Live a Healthier Lifestyle With a Standing Desk

Office jobs can make for a predominantly sedentary lifestyle, which in turn, makes losing weight more challenging. However, there are ways to incorporate small, but impactful lifestyle changes into your day-to-day work that can help to kick start your journey toward a healthier lifestyle. One of the most effective ways to up your activity and transform your body is by switching from a standard, seated desk to a versatile standing desk that offers an array of benefits for your body and mind.  

Burn More Calorieswoman using a standing desk for a healthier lifestyle

When we think of burning calories, we often think of intense exercise such as going to the gym. However, the key to burning calories is simple, you just need to incorporate more movement and energy expenditure into your day. 

For instance, a 170lb person who spends the day sitting at a desk will only burn roughly 139 calories, but a 170lb person who has a standing desk can burn 186 calories. Furthermore, walking, even if that means walking in place to get some activity into your day can enable that same person to burn up to 324 calories.  

Improve Your Posture

Perhaps what holds you back from achieving your weight loss goals is the discomfort you feel when you try to work out. Many people experience strain and discomfort due to poor posture, which is another factor that can be improved by switching to a standing desk. A standing desk allows you to maintain an upright position, alleviating some of the posture issues you may face — which results in fewer aches that halt your goals when trying to live a healthier lifestyle.
