Improve Your Health by Sitting and Standing

Using a sit-stand desk or sit-stand chair allows you to quickly adjust your workstation throughout the day. This quick and simple change lets you sit or stand easily, whenever you need. Because of this, a sit-stand desk has many benefits you may not yet know about. So, if you’re on the fence about using a sit-stand desk at work or in your home office, look at these health benefits it can offer:

Benefits of Sitting and Standing at Work

Improves Posture

Many people have poor posture when sitting at a desk all day long. Alternating between sitting and standing at work can greatly improve your posture. Improved posture will give your spine and lower back an occasional break, reduce the stress and strain on your neck and shoulders, and decrease muscle fatigue. 

Reduces Stress and Strain

As previously discussed, using a sit-stand desk or sit-stand chair reduces the stress and strain on your body. This includes your neck, shoulders, upper back, and lower back. Standing at work realigns your spine, which relieves the pressure on the lower part of your body. Likewise, having the flexibility to sit for short periods as well can give you the rest you need to avoid overexerting your muscles. 

Increases Productivity

When you alternate between sitting and standing at work, you can increase your productivity throughout the day. This is because you’re less likely to experience boredom, eye strain, stress, or fatigue. Standing while working can refocus your attention, improve your mood, and help you recommit to the task at hand.

Lowers Your Risk of Health Problems

Alternating between sitting and standing at work can lower your risk of health problems. By reducing the strain on your neck, shoulders, and lower back you can reduce your risk of aches and pains, muscle strains and spasms, pain and inflammation, and stiffness.
