Did You Know?
  • In Scandinavia 90% of office workers have a sit-stand desk – this started in the late 1990s and is now commonplace. In Denmark, it is now the law for an employer to provide all office workers with a sit-stand desk.
  • Standing is effective in burning calories, improving blood circulation and tackling low blood pressure – standing up encourages movement and fidgeting. Both are important to activate key muscle groups, boost blood circulation and maintain a healthy metabolic rate. Furthermore, important enzymes which transfer bad cholesterol out of your arteries are much more effective when you stand.
  • Standing improves your posture and encourages mobility. When standing, you naturally align your spine to an "S" shape and thereby engage / strengthen your core muscles. It is important to break up sitting and avoid the risk of staying in a "C" shape posture.
  • When you stand you are more confident and collaborative. Oxygen flows more easily to your head, boosting endorphins. So when you need to complete an important phone call or conclude a difficult discussion you will be much more effective doing it from a standing position. Try it yourself on a company phone call - you will be amazed.
  • Certain tasks are done faster when standing: You will be surprised how simple tasks, such as going through your inbox or ‘to do’ list can be done more quickly when standing. Try it.
  • Standing improves your breathing by allowing the chest to be fully open, giving full facility to the diaphragm.
