The Truth Behind Standing Desks

Height-adjustable desk — why should you care?
The world has been changing rapidly over a year. Everything has changed, especially how and where we do our tasks, work, study or learn! Work-from-home has been a reality for us that has now evolved into a hybrid work model.

We have adapted to the changing workplace trends but overlooked other aspects that affected our lives.

Zero commutes. Long Hours Of Work. Erratic Food Patterns. Sedentary Lifestyle. All of these have had both positive and negative impacts on our work-life balance, mental wellbeing and physical health. In addition, other challenges that we face are the inability to focus, work inefficiency, burnout and more.

We are constantly on a quest for solutions to our challenges due to our new coerced lifestyle because we desperately want to be in a better place - both at work and life. The post-pandemic period is a distant reality in our country due to the pace of vaccination administration, but what we could do instead is adapt to this situation by making minor changes in our life.

We’ve made these plans before yet constantly end up giving up on a few or most of these due to the level of impact that work currently has in our lives. The line between work and life has become so blurred that it almost has become nonexistent.

Changing the way we work will help us overcome the challenges that work has created in achieving our personal goals and growth.

The Healthier Way To Work

Why Use a Standing Desk?

Sitting or lying down for an extended period of time raises the chances of developing chronic health conditions like heart disease, diabetes, and some cancer like the above research highlights.

Sitting for long periods of time can also be detrimental to your mental health. Being active is not as difficult as you may believe. There are several easy ways to incorporate physical activity into your daily routine.

By introducing a standing desk into your workstation, you can alleviate these potential mental and physical health issues. Creating an environment where you can actively move while working by switching between standing and sitting periodically can reduce the amount of physical stress on the body.

Benefits of Standing Desk

Boost Your Energy

Using a standing desk allows you to get the movement you need to improve your strength and alertness by increasing circulation and bringing oxygen to your brain.

Uplift Your Mood

Those who sit for long periods of time show more signs of psychological distress than those who sit for shorter periods of time. It's been shown that standing at your desk will improve your mood and relieve depression, exhaustion, and stress.

Improve Posture

Sitting for long periods of time can be harmful to your posture as well as your health. A standing workstation allows you to flex as you work, which is good for your posture and performance.

Standing desk environments encourage a relaxed attitude and open communication with a coworker.

Develops Creative Thinking

A stand-up desk helps you connect with your creative side. During brainstorming sessions and team meetings, a small change in posture increases blood flow to the brain, allowing you to operate at maximum efficiency.
