It’s a bit disheartening that more and more recent studies are showing if you spend lots of time seated you are generally more subject to health problems, will live a shorter life and are less productive than those who spend their days on their feet or moving about.
For most of us there’s no real alternative to being at our desks all day long, so there’s no surprise that more and more us are becoming victims of the ‘butts in seats epidemic’. Luckily, It’s not that hard to combat this epidemic. Doing desk stretches, choosing ergonomic chairs, changing positions throughout the day by using height adjustable desks, making use of more informal type meeting areas and working at counter height tables are great ways to combat the negative affects of sitting.
Height adjustable desks are fantastic as they give users the freedom to easily alternate their position from sitting to standing throughout the day. Alternating to a standing position during the day ensures the electrical activity in your muscles remains active, protecting against metabolic affects that can result in a whole host of dire consequences.
