Stand for Your Health!
Did you know that sitting at your desk all day has serious health risks? Use Adjustable Tables to stand for part or all of your work day and you will have more energy than you could have imagined. Here are some benefits MultiTable.com and spokesperson Michael Haynes (NFL) lists of standing to work:
- Standing helps reduce your cancer risk by 30%.
- It reduces heart disease risk by 46%
- It increases your energy, stamina and productivity
So, after hearing these reasons why standing up is better for your health, are you going to change the way you work? Is it possible to change your work environment? Mine isn’t easily adjustable at work. My department has counters built in at chair height. Although, the radiologists that work reading films all day have work stations that can be raised and lowered with just a click of a button. Many of them do change positions throughout the day. It’s funny, most of them stand after lunch. Maybe it leads to better digestion!
I love how MultiTable.com is giving back this holiday season. They are participating in Adopt a family. This holiday season, 5% of proceeds go to Desert Mission Food Bank!
