There are many benefits to using a standing desk at home, the office, or in your new work from home space. Below, we detail some of the most attractive benefits of a standing desk.

Versatility for Your At-Home Workout

One of the most attractive benefits of standing desks is the versatility they offer. Standing at work is an excellent way to improve your productivity while reducing some of the health risks that arise from sitting too long.

But their adjustable height opens the doors to integrate additional workout equipment into your at-home or office workout station. With balance boards, treadmill desks, or under desk bikes, you can vary your workout routine to fit with your preferences.

Standing desks are the first step towards a healthy work environment. Avoid sitting and spice up your work day. Walk, bike, or work on your balance and core strength. The choice is yours with a standing desk and you it’s time to tailor your routine to your preferences.

Reduces the Risk of Obesity and Weight Gain

Studies have shown standing for an entire afternoon can potentially burn more than 170 calories. That means over the course of a week, you can potentially burn more than 1,000 extra calories. That’s without adding any additional fitness equipment to your office, such as a treadmill desk.

Lowered Blood Sugar Levels

High blood sugar levels are well-known to cause harm to your health. Luckily, standing desks can help curb the health risks associated with high blood sugar. A recent study found that standing for only three hours after eating lunch reduced blood sugar by 43%. Other research found sedentary time could double your risk of certain types of diabetes.

Lowered Risk of Heart Disease

Studies definitively show that standing all day increases your chance of heart-disease-related death. Standing can decrease the risk by as much as half.

Dramatically Reduced Back and Pain

Sitting all day can easily lead to back and neck pain. With proper use of a standing desk, you can reduce your back pain significantly within only a few weeks. Additionally, you can achieve pain relief within a mere four weeks with a standing desk.

Boosted Productivity and Focus

Studies show that workers who use standing desks were both more comfortable and healthy at work. The results showed 88 percent of participants who received adjustable-height standing desks reported they were convenient while 65 percent reported increased productivity.
