We’ve seen the headlines that claim sit-to-stand desks are great for our health and productivity and that sitting is the new smoking. But what are those benefits and why is sitting so bad for our health?
How much time do we spend sedentary?
Lower Blood Sugar Levels
Studies show that using a standing desk at work can lower blood sugar levels, especially after lunch.
Improve Mood and Energy Levels
Studies find that standing desks can lower feelings of stress and fatigue, while improving mood and energy levels.
Reduce Back Pain
Several studies show that standing desks can dramatically decrease chronic back pain caused by prolonged sitting.
Lower Your Risk of Heart Disease
It is widely accepted that the more time you spend sitting, the greater your risk of developing heart disease.
Lowers Your Risk of Weight Gain and Obesity
This one is easy. Standing burns more calories than sitting and helps digestion.
Though it will take some getting used to, standing while working will not hinder work performance. Because of their increase to mood and energy levels they may even boost productivity!
Research suggests that reduced sitting time may lower your risk of dying early and therefore help you live longer.
