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.
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.
The stand up desk has become very popular in recent years and there are now many options for this type of furniture. If you really want to be healthy you could try a standing desk that comes with a built-in treadmill. That way you can walk or maybe even run while you work; there will never be any more need to go to the gym.
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.
Monitor Arms. If you have a desktop computer at your desk, you will soon notice that a great addition to height adjustable workstations is a monitor arm that is specifically designed to hold your computer monitor. The great thing about these arms is that they can move not only up and down, but side to side as well. If you mount your monitor on one of these arms, you will not have to worry about carefully moving it when you switch between sitting and standing at your desk as it is designed to help you do the job quickly and easily.
