Sitting for hours at the desk makes us mentally drowsy and physically tired. We need to stand up more often at work. A sedentary lifestyle has various ill effects on our body and mind, including cancer. Yes, a sedentary lifestyle is a legitimate risk factor for some cancer types.
But we don’t have to equate a desk job with a sedentary lifestyle anymore. We can take a stand. Having a sit stand mobile workstation helps us do what is otherwise not practically feasible.
The various rules
Alternating between sitting and standing postures every 30 minutes is healthy. Some say standing for 5 minutes every fifteen minutes helps avoid the consequences of a basically sedentary lifestyle. Some say brisk walking or jogging is necessary if you sit for 8 hours straight.
Whatever you believe in, or whatever works for you is what you should choose to do. With a sit-stand desk converter you will finally be able to do it. You will be able to work standing.

Relation with Cancer
When we do not slouch while sitting, we avoid the risk factor of endometrial cancer and breast cancer. Our bodies were meant for a lot of exercises, a lot of heavy work. Our lives have become sedentary but our bodies aren’t yet accustomed to it. Here is how a sedentary lifestyle can cause endometrial cancer:
- Sitting for too long makes us gain weight. Obesity is a risk factor for endometrial cancer. The excess fat accumulated in our belly region as a result of long sitting hours and slouching puts pressure on a woman’s reproductive organs. A desk job is particularly harmful for pregnant women.
- Sitting for too long changes our appetite. Long breaks between meals is a risk factor for endometrial cancer as well. Heavy meals after hours of fasting has a negative impact on the muscles in the belly region.
- The muscles become weak due to lack of exercise. This too is a risk factor for endometrial cancer and cancer of any part around the stomach.
Standing up occasionally at work helps us be healthy and much more productive throughout the day. A sit stand desk converter is therefore crucial for the good health of people who have to spend hours in front of a computer, and a few more hours at a desk at home.
