Don’t you think it’s time to stand up to a culture of sitting?
Our bodies aren’t designed for long periods of sitting, yet between office work, driving and watching TV, we sit up to 15 hours a day. Too much time sitting can increase your risk for health problems such as obesity, diabetes, cancer and heart disease. Incorporating standing and moving into your work life will increase health and alertness.
Standing and staying active is your key to health. Going to the gym, even for several hours, can’t erase the effect of sitting most of the day. To truly make a difference, you need to make standing and moving a part of your everyday life at work.
The benefits of a standing desk will increase your life expectancy and reduce your risk for:
- Weight gain and obesity
- Heart disease
- High blood pressure
- High cholesterol
- Upper back and neck pain
- Depression and low energy
