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.
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 possibilities of a do-it-yourself standing desk end with your creativity. You can stack phone books on top of your current desk and place a board on top of them to hold your monitor, and another board and lower stack of books for your keyboard. You can buy wall shelves and install them at the proper heights for a standing desk. So long as you maintain the proper measurements, you have created a the desk.
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.
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.
