Why are Standing Desk in Popular Demand in 2014?

Sit Stand Work Stations

If you haven’t bought a standing desk this year, you’re in for a treat. Many workers that have made the transition have preference towards standing desk rather than a regular office desk. There’s something exciting about trying something new and for those suffering work injuries, the  standing desk offer something new that’s good for your health.

The standing desk can help you improve your posture and reduce your work fatigue. By using a standing desk, you can reduce lower back pains as well as shoulder pains. Combine that with regular exercise and you can keep your body in great shape. Add a mat under your standing desk to add extra cushion to your feet. Remember, you will be standing all day.

When you stand at a desk all day, you will notice yourself not slouching as much and your attitude will be more positive. Do a couple of bends, squats and stretches along the way and you will be more than fine.

If you are worried you will not be able to stand all day, you can always purchase a locus seat. What is a locus seat? A locus seat is an adjustable seat that helps one stand and lean safely and properly, when using a standing desk.
