A lot of people sit down. They are sitting at home in front of television, sitting on bleachers at games, sitting in the car on the way to and from those games, and sitting at work — and back and forth from work. The list goes on but you’re never going to be sitting down on your way to health.

A sedentary chair. Sedentary isn’t suitable for life and well being. Life is about movement and motion. Being sedentary is about stagnating. Health relies on movement and motion. Sedentary lifestyles are associated with an increased risk of diabetes , cardiovascular disease, cardiovascular mortality and death from all causes. The association ‘s strength is most focused on diabetes. National Institutes of Health list several risks associated with a sedentary existence:

  • Obesity
  • Heart disease
  • High blood pressure
  • Stroke
  • Metabolic syndrome
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Certain cancers
  • Osteoporosis

And there are many as well. The argument is that eliminating a sedentary lifestyle is a must for your wellbeing. Why do you do that, then? Initially you might say I can’t help it — I need to drive to work, the bleachers are the only place to sit to the games. While driving can not be stopped, it can be basically something else. I recommend you try to get your buck the biggest bang.

Advantages of Standing Desks

Apart from a reduction in the risk of conditions noted above by the National Health Institutes, there are other advantages to being more at work.

More inclined to move for tasks-Naturally, when you’re already standing, you ‘re more inclined to walk to the printer, get that extra glass of water, take your lunch outside, or go to their desk to talk to a colleague instead of having a conversation over a phone. Less sedentary equals improved health. The possibility of more motion along with the additional strength and muscle activity it takes to stand during the day causes more calories to be consumed by the body. Despite the fact that the daily caloric burn may not be excessive, done every day for many days and years at a time, this can add up. Big improvements come from regular, incremental measures.

Improved bone strength-Bones get stronger with workouts and weight-bearing activities. This involves sitting and standing. What is it so important? Osteoporosis is a condition in which bone density is diminished and it is more likely to break or fracture for no reason or with light daily activity. You need your bones’ strength to remain intact all your life, if you want consistency. To sit all day doesn’t work for you against this target, it does stand up.

Better lymphatic movement-The lymphatic system moves waste all over your body, and out. It is vital to your health. When you are unable to remove the waste, otherwise you are toxic. The lymph system is guided by motion, by the body movement. And you have to shift to get it to function properly and flush contaminants from your body.It’s easier to stand the entire day and the related lifestyle encourages lymphatic activity and well being — helping you get rid of waste.

Better ergonomics-Standing at a desk, in my experience, promotes better posture. Better posture equals health and a better life. Computer displays are most commonly mounted at or conveniently adjusted to eye level. Placements in the forearm and wrist are easily modified or have been properly tailored to the exact person. Unfortunately, there is no back support which promotes the unconscious rolling of the shoulders forward and down while doing the work.

There are many things in life that work against you and your health; one of them is the prolonged sitting. Somewhat you can do about this. Choose a desk which is standing. When your employer gives you problems, go to your chiropractor and get a notice, and don’t think it’s a valid reason for not having enough space. There are modifiable units that can be seated on an existing desk and modified as required to function as a standing desk.
