Sitting kills. That’s the headline you’ve seen on everywhere – news, articles, books and even research papers over the past few years. In 2010, researchers published a study that found sitting for just an hour increased one’s risk of all-cause and cardiovascular disease mortality, and other studies have linked prolonged sitting to depression, heart disease, diabetes and the most crucial effect is poor circulation.
This already affect to daily long-hour workout won’t even save you.
#1 Standing Desk
Research shows that working upright can help correct poor postureand tone your stomach and legs, all without ruining your focus, as well as increase energy and reduce hunger. But being on your feet for long poses its own risks: it inhibits proper circulation and adds pressure to your hips, legs and spine which damages joints and increases lower-back-pain. And, unfortunately, research shows that sitting once or twice throughout the day won’t offer relief.
It is best recommended to apply working with adjustable working desk with ergonomic desk. To spare some working time by working while standing can give so much benefit instead of just sitting for long hours. Let’s start living productive!
#2 Ergonomic Chair
The ergonomic chair – although it may look like a normal office chair, it is customizable in various ways and are designed to support your lower back and promote good posture – perhaps, the healthiest way to spend the workday, especially when paired with short bouts of standing and walking.
Most office workers do not properly adjust their chair to fit their body, and a 2012 comprehensive scientific review on office chairs discovered that after volunteers were given an ergonomic model and instructions on correct posture and usage, like relaxing their shoulders and adjusting the seat according to their height, most of their previous musculoskeletal symptoms resolved.
The Perfect Day || Sit, Stand & Walk
Despite the ergonomic chair’s many benefits, it’s not perfect, and spending too much time in one can, indeed, be as bad as smoking. That said, here’s what the ideal nine-to-five grind should look like.
Everything in moderation. Because the standing desk and chairs each have benefits and drawbacks, the key, experts say, is to alternate between standing and sitting. A height-adjustable desk or workspace converter is the perfect solution.
Research is ongoing as to how long you should sit or stand at work, but a recent comprehensive analysis says to stand for a total of two hours a day and slowly ramp up to four. The key is to accumulate those four hours in chunks.
According to Alan Hedge, a professor of ergonomics at Cornell, the proper sit, stand, walk ratio for each half-hour of work is 20:8:2—sit for 20 minutes, stand for eight, and finish with a two-minute walk around the office. That rotation gives you the positive posture benefits of both sitting and standing without the painful consequences of doing either for a long time.
