Many of us now know that sitting at your desk for 40+ hours a week, is not the best option for your personal health.  It increases the risk of diabetes, obesity, and heart disease.  Thankfully many furniture manufacturers have started to take notice in recent years, and have since produced some great standing desk options.

Standing desks have been said to offer the following health benefits:

  • - Increased energy
  • - The ability to burn more calories
  • - Standing Desks may help blood sugar levels return to normal more quickly after eating. (which in turn helps keep energy levels up, regulates hormones, and promotes good metabolism)
  • - Improved productivity
  • - Standing Desks can reduce the risk of shoulder and back pain
  • - Greater work collaboration.  Employees are more likely to interact, when they are already in a standing position

Of course too much of anything can be harmful.  The desk user should try using a standing desk for small increments at first, typically for two to four hours a day.  It is important to start with these shorter increments in the beginning, and listen to your body.  Don't force yourself to stand too long.  Gradual transition is key.

In addition, make sure to focus on your posture, and stand as straight as you can.  Make sure to position your computer screen at eye level, 20-30 inches away from your face.  Wrists should be flat on your desk, and your arms relaxed close to a 90 degree angle.  Always make sure to wear comfortable shoes, therefore not shifting your weight around.

Lastly, make sure to not place all of your weight on one foot, and avoid locking your knee.  This can strain your lower back and neck.  Leaning over can also cause additional back strain.
