What is a standing desk? Most standing desks are motorised and come with buttons and dials that allow you to increase their height so that you can comfortably stand while working.
Standing desks are the latest trend taking off in Singapore. They have been proven to have many health benefits like reducing the risks of heart disease and obesity. If you are thinking about purchasing a standing desk but unsure if it's worth it, here's why standing desks are worth it.
- Burn the calories.
Burning calories is one of the proven ways to prevent you from putting on weight. According to studies, you could burn close to 170 additional calories in the same amount of time you spend sitting while working, by standing and working instead.
But how long should you stand at a standing desk per day? According to health and wellness site Healthline, research has shown you should aim to stand for one hour or at least 30 minutes of standing time for every one hour you sit.
- Reduce back pain
Sitting for extended periods of time can add stress to your back, neck, and shoulders. In fact, people who sit a lot during the day are at higher risk for many health problems, including heart disease, diabetes, obesity, and even cancer.
Standing desks can help counteract this negative impact. Standing while working has shown to reduce lower back and upper neck pain significantly.
- Improve mood and productivity
Imagine being able to work from home and not having the need to take a nap in the middle of the day. That’s what a standing desk can help you do. Not only does it improve mood but it also increases productivity.
Studies have shown that standing while working reduces fatigue and improves overall energy. This improves mood which in turn can have a positive impact on productivity levels. Working from home can also lead to a more sedentary lifestyle, making us less likely to get up and walk around as when in the office. Hence, standing desks are one of the best ways to incorporate movement into our work from home setup.
