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.
When sitting, you can use it to prop up your feet but the real benefits are seen when you are standing. If your feet begin to get tired or you simply feel you need to reposition but remain standing, you can simply place one of your feet on top of the foot stool, which is a very natural position for most people, and will help you stay mobile, increasing your energy and productivity.
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.
It is a good idea that you buy a standing desk that can be converted back to a sitting desk. This is especially important for the first few weeks when you begin using the standing desk. It can get very tiring and so the ability to go back to sitting for an hour or so will be very welcome; especially at the end of the day.
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.
