As humans, we have come a long way. Scientific research and technology has made enormous progress and has completely changed our lifestyle. However, this too came for a price. Our own bodies are not yet accustomed to the lifestyle we lead. For example, our bodies need exercise to function optimally, but we spend over 12 hours sitting.
How bad can sitting be? The effects of a prolonged sedentary lifestyle is so huge that there is a whole group of diseases that happen just because of sitting. We need to stand. We need to walk. We need to run. But how do we do so when we have to work at our desk for at least 8 hours a day? The answer is on your desk, a sit stand desk. You can adjust the height to your eye level when you sit or even when you stand.
Sounds inconvenient? It is not. Just a button on an electric height adjustable desk or a couple of simple manual maneuvers will do the trick.
The need for a sit-stand desk
We all know sitting for too long is bad for health. But how exactly? This is how sitting for too long affects our bodies:
- Weakens bones and muscles that were originally meant for a more active life.
- Osteoporosis as a result of weakening bones.
- Contributes to a pot belly when we slouch as we sit.
- Sitting for hours at a stretch is a risk factor for colon, breast, and endometrial cancer apart Osteoporosis from hernia.
- The overall metabolism and digestion slow down when we sit for too long, contributing to high LDL cholesterol and obesity risks.
- High cholesterol and high weight contribute to cardiac issues.
Now you know really how bad a sedentary lifestyle is for us.
Let’s take control
The sad part is, we have become so accustomed to having people with cardiac issues and weight problems around us that we don’t really think we can eradicate the problem. The good news is, we can bring about a collective change.
With a standing workstation at the office and at home, we can stand straight while we work. Those who don’t already have osteoporosis or weak knees will immensely benefit from a sit-stand workstation.
