Standing Desks

The rise of the standing desk, is a wonderful trend to see happen! It is incredibly beneficial to your health to stand more then sit every day.

I have had many many clients switch to a standing desk. Some use it exclusively and have ditched their chairs and some switch back and forth between standing and sitting, there is an app to tell you when to stand or sit too.

I have heard so many great testimonials about how great and more energetic people feel when standing more during the day I am anxious to get a standing desk at home to use when I am on the computer there!

I read the book “Get Up Why Your Chair is Killing You and What You Can Do About It” by Dr. James Levine

Get Up Book

I have to admit I listened to the audio book while driving which made me feel very guilty but since I stand most of my day I got over it! The information on the health benefits of standing more. We are living in a way our bodies were not meant to be used. We are meant to move not go from the car to the desk to the car to the couch. And as an added bonus you burn more calories standing then sitting. Even a 10 minute standing break every hour will be hugely beneficial for anyone!

Just like sitting proper ergonomics are very important while standing! Here is a great diagram from an article 10 reasons why you should switch to a standing desk.
