Holiday Crafting With An Adjustable Standing Desk
by Kenny Rhoads
Crafting around the holidays using an adjustable standing desk makes the entire process easier, more convenient and fun. Adjustable standing desks that can be raised or lowered to suit the individual project you are working on relieves back and neck strain too. If you love to make holiday crafts, investing in an adjustable standing desk could be a great gift to give yourself or for someone else and will make their craft-season even brighter.
Different Crafts Benefit From Different Heights
Imagine making some of the following crafts and being able to change the height of the desk’s surface to meet each step of the project. For example, if you are making holiday pillows or quilts, even different size ornaments, small piece applications can be conducted sitting down, with the standing desk at a lower level. Once you have completed enough pieces to begin putting the various pieces together, the standing desk can be elevated to a more appropriate level for larger construction.
Gingerbread houses are another example of a standing desks’ variable height benefits, with smaller portions of the house’s close work being done at a lower level. Once you are ready to ‘build’ the gingerbread house, you will likely want to stand as standing facilitates better access to certain portions of the building process.
Additional Benefits of the Adjustable Standing Desk
Besides offering greater convenience and comfort, making holiday crafts on an adjustable height desk is healthier to use long term. Standing burns calories that sitting lacks. In fact, standing burns two times as many calories as opposed to sitting. Standing also increases stamina, providing more energy to make more craft presents for friends and family, or even to decorate the home.
Other health benefits of using an adjustable height standing desk over time is that they reduce cancer risk by 30%, heart disease by as much as 46%, decrease back, neck and shoulder pain and eliminates carpel tunnel problems. All in all, crafting for the holidays using a height adjustable standing desk will help you get projects done quicker and more conveniently than conventional desks can provide.
