Our Top Height-Adjustable Desks For Your Home Office
It’s no secret; long periods of sitting reduces circulation within our bodies, compromising our health and productivity levels. Some have even gone so far as to call sitting “the new smoking” as studies continue to link it to a slew of health issues, such as heart disease and stroke. It’s important to note that the problem does not lie within sitting itself, but the length of time we’re sitting without regular breaks. Some experts recommend getting up every 30-40 minutes for a walk or stretch break. If that’s simply not possible, a standing desk is a great alternative to break up long periods of sitting.
Besides keeping users mobile, standing desks also provide support for users while sitting. Set it to the perfect ergonomic height to reduce tension in the shoulders, back and neck.
