Stand up desks are becoming more and more popular as we become more conscious of the physical effects of sitting for long periods. As more studies come out telling us to stand more and walk more, many of us find ourselves shouting “but I don’t have the time!” Well, now you do. Buying a standing desk in Christchurch gives you the chance to keep working and keep grinding without sacrificing your health.
The Benefits of Using a Standing Desk in Christchurch
If you remain unconvinced, we don’t blame you. It can seem like an odd concept at first, but once you read about the benefits and the research done on people using standing office desks Christchurch, you may change your tune. Health benefits, mental benefits, and productivity benefits are all part of why standing desks are a worldwide trend.
- We all know that weight gain is caused by consuming more calories than you burn, but how do you maintain a healthy balance while juggling a job, children, and hobbies? Many believe that they have found the answer with an adjustable height office desk in Christchurch. While exercise is still the best way to burn fat, simply standing while you work can cause changes in your body. A study done in 2014 showed that by choosing to stand while you work in the afternoon can burn an extra 1000 calories per week. Standing desks can reduce back pain. If you are one of the millions of people suffering from chronic back pain, know that you are not alone. Many people spend thousands on chiropractor appointments and physiotherapists to correct back problems that are very often caused by sitting in front of a computer for eight or more hours every single day. By standing up for a few hours while you work each day, you can reduce the amount of pressure placed on your lower back by giving your legs a little more to do.
How to Take Your Office to the Next Level
There are a few ways to make your office your personal safe and productive space. We, of course, recommend that you start with an electric height adjustable desk in Christchurch. These desks can be set for the perfect sitting height, so you aren’t craning your neck and the optimal standing height so that you get that most out of the benefits of standing while working. Other things you can do include buying a gaming keyboard and mouse. It may seem silly if you don’t plan on doing much gaming, but these products are designed for prolonged, strenuous use and are often ergonomically designed to prevent hand cramps, finger-pains, and ‘the claw’ that we develop from constantly hanging onto a mouse.
