THE BENEFITS OF
Focus and concentration
Sit-standing desks are not new. They have been popular in Scandinavia for many years and in fact, it’s mandatory for Danish employers to offer their staff height-adjustable desks. The benefits of standing desks and sit-stand working include being able to alternate between sitting and standing throughout the working day, increased levels of energy, focus, concentration and productivity, as well as improvements in posture and calorie burning.
Good for your body
Health experts, scientists, researchers and medical professionals are all in agreement that working at an electric height-adjustable desk is good for your body. Standing while working engages some of the body’s largest muscles, opens up the chest compared to a sitting posture, elongating the spinal column and reducing strain on the back muscles.

CREATIVE WORKSPACE DESIGN
AND OBESITY INTO TOUCH
Feed your brain
Research into this area is ongoing, but recent studies have shown that sit-stand and move ‘active’ working increases blood and oxygen flow to the brain. This might go some way to explain the increase in productivity and concentration, and also the improvements in the way that we feel, in keeping our energy levels high.
Stand for better health
Standing makes you more aware of your body and overall posture and makes it easier to correct bad habits that have built up over a lifetime of sitting – through movement, exercise and stretching. It’s not just a recommendation by physiotherapists and health professionals for people with ongoing back pain either, we should all be doing it! Everyone everywhere, whether young or old, can benefit and make the change to this healthier way of working and enjoy the benefits of sit-stand and movement.
Anything that gets you standing, moving and being more active in the workplace can help to reduce the risk of obesity. The risks of being too sedentary include increased cholesterol, type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease and high blood pressure. Too much sitting also contributes
We do it 20,000 times a day
Most of us never give breathing a second thought. However, the way that you draw breath can affect both your physical and mental well-being. Standing at your desk as you work can make you much more aware of your breathing, and if you incorporate mindfulness into your daily practice you’ll soon see the benefits to your overall health and well-being, not to mention your productivity, concentration and energy levels.
