Why a sit-to-stand desk?
Apart from a well-balanced diet and some exercise, avoiding prolonged sitting seems to be one of the best things you can do for your health.
Studies show that adults who sit for 11 hours or more a day have a 40% increased risk of dying in the next three years than those who sit for less than four hours a day.
Another study found that:
workers who spent an inordinate amount of time sitting at their desks were at a higher risk of developing deep vein thombrosis (DVT).
Exercising a few hours a week doesn’t seem to significantly reduce the downsides of sitting too much.
What are the exact perks of using a standing desk?
Standing intermittently throughout the day is not only better for your health than going to the gym after a day on the office. Standing increases your productivity by enhancing your creativity and focus. But researchers found it also boosts your mood. It increases overall happiness, reduces depression and anxiety.
It also aleviates that sore back of yours, helps you shed pounds, and even cures or prevents diseases. The muscle activity needed for standing seems to trigger important processes related to the breakdown of fats and sugars within the body. When you sit, these processes are delayed, increasing your health risks.
