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.
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.
What the Standing Desk Can Do for Your Health. Sedentary lifestyles that involve prolonged periods of sitting have been linked to a variety of health problems, including obesity, heart disease and chronic back pain. Our bodies were not designed to be inactive for hours on end. Our biological processes, from metabolism to joint lubrication, rely on movement.
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.
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.
