda K.

    Get it from FlexiSpot for $57.99.

    12. An ergonomic Ninja mat boasting three layers of thick, stain-resistant material and extra-durable backing that you'll want to bring with you everywhere you go., Amazon

    Promising review: "This is a great mat. I used to get back pain while standing. This mat has changed that. It is really thick and feels great. I have had it for just over a month and it still looks brand new. It is also very easy to clean โ€” just wipe it with a damp cloth." โ€”Tammy B.

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99.

    13. And a splurge-worthy Muvmat by aeris mat designed to mimic the feeling of walking through a forest by stimulating your feet with "peaks and valleys" hidden beneath its surface.


    (Side note: Here are 30 non-office products that are still a good idea to keep at your desk.)

    Promising review: "I bought this standing desk floor mat after having back surgery. I thought $150 was a bit much for a standing mat but it was so unlike anything I'd seen before that I decided to try it out and I'm SO happy that I did. I had a lot of foot numbness and muscle tension with my injury and being able to press my foot into different sections of the mat really helped ease the tension I felt. Because of my injury, I can only sit for maybe 20 minutes at a time or less, so this mat has been essential for me! When I'm standing on it I've never had issues with it sliding around, but I am still able to push it out of the way with my foot when I want to sit down." โ€”Mary

    Get it from Fully for $149.
