As sitting has been dubbed “the new smoking,” it’s increasingly important to incorporate more movement into your everyday life. One of the best ways to do that is to swap sitting for working at a standing desk. Spending more of your workday standing could reduce the risk of obesity, diabetes, cancer and heart disease.
A variety of standing desks are on the market today. The advantage of an adjustable standing desk is you can stand for half of your workday and sit for the other half.
Consider alternating between sitting and standing every half hour to hour. To add more variety, try marching or jogging in place or even dancing to your favorite tunes while you work. You might be surprised by how much energy you’ll have by standing more!
But as standing will have you battling gravity all day, consider regular chiropractic adjustments with us.
