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.
Sitting at a desk all day not only leads to lots of different injuries, but it also takes years off your life. One option for this is to buy a standing desk. This means that instead of sitting all day you will be standing up. This is far healthier and it will also help you keep your weight down. What follows are just a few tips for anyone who is considering buying this type of desk.
Anti-Fatigue Mats. Anyone who uses standing desks should seriously consider an anti-fatigue mat. These mats are designed to help provide cushioning for your feet which will in turn greatly help your body. These mats are designed to be used in any work environment where you will be standing for any length of time so they are ideal accessories for stand up desks. They work by not only providing cushioning but also a gentle rebound that will encourage you to move your leg muscles, helping the blood flow and reducing the effort your heart needs to take to do its normal functions.
