Why You Should Invest in a Standing Desk

When it comes to remote working, chances are, if you are home all day, you will be moving from one seat to another. Working and living in the same location can lead to the build-up of unhealthy habits.

There are many things you can to help you stay healthy when working from home. Implementing strict routines when it comes to dedicated working and home-life times.

Making the outside of your working hours to do things such as errands or chores will help you to focus on work with fewer distractions. As can packing a lunch to take with you to your working area to avoid the temptation of popping to the kitchen for a snack – that is, unless your kitchen is your working area!

One area it can be easy to neglect when working from home is exercise. Once you take your commute out of the equation plus the walking you would do around your office and immediate working area, you will notice a big difference in the drop of activity you do each day.

Investing in a standing desk when working home can help you get back some of your previous activity levels and help you to remove the need to sit down all day at home and during your working time.

Autonomous.ai have created this infographic which details exactly how beneficial to your health a standing desk can be and why it is a great idea to add this to your home office. If you are worried about not moving around so much, then a standing desk can help you combat that all while keeping you productive during your working day.

    A Healthier Workday: Embracing the Active Lifestyle
    Sedentary behavior has been linked to a myriad of health issues, including obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular problems. Standing desks provide a simple yet effective solution to combat the dangers of prolonged sitting. By encouraging frequent movement and allowing users to alternate between sitting and standing positions, these desks promote an active lifestyle. This increased physical activity not only burns calories but also improves posture, reduces the risk of musculoskeletal disorders, and boosts overall well-being.

    I had a neighbour who swore by her wooden ‘kneeling’ chair’. These days I sit cross-legged on the floor.

    I tend to lean over my desk & that leads to back pain. In fact pretty much anything leads to back pain when you’ve got big boobs! Invest in front fastening bras with lots of back support, that’s my advice!

  • Calvin

    It’s good to have this option, there are desks that convert when you need them to which is nice. Adds flexibility. It’s shocking to see the side effects of prolonged sitting.

  • Linda

    I have been thinking about a standing desk for the health benefits, but they are so much wider than the desk nook that I have right now. Are there any DIY standing desk suggestions?

  • April Yedinak

    I need one of these. My newest job requires me to be at a desk 8-12 hours a day. I swear I can fcel DVTs starting to form. I have been looking into options I can afford. I will say, I laughed when I saw the treadmill option…not for me, I would like to keep my teeth and I know I would flop face first into the desk in 30 seconds!

  • Tamra Phelps

    There not for me, with my disabilities, but I think they’d be great for most people. You get restless if you sit too long and that effects your work.

  • Rosie

    These can be great. I recall when I had a job as a “paste up artist,” we had stand up desks. No problem back then. I also know someone with back problems who keeps one in her law office, she loves it. It can be a good way to maintain strength and agility! I have no office desk/chair, so sit on the floor. I use my ironing board as a table/desk for keeping things that I’m doing that day.
