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.
If you prefer to use a laptop with a separate keyboard and mouse pad, opt for a portable standing laptop desk that will both elevate your laptop to eye-level and provide an additional secure platform to support your laptop and mouse. Using a separate keyboard can be a good idea for laptop users as most laptop keyboards are too small and promote the unnatural, inward shoulder rotation. Also, the use of a separate keyboard can allow users to elevate laptops to a higher, more natural position that promotes proper standing posture.
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.
Another common weak point in traditional is that they often only elevate the entire desk surface. These up/down desks do not improve the standing posture because they typically don`t elevate materials to eye-level. This causes people to hunch over books, documents, and screens while standing - which is of course not beneficial to your back or long-term health.
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.
