Tips and tricks for enjoying your standing desk

A standing desk is a popular piece of kit in home offices right now, and this sit-stand style of working can be an absolute game-changer for increasing your movement throughout the course of a work day. A sit-stand desk gives you the chance to vary your posture between sitting and standing easily and quickly – your computer and all your office equipment rise up and lower down swiftly on the desk whenever you choose.

The video below answers your questions on:

  • How long to stand to work for? (Remember – the reason why ‘sit-stand desk’ is a better name than ‘standing desk’ is that you’re supposed to swap between the two positions regularly!)
  • What height should you choose, and what should your posture look like when you’re standing to work?
  • How can you make it easy to get the correct desk heights every time?
  • Does it matter if you wear shoes, slippers or have bare feet when you use a standing desk?

So it’s over to one of Posturite’s Ergonomic Product Specialists, Vikki Greer, and her tips and tricks in this quick video on sit-stand working:

By the way, here are the anti-fatigue mats which Vikki mentions in her video. These mats are great for adding extra cushioning under your feet when you’re standing up to work.

Enjoy a new working lifestyle with your sit-stand desk or sit-stand desk converter. Don’t overdo the standing - because standing for long periods of time is just as unhealthy as sitting for long periods of time because you're not varying your posture.
