Is a Standing Workstation Right for You?

By Nicole Tinkham
You’ve heard all the horror stories and dangers of sitting at a desk all day long. It increases your risk of obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and so on that can lead to early death. Yikes! All from sitting down at a desk all day?! We’re not sure how these studies were performed or if they’re even accurate but we do know the importance of getting up every once in awhile to stretch and walk around. However, many of us get so swamped with work that we either don’t have time to take a quick breather or we just forget to do so. If you’re a little worried about sitting for too long in the office, a standing workstation may be the upgrade you need. With any new office furniture, it helps to be educated before making a purchase which is why we put together this pro and con list to help you determine if a stand-up desk is right for you.
