Standing Desks

standing-deskAnother option to make your workstation better for your health is a standing desk. A standing desk is a fully adjustable workstation that allows you to switch between standing and sitting with ease, reducing the amount of time you spend sitting each day. This will help to improve your posture and reduce the amount of time that you have to hunch over a computer.

Obviously, you shouldn't go to the opposite extreme and spend all day standing at work, as this could worsen your back pain and even lead to other problems, in your knees, for example. However, having the ability to alternate between sitting and standing throughout your workday could reduce the strain on your back, neck, and shoulders. It will also help to reduce your risk of obesity and conditions such as cardiovascular disease.
