(Don’t) Take a Seat

A woman uses a standing desk in her office

There’s ample proof that prolonged sitting – like what we do at an office job – is bad for our health. An American Heart Association study found that sitting six hours a day led to a higher risk of diabetes, heart disease and cancer. The Mayo Clinic links prolonged sitting with obesity and metabolic concerns.

These findings may account for the popularity of standing desks. Standing desks are not only linked to improved circulation and metabolism, but a Texas A&M study found they may also boost productivity.

For me, working at a standing desk feels healthier. If I’m more productive, great.
