We spend more time behind our desks than ever before, and experts now agree that some of those hours should be spent standing instead of sitting. While it may be too much to expect anyone to stand all day, here are some great reasons for doing at least some of your desk work in the upright position:
Standing increases blood flow, which in turn makes the brain more alert. This improves concentration and cuts down on that mid-afternoon sleepy feeling.
Standing provides opportunities for eye-level discussion with other co-workers as they pass by, even if it’s just for a few minutes. This improves inter-office communications by increasing real-time engagement and cutting down on email.
Improved Core Strength and Posture:
Standing increases core strength, which goes hand-in-hand with good posture. It can also relieve the back stress or pain that often comes with sitting in a chair for eight hours a day.
