Research tells us that standing desks are far better for our well-being than the conventional ones we’re so used to; the internet is brimming with well-researched articles showing us why this is the case! But while you may be convinced of your need for a standing desk, perhaps you’ve been put off by the cost of those fancy electronically adjustable desks and the tricky DIY aspect involved.
If this is you, then you’ve come to the right place! In this blog, we’ll show you how to make ANY desk a standing desk without spending a fortune and without the hassle of assembling it from scratch.
Why a standing desk?
The last couple of decades have seen a flood of research into the causes of various health issues from back pain to diabetes. Evidence shows that one of the leading contributors to these issues is the length of time we spend sitting at our desks, on our couches, and behind the wheel. If you want to find out more about why this is, check out this article by the Mayo Clinic.
If you’re one of the millions of people suffering from back or joint aches, it’s more than likely your pain is related to poor posture while slouching over a desk all day. If most of your day-to-day involves working at a computer, one of the first things physiotherapists and chiropractors may recommend is a standing desk. Standing up while typing ensures you keep your shoulders back and chin up. This position is a healthy, comfortable and efficient way to work and encourages more movement during the day. Believe it or not, standing desks can actually increase your productivity by up to 45%.
