Many office workers are seeking to reduce the risk of back pain and other health problems by switching out their standard desks for standing desks. These allow you to maintain an upright position throughout the day and encourage more movement, as you`re already on your feet.
Good Tips for Choosing a Standing Desk for Your Home Office. You may not realise it but sitting around the entire day is killing you. Humans have evolved to be moving around all day, and it will take many centuries of office work before the body adapts to the change. This means that we are poorly adapted to the modern work environment.
Sales people often like to stand when making phone calls and pitching to prospective clients, so speak to sales people that you know to see how they adapt to standing at work. It takes a few weeks to get used to the standing desk. Once you are used to it you won`t even realise you are standing anymore.
The possibilities of a do-it-yourself standing desk end with your creativity. You can stack phone books on top of your current desk and place a board on top of them to hold your monitor, and another board and lower stack of books for your keyboard. You can buy wall shelves and install them at the proper heights for a standing desk. So long as you maintain the proper measurements, you have created a the desk.
If you are looking at standing desks, one of the best options is actually getting one that allows the user to sit or stand. We know the dangers of too much sitting; however there also is a danger if you are standing all day long. Standing for hours not only causes extreme fatigue, but issues with blood flow can also result. The ideal solution is the ability to stand when you have energy, and then sit when you get tired. For myself, I like to stand at work in the morning for 2-3 hours, and then sit during the afternoon.
