Over the last few years, studies have discovered sitting all day is slowly killing us. The average American sits for six to eight hours per day, according to the American Heart Association. These long periods of sitting come with an increased risk for diabetes, heart disease and even cancer. Some studies even suggest sitting all day is increasing anxiety as well.
This and more has created a demand for Sit to Stand desks, giving people the ability to both comfortably sit and conveniently stand up throughout the day. The best way to stay healthy is to adjust your working position frequently throughout the day in the following ways to achieve proper ergonomics.
