Employers may also want to follow in the paths of Google and Facebook company heads by incorporating standing desks into their offices. Workers have reported increased energy and productivity throughout the day when standing.
There are also going to be days when you are too tired to stand all day, and then you will be grateful for the ability to put your desk back to a sitting position. The way this works with a lot of desks is that they have two levels that you can keep them at.
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.
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.
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.
