Sitting too much can be harmful as there’s a high risk of diabetes, heart disease, cancer and shorter life span. It sounds dramatic but it’s a fact! We sit at work, in the car and at home, moving only to shift from one seat to another.
Do you know that everytime we sit, there’s numerous factors occured:
- Calorie burning drops to 1 per minute
- Enzymes that help break down fat drop 90%
- Good Cholestrol drops to 20%
- Risk diabetes rises.
Whenever possible, during work, it is advised to get up and take movement breaks throughtout the day. It’s not always easy to just walk away from the task at hand. You might think that sitting for 8 hours straight everyday during work is inevitable but there will always be precautions step for us to have longer span timeline by installing standing desk to help on reducing the time spent sitting during the workday.
Benefits of Standing Desks
Here’s some reasons of why standing desks is one of important work tools for you.
Less Obesity Risk
By working while standing and move around a lot during work is believed to burn more calories. Without us realizing it, working while standing can burn 50 more calories rather than sitting per hour.
FUN FACT : If you stand for three hours a day for five days that’s around 750 calories burnt!
It makes sense that mortality may rise since sitting too much is related to cancer, obesity, heart disease, and diabetes. In 2011, it is stated that Americans increase their life expectancy two years by reducing sitting time from the standard six hours to just three hours per day, instead.
If you want to improve your posture and reduce eye strain, a standing desk is a smart option. It’s important to set it up the right way, though. Your computer screen should sit just above resting eye level, so you have to look up slightly to see it. This keeps you from hunching over or slouching as you tap away on your keyboard. The simple act of standing will also improve your core strength, leading to better overall posture.
