4-reasons-to-be-thankful-for-your-standing-deskAs fall makes way for winter, we settle in with a hot cup of a tea to welcome a season of gratitude. There is so much to be grateful for: our health, happiness, families, friends, work and community. It’s important to count your blessings every now and then, and remind yourself of what you appreciate. In your work environment, if you have access to a standing desk or ergonomic office furniture, then you should be doubly grateful for your good fortune! Not all employers value the health of their employees the way that yours must. Here are 4 Reasons to be Grateful for your Standing Desk:

Health

It’s been said that sitting is the new smoking. Ergonomic office furniture is the antidote for this epidemic and standing desks are a healthy option for employees. Instead of sitting all day and accumulating lower back and neck pain, standing desk users are promoting their health instead of detracting from it. Tradition is a tricky thing to get stuck in – too often people do the same thing over and over again, just because that’s the way they’ve always done it. There are numerous health benefits associated with standing desks. Not only do they offer physical benefits, but sit to stand desks also have been linked to promoting mental health. If you’re interacting with more people and accomplishing more during the workday, you are overall a more satisfied individual.

Productivity

Employees that are more productive are generally happier than ones that are not. Productive workdays allow for a sense of purpose and satisfaction, and motivated individuals are able to accomplish goals outside of the office as well. Standing desks do a great job of encouraging productivity throughout an office environment. People are constantly moving from their workstations to other areas of the office to collaborate, process and reevaluate. Corporate furniture is an important aspect to consider when evaluating office culture.

Aesthetic

Employees that use motorized standing desks have a greater sense of individuality and control in their office jobs. It’s great to have a space that is solely yours and offers adjustable height and aesthetic. Creative professionals especially appreciate utilizing standing desks in their office environments, and are great about finding ways to fit desks together to encourage peer-to-peer collaboration.

Versatility

One of the best features about the TrueNorth standing desks is that they allow for both sitting and standing. We understand that not every job allows for standing all day, and that sometimes sitting is a more convenient option. The whisper-like feature on our motorized standing desks allows individuals the autonomy to choose when they are sitting and when they are standing.
