Standing desks for students improve health & productivity
You spend hours and hours sitting down during lectures, tutorial sessions, eating, driving, and taking some time out on the couch. Did you know research has shown that this sedentary lifestyle is detrimental to your health and wellbeing? It affects your posture in the long run and can be the cause of various health issues including chronic back pain.
Not to mention the fact that sitting at a desk has been proven to be less productive than actually standing at an ergonomically designed stand up desk. That’s right, you will be more productive and will study more effectively by using a standing desk. Let’s explore this idea a little further.
How standing desks can help with studying
By standing at your desk, you are alert and ready for action, and you will improve your posture while standing, too. Your concentration levels are up because you will feel more energised. Conventionally, you would’ve spent many hours at your desk, hunched over, slowly developing neck pain, back pain and headaches. But your posture is corrected when you stand and study because you are in a more natural, ergonomic position which is better suited for longer study sessions.

Why good posture matters for students
Good posture should matter to everyone! However, generally speaking, students are younger and have not gone through decades of sitting at a desk. The younger you are the easier it will be to avert health issues caused by a sedentary lifestyle.
If you get into the ‘swing’ of studying and working at a stand up desk now, by the time you are working full time, it will seem like second nature.
