Reminder! Sitting all day is bad for you!
You probably read that and said “duh”, but it’s WAY too common to do it without even realizing! While you are working and caught up in a project or managing 100 emails, you are sitting at your desk letting the hours pass by.
According to various different studies, including research conducted through Mayo Clinic, sitting for long periods increases your risk of death through cardiovascular disease. It also leads to possible “increased blood pressure, high blood sugar, excess body fat around the waist, and abnormal cholesterol levels”.
These facts are scary, but they don’t have to be true of your life.
A sit-stand desk with height adjustable features that allow you to easily move between working positions is the solution you need. With the use of a simple reminder app, you’ll never forget when it’s time to move that desk vertically and enjoy productivity from a healthy, standing position.
The best way to combat these frightening statistics related to sitting, is to stand. It seems simple, but it is more important to realize the fact that an hour-long evening workout, isn’t enough to outweigh the cardiovascular risks of a full day at a seated desk.
Instead (or in addition to), it’s important that every hour to half-hour, you fix your desk to a standing position. Start slow and adapt your body into a 50/50 ratio of sitting to standing. Check your posture for an engaged spine to achieve proper ergonomics.
