Tips on Choosing a Standing Desk. Obesity and heart disease are two of the top killers among Americans today. Both of these diseases can be linked to a poor diet and lack of exercise. In today`s environment, we spend most of our time sitting at home, or at the office, and don`t spend enough time being active and moving. Sitting for too long has become a major problem. In fact, many medical professionals are now talking about `sitting disease.` Sitting for too long not only can cause us an early death, but our quality of life can suffer as well. When we sit in the same place for too long, our muscles begin to atrophy. This can lead to serious injuries if we aren`t careful.
Of course, standing all day in one position is almost as bad as sitting all day. Standing desks can be equipped with high stools and footrests to allow you to rest your feet and legs occasionally. As with a normal sit-down desk, it is also important to move around, such as by taking a few minutes to stretch every hour or taking brief walks around the office.
One option to curtail this sitting problem is the standing desk. A standing desk allows you to stand at your desk, with your computer and keyboard raised up to the standing position. Using a standing desk is far healthier than sitting, and will also burn up to three times as many calories.
To incorporate more standing and movement in one`s day, many office workers have switched either full-time or part-time to a standing desk. A standing desk is commonly a cumbersome and expensive investment. Traditional are similar to full-size office furniture and are as portable as a ton of bricks. They are large pieces of furniture that once purchased rarely move from their setup location. Moving these traditional can be quite difficult.
