Standing Desk Famous Advocates Throughout History
No matter what your profession is, at some point you’re going to have plunk down in front of a computer screen and plug away at some work. Well here at MultiTable.com, we’ve decided to take a stand against sitting… by standing. Investing in standing desks is a smart way to stay healthy and happy.
On average, we sit about 7.7 hours a day. If we can lower that number by just a few hours every day, we’ll notice a change in our health. Standing desks are the answer if you want to stand or sit at your desk. They can raise or lower to your desired height making it easy to swap some of those sitting hours with standing. Standing burns calories, increases energy, tones muscles, improves posture, and increases blood flow. Not only that, it keeps you alert, which can be especially helpful when your post lunch sleepiness seeps in.
Adjustable height standing desks aren’t relatively new in workplace history. In fact, many prominent historical figures were dedicated users of stand-up desks. Perhaps the most famous advocate of standing while working was Thomas Jefferson. He had a unique six-legged tall desk that he used to draw up some of the most famous architectural achievements that we know him for today. Jefferson designed buildings like the Virginia State Capitol as he stood. Other famous leaders such as Otto van Bismarck and Winston Churchill were also avid fans of the stand-up desk.
Standing, besides keeping you healthy, can help get your creative thoughts in order. Charles Dickens wrote many of his famous stories while standing at an adjustable height workstation. The cultural icon, Ernest Hemingway, was known to write some of his best prose from a stand-up desk. Here he is using a stand-up desk in Malaga, Spain.
