Do You Want to Live Longer?
Longer Life Expectancy
Did you know that you can live longer simply by standing up more and sitting less? Recent studies show that active people have a longer life expectancy than their stationary counterparts. For this reason, a height adjustable desk is a much smarter choice than a sit-down desk.
Sitting at a desk for long periods of time can actually cause you physical harm. As you sit, fat accumulates in your heart, liver brain and other organs. Your muscles lose their tone and definition, and your body tires more easily. The potential for weight gain is tremendous for workers who sit all day.
Better Overall Health
The twenty-first century lifestyle is more sedentary than ever before. Overweight, obesity and diabetes are also more prevalent. A healthy diet and regular exercise are still the best ways to lose weight and prevent diabetes, and a standing desk can help, especially if you are not used too much exercise. A stand-up desk encourages you to be active throughout the day, and movement is a good way to stay fit and healthy during desk work.
Sitting is not a natural position. Long periods of sitting behind a standard desk can cause substantial problems including backaches, neck and shoulder pain, leg cramps, sciatica, headaches and vision issues. Standing all day can be painful too, especially if you are not accustomed to it. An adjustable height desk is the best solution.
An ergonomic desk makes you feel better, and when you feel better, you work better. A standing desk helps you be more productive at work. It also encourages interaction with your coworkers and colleagues.
Sit-Stand desks are suitable for private offices, executive offices and cubicle dwellers.
