If you work a standard 9-5 desk job, you know that sitting down for prolonged periods of time can get tiring. The average working American spends nearly 95% of a common workday in a seated position. This is detrimental because our bodies are designed to be in motion rather than to stay static. Even chewing a piece of gum burns more calories than the calories you burn while sitting.
However, there is a solution that is growing popular among the workplace: adjustable height desks. These desks give you the flexibility to alternate between sitting and standing throughout the workday. This way, you’re still able to focus on work while getting the movement you need.
When you shift between sitting and standing, your metabolism is accelerated, which burns more calories. Alternating positions also relieves stress and strain on certain body parts and comforts the muscles in your neck, shoulders and back. There are numerous reviews online from adjustable height desk users who confirm that since switching from sitting to standing, they feel less stressed and more focused on tasks. Adjustable height desks can also be helpful in opening the lines of communication between staff, which contributes to a higher overall morale of the company.
