We always talk about the negative health effects of sitting. The facts are pretty dismal, so we’ve found a standing infographic that compares sitting versus standing for a more pleasant picture.
The infographic does reiterate the negative health effects of sitting, like how good cholesterol drops by 20% the moment you sit down. And it brings to light statistics, like a study in 2012 that showed by reducing “excessive sitting” to less than three hours a day, life expectancy in the U.S. could increase by two years.
But the infographic also offers solutions to the harmful effects of sitting, and supplies an informative picture of how to stand behind an adjustable height desk, and even how to sit while you’re working or reading for better ergonomics.
In this helpful infographic you’ll find plenty of stats and advice for using a standing desk. For more help about how to stand and sit at your standing desk look here. And for the “finest standing desk available today” (via Digital Trends), see the Xdesk standing desk.
