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.
Most standing desks are very simplistic in design, involving a shelf for a computer, a shelf for a keyboard and sometimes an extra shelf or drawer for other belongings. Some are the length of regular desks, while others are simply made to be computer stations. Depending on the intricacy and features of the desk, the price can range from $150 to many thousands of dollars. The most expensive are the hydraulic adjustable desks that serve as both full-size sitting and standing desks.
When coupled with frequent movement, standing desks offer workers and students an easy way to prevent and resolve back pain. Talk with your employer about creating a more ergonomic work environment.
In addition to more movement and better circulation standing also burns more calories than sitting (about 300 more during the average eight-hour workday). One of the biggest chunks of time spent sitting is during the typical eight-hour work day. Incorporating more movement throughout the office employee`s workday can improve their overall health and happiness.
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.
