pprk. Desks. October 27th , 2017.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
