How a Standing Desk Can Help You Become More Productive and Creative

Standing desks have become increasingly popular for both work and home use in an era when sitting is considered the new smoking. It is due to the numerous advantages they provide for human health and creative activities. Is it true that they are so efficient?

According to research, approximately 80% of office workers spend the majority of their workday sitting. Furthermore, when they return home, they continue to sit.

Because our bodies are designed to adapt to anything, a curved pose with a hand supporting the chin may eventually appear convenient as well. Nonetheless, such comfort may come at the expense of your health.

Is Standing More Productive Than Sitting?
Every person has an object in his or her home or workplace that poses a threat to his or her life. Who would have thought that a regular chair could be harmful to one's health?

The harm done by prolonged sitting is so severe that it is difficult to compensate. Our bodies are not anatomically or genetically designed for sitting, and the chair became popular as a piece of furniture only about two centuries ago.

Sitting for more than 10 hours per day is as bad for your health as smoking, and immobility is not the issue here. Sitting for long periods contributes to:

• Metabolic suppression;
• An increase in the risk of developing cardiovascular disease;
• Increase in the development of diabetes;
• The appearance of osteochondrosis, thrombosis, and l lymphocytosis;
Development of obesity, haemorrhoids, and prostatitis.

Numerous studies show that standing while working can significantly improve outcomes and prevent the development of many of the health issues listed above. That is why it is critical to organize your workspace properly and to consider purchasing a standing desk and a height-adjustable chair.

Given the variety of standing desks available these days, you may be perplexed as to which to purchase. Progressive Desk is a great place to learn about the most important details about each model.

Do Standing Desks Improve Productivity And Creativity?
The most effective way to avoid the problem of prolonged sitting is to avoid sitting at all. Working while standing is the best variant.

About a century ago, most office workers stood while performing various tasks. Standing has many benefits:

• It allows the large cortex muscles to work;
• It reduces the load on the back by half when compared to sitting;
• It increases mental activity and, as a result, creativity;
• It reduces stress, allowing a person to better focus on task solutions;
• It burns calories: on average (for example, working for eight hours will burn you 500 kilocalories).

Standing has numerous advantages. To enjoy them, you must follow certain guidelines:

• Stand barefoot or in comfortable footwear on a special mat.
• Determine the ideal height for a standing desk. To find it, bend your hands so that your elbows form a 90-degree angle. This height will be regarded as the most suitable for you.

Remember that standing for an extended time is also bad for your health. As a result, the best way out is to switch positions for different types of work. In terms of productivity, standing is best for monotonous work, while sitting is best for work requiring extreme concentration.
