Black Friday Tip - Check out...

We have all seen the dangers of sitting too much, and in today's world where most of us are working in front of a computer, we do a lot of sitting! It is no wonder that sitting for long periods of time is bad for you. Articles like this one by WebMD show how it can be bad or your heart, mind, and can even lead to an increased risk of diabetes. However, there is a way that you keep your blood flowing while working on a desk, with a STANDING DESK!

Sitting too much? These are the dangers of sitting all-day

The Mayo Clinic recently wrote in an article that research linked sitting for extended periods of time with a growing list of health concerns. So many of us, almost 70% of those who work at a desk all day, sit for the majority of our workday! If you are part of that 70%, you need to pay attention. Sitting extensively has been linked to the following health concerns:

If you have a family history of any of the health issues in the list above, you need to make sure to avoid sitting all day! Well, what can be done about it? Mainly... stay active daily after work.

But what if you have to be at a desk all day while working? Here are a few tips that can help while you work:

Take regular breaks

Every 20 to 30 minutes, take a break, stand and stretch. Doing this allows your blood to freely flow to your extremities and allows your eyes to relax. Remember to not look at your phone during these breaks! Relax your mind as often as you can. This is a great time to use the restroom, get water, get social interaction, and rest your eyes.

Stand up

One of the easiest ways to avoid the dangers of sitting too much is to stand up while you work! There are options everywhere now to make this happen, from stand up desks to electric adjustable desks. If you can, get a stand-up desk to freely stand and sit, all while working at your desk. A standing desk is an investment worth making! Keep in mind that you will also need an office chair designed for a standing desk. Again, our personal top picks are found here.

Take walks

One of the best ways to not only increase bloodflow, but also to improve your mood, which inevitably leads to better performance at work, is to walk! Whether you simply walk to your car and back, to the bathroom that's a little further away, or to the vending machine for a healthy snack, walking is a great way to fight the effects of sitting.

Watch your posture

Make sure, above everything, that your desk and chair are set up at the right height to encourage good posture, which will relieve back and neck pain. So many of us think we are comfortable, but our desks and chairs are set up in a way that encourage bad posture, leading to neck and back strains, as well as carpal tunnel syndrome. For a great video by WSJ on how to set up your work-station for great posture, I encourage you to watch this video.

Now, to what you came for, let's look at the benefits of riding a stationary bike, and at how many calories you burn on a stationary bike. Let's get started.

To begin, a standing desk can do the following for you!:

  1. It can lower your risk of weight gain by keeping you active

  2. It burns many more calories while you work

  3. It lowers your risk of heart disease with increased blood flow

  4. It lowers your risk of diabetes, which is raised by sitting

  5. It decreased back and neck pain

  6. It improves your energy and your mood, as shown by many different studies

  7. With a better mood and more energy, it increases your productivity!
