There are many benefits in using sit stand desk instead of a regular desk and we gathered the most important ones here!
The craze over sit stand desks started a few years ago when numerous articles, YouTube videos and even some Ted talks with the title “Sitting is the new smoking” emerged all over the internet. Due to the change of our daily activities, a regular person sits during the morning commute, at his desk at work, in meetings, at lunch, during the drive home, at the dinner table or restaurant, and then he continues to sit at home to watch TV or use the computer. And sadly he does it again the next day, and the next day and so on. You get what we are trying to say!
Researchers have linked sitting for long periods of time with a number of health concerns. They include obesity and a cluster of conditions — increased blood pressure, high blood sugar, excess body fat around the waist and abnormal cholesterol levels — that make up metabolic syndrome. Too much sitting overall and prolonged periods of sitting also seem to increase the risk of death from cardiovascular disease and cancer.
To help people live more healthy and prevent unnecessary health problems we started to promote and sell sit-stand desks in Slovenia!
