With more of us leading sedentary lifestyles (sitting down for 8 hours a day, travelling in cars), obesity, heart disease and diabetes is on the rise. So what does this have to do with office furniture?

Standing desks have been around for years (Charles Dickens wrote much of his work whilst standing)! Over the years standing desks have become less common in typical workplace settings – until now! Many modern versions are adjustable, so that you can change the height of the desk and alternate between sitting and standing.

There are a variety of benefits to choosing sit/stand work desks (for employees, creativity and productivity):

  1. Standing Lowers Your Risk of Weight Gain and Obesity
  2. Using a Standing Desk May Lower Blood Sugar Levels
  3. Standing May Lower Your Risk of Heart Disease
  4. Standing Desks Appear to Reduce Back Pain
  5. Standing Desks Help Improve Mood and Energy Levels
  6. Standing Desks May Even Boost Productivity
  7. Standing More May Help You Live Longer
