How many times have you been told in your life that too much sitting is bad for your health? 10, 20…
The truth is we like to ignore the facts, pushing them under a carpet like broken toy’s never to be seen again; until years later, when the carpet or yourself can’t contain the truth anymore.
The FACTS are that we as humans function better when we are standing. We were never built to sit! The Victorian Government states that sitting for prolonged periods of time can lead to increased risk of “Depression, Anxiety, Heart Disease, Diabetes and Joint Problems”.
Therefore, reducing sedimentary behavior improves your well being and way of life! So why not try going natural, with stand-up desks!
Built For Your Natural State
Why sit when you can stand and why stand when you can sit. Stand up desks provide flexibility and variety.
Built with a manually adjusting frame, sitting or standing is made quick and easy; wiping the need to have a quick ‘stretch brake’, at an office job or gaming session.
The frame is light and easily adjustable too! providing an easy to handle desk, without having to remove all your items through the use of ‘levers’.
They are perfect for any working environment. One that is healthy, and with the added potential to also boost productivity and cognitive processing, as highlighted in a study conducted in 2015.
As I sit here and write this accessory test review, I am ashamed of myself for stooping to this unnatural state. The curvature in my spine is protruding and I think I’m going to need some saving #MTVpimpmyspine.
Enough about me though, we need to get down to business. The fact that you’ve come this far means we are all in this together. (queue the music).
Gaming To Your Full Potential
This is a gaming website, so of course we have to add how a change in furniture improves our experience.
In all honesty, I believe that standing helps to keep me focused and more alert compared to when I am sitting. It only makes sense that sitting (like lying down) decreases your awareness and brain activity, as you are in a state of rest.
I know I’m being biased but you can’t tell me that all great inventors sit down when they come up with a great idea.
For example I assume Ajit Pai was sitting down when he got brainwashed by the telecom company’s (who I assume were standing). Call me a conspiracy theorist but I think their’s some merit to believe that the illuminate had something to do with this…
But I’m not the only one to feel more engaged, when gaming and standing up.
A blog post by ‘Kirk Hamilton’ at Kotaku wrote that he played games for “2 months standing up” and besides the pain from “standing barefoot for long periods of time” stated that “playing while standing keeps me just as engaged as it did when I first started out.”
Meaning that not only are you more invested into the game but you are also reaping health benefits too; such as weight loss, as standing allows your body to digest food efficiently and incorporate more working muscles. Resulting in a higher rate of energy burned.
Work Horse Capabilities
In terms of work, the benefits are massive!
Already in schools, classes are being fitted with these specific desks for students to use. This is to help minimize the sedimentary life and promote a better lifestyle for 21st century kids.
I always find that when I stand, I procrastinate less. According to some psychologists, people who procrastinate; often search for trivial tasks to do when facing a difficult task.
This could make sense in some scenarios. (As previously mentioned above) Sitting increases the risk of developing depression. Meaning that if you are sitting for too long, then it could be likely that procrastinating and trying to contain a stable mental state could become more difficult.
(please note that these are just my personal assumptions and should not be taken purely as fact).
Your posture will be greatly improved from standing at a work desk too. Neck and shoulder pain will decrease, allowing you to save some money; from going to your local chiropractor or masseuse.
