Standing Desks

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

We are meant to bend, twist, jump, squat, run constantly throughout the day.Being in any one position for an extended period of time….no bueno.  That being stated, standing desks are great only for short periods of time (10-20 minutes). Our body thrives on movement so continually varying our position is key. (We are hunter-gatherers!)

Understandably it’s annoying but try to set a workstation schedule.

Example-

Vary position every 20 minutes
Lap around the office after an hour of desk work.
8:00am Sit
8:20am Stand
8:40am Squat
9:00am Walk around the office
Repeat
