We’ve heard it for years, sitting too much is bad for your health. We often remind our kids, or colleagues to get up, go outside and get some fresh air, but we don’t always take that advice for ourselves.
Luckily now, many have strayed away from the old-fashioned traditional desks, and have opted for the new standing desk. The standing desk, also known as the Sit/Stand desk, offers many benefits to your physical and mental health.
Let’s take a minute to discuss the advantages of the standing desk.
First for the physical benefits:
- Reduces back pain.
- Lowers the risk of heart disease.
- Lowers blood sugar levels, especially after lunch.
- Reduces the risk of weight gain and obesity.
- May help you live longer.
Now for the mental health benefits:
- Boosts productivity.
- Improve mood and energy levels.
- Positive influence on overall wellbeing.
Reducing sedentary time can improve physical, metabolic, and even mental health. Sitting less and standing more is such an important lifestyle change.
