The Standing desk has become far more popular in recent times and many people desk hop nowadays. Who says you need to sit? Maybe you have chronic back pain for example, a herniated disc. Standing might be the most comfortable position for you to be in.
The height is totally adjustable to a person standing or sitting.
Research has now shown that standing after a meal allows the blood sugar levels to return to normal faster than it would if you were sitting. There is even a teeny, tiny amount of evidence to say you burn off few more calories standing.
Standing instead of sitting is thought to reduce the risk of back and shoulder pain. We know that sitting is associated with a higher risk of diabetes, cardiovascular disease, cancers, obesity and premature death. Would you consider standing to reduce your risk?
You might need to also consider what else it might mean for you. A change in work posture habit might lead to developing back leg or foot pain because you aren’t used to it.
