Health Benefits of Stand Up Desk

6 Benefits of Using a Stand Up Desk

Studies support use of a stand up desk for your overall health

Studies show that people who lead a sedentary lifestyle or sit for long periods at work are more susceptible to heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and a shorter life expectancy. This combination of symptoms is often referred to as “sitting disease”. Even worse, the long-term effects of sitting often are not simply countered by exercise or diet!

Standing while working, even for just 30 minutes at a time (4 hours a day or more) can have a major impact on your health and body, and it’s not difficult to do if you have the right equipment. Sit-Stand desks, sometimes known as standing desks or height-adjustable desks, are all the rage and make it very easy to change posture throughout the day while working. 

  1. Reduce Back Pain
  2. Lower your risk of weight gain and obesity
  3. Lower your blood sugar levels and risk of Type 2 Diabetes
  4. Improve mood and gain energy
  5. Lower your risk of heart disease
  6. Boost your productivity

If you are considering changing to a standing desk, we recommend the RiseUpDesk stand up desk collections. It is recommended that you ease into standing while working short increments.
