Why is sitting less better for your health?

Adults who sit less throughout the day have a lower risk of early death-particularly from cardiovascular disease. (1.)

Switching between sitting and standing offers the body movement, and movement is the key to computing comfort. Why? One reason is likely because motion facilitates blood flow to carry oxygen and nutrients to joints and tissues so we stay energised while working. This is especially true when using large muscle groups, like those involved in standing. (2.)

What is recommended at work?

A 2011 study published by the Centres for Disease Control (CDC) and Prevention shows prolonged sitting is reduced when workers are equipped with sit-stand workstations and desks. Among other things, increased standing among participants improved mood states and reduced incidents of the neck and back pain. (3.)

Tips to reduce your sitting time: (4.)
  • Use a height adjustable desk so you can work standing and sitting
  • Stand and take a break from your computer every 30 minutes
  • Take breaks in sitting time in long meetings
  • Stand to greet a visitor to your workplace
  • Use the stairs
  • Stand during phone calls
  • Walk to your colleagues’ desk instead of phoning or emailing
  • Drink more water – going to the water cooler and toilet will break up sitting time
  • Eat your lunch away from your desk
  • Stand at the back of the room during presentations
