5 Benefits of Standing Desks that the Naysayers Miss

by TrueNorth Desks

The move toward standing desks has become increasingly popular over the course of the last few years. Individuals and companies are seeing the benefits that come with ergonomic office furniture, and it’s becoming more and more important to contribute to the health of employees. Despite the overwhelmingly positive experiences that users report in regards to standing desks, there are still some naysayers that don’t see the value in standing desks. If you are looking to convey the benefits of standing desks to your employer or co-workers, we encourage you to come up with motivating factors outside of the norm. Here are 5 Benefits of Standing Desks that the Naysayers Miss:

Better Posture

As our lives become increasingly centered around computer screens, we are more susceptible to habitual bad posture. Instead of slouching in your desk chair, hunching over your desk, and craning your neck to see your computer screen, consider how a standing desk could improve your posture while at work. Standing straight, you’ll be able to work at your desk without risk of a hunched back. Standing desk users burn more calories throughout the work day and report a reduction in lower back and neck pain.

More Energy

A TrueNorth standing desk allows you more flexibility throughout the work day. You can easily move from your desk to other tasks in the office, and this variety and ease provides users with more energy throughout the week. Standing desks allow users to burn up to 50 more calories every hour, and this cycle helps to generate more energy and more productivity throughout the day.

Adjustable Function

The whisper-like, motorized function on TrueNorth standing desks allows users to easily maneuver between sitting and standing options. We recommend that you stand for 5-6 hours each day, and use the sitting height for the remainder of the day. With our adjustable height desks, you can easily go between the two postures, and ensure that you are incorporating a healthy routine into your work day.  

Productive Collaboration

Peer-to-peer collaboration is important in today’s marketplace. It is essential that co-workers are able to communicate with one another to problem solve and find quality approaches to their daily work. Standing desks easily contribute to a collaborative environment. The sleek design of TrueNorth standing desks allow co-workers to arrange office furniture to assist collaborative projects.

Increased Focus

Humans are more prone to focus when they are standing rather than sitting. We are more alert and ready to take on detailed tasks while in a standing posture. The sit to stand desks at TrueNorth allow users to maintain sustained concentration on important tasks, and promote an active and productive work environment.
