If you are like 86% of all Americans, you spend most of your day in the office in a seated position. What many of those Americans don’t know is just how damaging the effects of sitting are on your body and long-term health. While it is a healthy lifestyle choice, even incorporating daily exercise at the gym cannot reverse the effects of sitting for prolonged periods of time. Living in Clayton, Missouri provides plenty of opportunity for people to exercise and make up for hours of sitting.
These desks, with easily adjustable heights, allow you to customize your workplace so that it works for your specific body composition and height.
Personalization• The keyboard should rest just above your lap. Your hands, wrists, and arms should all be aligned, allowing your shoulders to be relaxed and your wrists to be in a neutral position.
• The top of the monitor should be roughly at eye level, so that you are not straining your neck to see. It should also be at arms length away for you to be able to see comfortably.
• Use versatile office furniture such as the sit-to-stand desk so that you can move freely from one to the other throughout your day.
• If your feet do not comfortably rest on the ground, try rocking footrests to increase circulation throughout the day and increase knee alignment.
The Truth about StandingAlthough it may not seem comfortable at first, standing actually increases your metabolism and blood flow, burns calories and fat, and can even improve your posture. You can decrease the dangers of sitting by incorporating movement into your day in small, easy ways. For example:
• Stand up when you talk on the phone.
• Park further away from your building to get a little extra walking in before you sit down to work.
• Take a lap every time you get up to use the bathroom or fill up on coffee.
• Set a timer every hour and give yourself 10 minutes to get up and stretch or walk around
Finding the right routine that works for you can greatly decrease the impact extended sitting has on your body. Finding your local Clayton Relax The Back retailer is just one of several steps you can take toward improving your health at the workplace.
