One question we hear often is “should I stand more”? Well, absolutely! As technology has improved so much, we are more inclined to be stuck at a desk working with a computer. While computers are great tools, they should not affect our health (especially our spine). The more we are stuck in the sitting position, the weaker our core muscles become. As these muscles are being used less, it puts more stress on the joints in our spine.
There is an easy solution to help reduce the core weakening- Sit/Stand desk. This is the best of both worlds. A desk that can move with you will not force you to stop working, but you will not be sitting all day. You can set a timer that reminds you that it’s time to get up stretch the legs and engage your core muscles.
Ideally, you would want to split your time between sitting and standing throughout the day. And example would be 30 minutes sitting and 30 standing. You could set a timer on your phone to remind you to get up and get moving.
