Heart disease and obesity are the two leading causes of death in America today. Poor diet and insufficient exercise can lead to both of these diseases. Today’s society is more comfortable sitting down at home or in the office and less active. Sitting too long is a problem. Many medical professionals now refer to’sitting disorder’. Sitting too long can lead to early death and can also affect our quality of living. Our muscles can atrophy if we are seated in one place too long. If we don’t take care, this can cause serious injuries.
Standing desks can be used to reduce the sitting problem. Standing desks allow you to stand at your desk with your keyboard and computer raised to a standing position. Standing desks are far more healthy than sitting and can help you burn three times as much calories. Werkvrij – Zit Sta Bureaus
These days, standing desks are very popular and come in many sizes and shapes. Many come with an optional accessory such as a treadmill or exercise bike. However, I don’t think it is wise to sweat at work.
Standing desks are a great option if you want to be able to stand or sit. There are dangers to sitting too long, but there is also danger to standing for extended periods of time. Standing for long periods of time can cause extreme fatigue and even blood flow problems. It is best to be able to stand when you feel energetic and then lie down when you feel tired. Personally, I prefer to sit in the afternoon and stand during the morning.
These “sit-to-stand” desks can be quite expensive. It is worth looking at all options to find the right one for you. Standing desks can be adjusted manually (the entire table is on hinges) or electronically. The whole desk can be raised or lowered to meet your needs.
It is important that you find a desk that is affordable (desks can be very expensive), but that can also withstand the weight that you intend to add to it. Werkvrij – Zit Sta Bureaus
