Keeping active is great for your body— but what if you work a desk job?
We sit during our commute, at our desks at work, and in the evening while we unwind and enjoy our favourite TV shows. With our busy lives, it can be difficult to stay active.
Statistics show that Canadians spend an average of 10 hours a day sitting down. This sedentary lifestyle can lead to weight gain and an increased risk of heart diseases.
So, how do you keep active if you work at a desk all day?
The answer is simple: stand up!
Working in a standing position periodically breaks up the long hours of sitting (the cause muscle soreness and stiffness).
Without further ado, let's take a look into all the benefits of using a standing desk, and how it can help you maximize your productivity from your home office.
