Standing Desks and Why They're a Great Idea

Back to Blog
We spend an increasing number of hours working behind desks, which has led experts to ask whether some of those hours should be spent standing instead of sitting. Though it may be too much to expect anyone to stand all day, here are some good reasons for doing at least some of your desk work on your feet: Increased Energy: Standing increases blood flow, which in turn causes the brain to be more alert. This improves concentration and cuts down on that mid-afternoon sleepy feeling. Increased Engagement: Standing provides opportunities for discussion with other co-workers as they pass by, even if it’s just for a few minutes, at eye level. 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.
