Is it bad to use a standing desk all day?

Part of the: Standing Desks Collection

If you’re a professional in the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic scenario and your job has shifted permanently to remote working, we understand your concerns about falling victim to a sedentary lifestyle. 

Working for over seven hours a day affects one’s physical health and concentration levels during office hours also suffer. Additionally, the prolonged hours of sitting at the same height or posture can become uncomfortable, affecting the work performance of an individual who would usually take a stroll after lunch or a run down for a quick phone call on a normal working day.

What is a Standing Desk?

For starters, standing desks are designed specifically as work desks that enable individuals to comfortably stand and work as an interval to sitting for long hours. 

Alternately, standing desks are becoming more popular as 'sit-stand desks' due to their shape. The sturdy built and detailed finishing of a standing desk makes it the go-to choice for working professionals. That said, these desks are adjustable in height and are fitted with a solid ergonomic shape that provides the required support at different postures both while standing and sitting. 

Sit-Stand Range - Stand Up Electric Height Adj Desk

How does a JasonL standing desk differ from others in the market? 

Our height adjustable standing desks tend to be “just right” - neither too high nor too low, with the soft melamine hand rest enhancing your posture while sitting and the outer glossy grafting making it easier to stand without troubling your feet.

It is a scientifically proven fact that standing for about 10 minutes after you have sat for longer durations can both release mental stress and improve focus when resuming work. Standing desks online are filled with fanciful shapes but rarely have the right aesthetics to pump up the focus at work. In comparison, sit-stand desks at JasonL are lightweight, compact and minimalist, suiting your budget without compromising with its finesse and strength.

Can two people work at a standing desk?
