Adjustdesk.com is all about adjustable height desks. It's a simple, stupid statement, but there you have it. And just why do we promote the usage of adjustable height desks (also called standing desks) so much? It's mainly for their health benefits.
Many successful people have used standing desks over the years, such as Leonardo DaVinci, Napoleon, Thomas Jefferson and Winston Churchill. These men all apparently knew the advantages of standing up while working.
It's a simple thing, standing up while working, but it changes so much. When you're sitting down at a desk you're sedentary, in a relaxed position and your body tends to slouch, you get lazy and all sorts of bad things can happen to your health when you spend a lot of time in this position.
Conversely when you're standing you're in an active, attacking position. As Yogi Berra once infamously said, "90% of the game is half mental". With being productive it's similar - you want to be in the right frame of mind, and standing up at an adjustable height desk can help improve your mental state and your productivity as well as your health.
If that's not enough to sway you, consider the fact that you could lose weight as well! Standing uses all sorts of muscles throughout your body - and not just in your legs. This causes you to grow muscle and burn calories. You can tone your calves as well as burn 200-300 calories (or possibly more) each workday!
Now, standing all day isn't necessarily great for you either. All thing in moderation, right? Enter the desk with adjustable height. This ergonomic desk is perfect because you can stand for as long as you want, then simply lower it and sit down for a bit.
We promise that once you try standing up while working for a week you'll never go back to sitting all day! Give it a shot for your health and outlook.
