Enhance Your Standing Desk Experience
by Kenny Rhoads
Standing desks have become increasingly popular these days with the release of numerous research studies that demonstrate how harmful it is to sit for hours on end. Cornell University, the American Cancer Society and the American Diabetes Society, to name a few, have all indicated long hours spent working at computer-based activities can shorten one’s life span by triggering diseases such as obesity, hypertension, heart disease and some cancers. Further, studies indicate that using a standing desk reduces health risks by burning more calories and facilitating movement, all of which creates a healthier work style and increases longevity.
If you are one of the millions who have changed to a standing desk, or are thinking of changing to a standing desk, some useful guidelines are listed below to help you make the transition from sitting to standing for the better part of your workday. You will likely be amazed at how much more comfortable and energized you will feel by making this change.
