The office norm is to sit. But we’re all learning that a sedentary lifestyle is proven to be harmful for your health. Bodies aren’t designed to sit for hours. Studies show that you can’t reverse the poor effects of sitting all day with a vigorous morning or evening run. With a standing desk, you can lower your risk of obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease and cancer.

On average, you will burn up to 50 more calories every hour you stand instead of sit. Plus, standing for half of your day during the work week each year is equal to running ten marathons.
So we get it. Sitting is bad. But what you might not know is that too much standing can also be detrimental for many of the same reasons. It’s best to stand for about 4 to 5 hours of your workday.
A combination of sitting and standing is optimal for your health. Standing between three to five hours a day is ideal.
