The Advantages of Standing Desk In Office

One of the most wonderful and beneficial things an office environment can teach you is time management. Offices usually have fixed hours for work,
lunch and tea break. The minute you become a staff member in an office,
you are made to work according to the time slot. Here your mind will
slowly begin to process according to the working hours provided. This
will also help you learn about maintaining punctuality. If you are
someone who finds it extremely difficult to discipline yourself, working
in an office would definitely be suitable for you. You will be taught
how to begin and end on time.

Few areas can get as cluttered, or need organization as much, as an office or home office desk. It is the scene of all kinds of paperwork and other office items such as bound printed material, computer hardware and software, and decorative or sentimental items. When added together with the ongoing work process that takes place at a desk, all these objects can create a confusing and scattered whirlwind of disorganization.
Desk organizers offer a convenient means of dealing with the high activity area that is an office desk. They are desk items that are specifically designed to make sense out of the morass and chaos.


Benefits of Standing Desks

Thinking about installing a standing desk for your own office space? Take a look at some of the reasons why you should.

Less Obesity Risk

Leading standing desk researcher, James Levine of the Mayo Clinic, conducted a study on a group of office workers. They all added 1,000 calories to their daily intake and were asked not to change any exercise or movement habits. Some of the workers gained weight while others did not. Curious as to what was making the different, Levine and his team sewed sensors into the undergarments of the workers to track daily movement. What they found was that the group not gaining weight actually sat much less than the other workers. Even if they were just standing to stretch or walk to the bathroom, the group that did not experience weight gain sat 2.25 hours less than their peers.

Levine is quick to point out that standing is just the start. To really experience optimal health, sedentary workers must actually walk around more. But a standing desk is a start (and standing burns 50 more calories per hour than sitting anyway).


Reduced Risk of Obesity

Levine's research began as an investigation into an age-old health question: why some people gain weight and others don't. He and colleagues recruited a group of office workers who engaged in little routine exercise, put them all on an identical diet that contained about 1000 more calories than they'd been consuming previously and forbid them from changing their exercise habits. But despite the standardized diet and exercise regimens, some participants gained weight, while others stayed slim.

Eventually, using underwear stitched with sensors that measure every subtle movement, the researchers discovered the secret: the participants who weren't gaining weight were up and walking around, on average, 2.25 more hours per day, even though all of them worked at (sitting) desks, and no one was going to the gym. "During all of our days, there are opportunities to move around substantially more," Levine says, mentioning things as mundane as walking to a colleague's office rather than emailing them, or taking the stairs instead of the elevator.

There are a bunch of other benefits on offer when you use a standing desk, too! According to this post:


  • They can reduce the risk of obesity / weight gain. You gotta keep moving if you want to avoid piling on the pounds!
  • They can cut down your risk of developing Type 2 Diabetes. Apparently standing works wonders for your blood sugar levels!
  • They can reduce your risk of cancer. There's said to be a link between sitting about a lot and some cancers. Who would have thought it?
  • They can cut down on the possibility of hear disease. Sitting increases your risk of heart failure. There's no two ways about it!


There's a bunch more info in the post, and the great replies above. Super glad I use one each day!
