Stand to Work
Have you wondered if there were reasons you should stop sitting all day? Well, let me tell you why.
- Standing helps with blood circulation in your legs.
- Standing helps you stay more awake.
- Standing burns more calories.
- There is some medical research that indicates higher levels of cancer caused by long hours of sitting.
- Increased risk of diabetes
- Increased risk of heart disease
- Sitting may increase anxiety.
These are all great topics of discussion but I really don’t need these and medical research to tell me what I should already know by common sense.
I had a stroke in 2013 so getting more activity is one of the things I need to do. Standing and sitting with a VARIDESK was the answer for me.
I was recently working on a project that I had to work on overnight. I started getting fatigued so I found myself sitting for several hours that night. I noticed quickly that, in this situation, my feet started swelling so bad that it really scared me. I immediately got up, moved around, sat and elevated my feet, moved some more and drank some water.
I started working again but this time I stood or knelt to change positions and eventually called it a night as I felt I was at risk of a major health crisis.
So, I strongly recommend you find ways to move more, stand more, and change positions more.
Don’t Forget the VARIDESK ActiveMat
You need a floor mat if you plan on standing much. I actually didn’t consider this when I asked for a VARIDESK but my boss did think about it and WOW! Does the ACTIVEMAT ever make a difference.
There are a few different types but I prefer the one with the angled edges because it lets me stretch my calves and it’s nice to step on to the edges.
My New ProDesk 60s at the Front Door
My new ProDesk 60 was delivered in about 5 days. It was in one box but a word of warning. The desk is pretty heavy. I was able to slide it into the house but I needed two people to set it up.
The setup is easy. The desk comes as one unit (the table) and four legs. The problem is you have to prop the desk up against the wall or turn it upside down to connect the legs, which anyone can do. The catch is turning it over. The desk is very sturdy and made out of great materials, but it has extra parts on it so that you can raise and lower the desk easily. The second person in needed to flip the desk over.
I love the desk. It is made out of quality materials and is incredibly easy to operate. It’s nice when a product comes, mostly assembled, and is immediately ready for use.
My VARIDESK ProDesk 60 in Action
There’s not a lot to say about this desk. It just works, and is super easy to adjust between 9 different heights.
I use it sitting and standing. The main thing I need is to adjust my position frequently and move often to help with my blood circulation, and sometimes to help me stay awake.
- Quick delivery
- Package and protected well
- Easy to set up
- Easy to adjust
- 9 different height settings
- Comes with a drink coaster
- Comes with two hooks for hanging a jacket on or a purse, etc.
- It stopped my feet from swelling up as much
- I guess you might be able to say it is a little heavy but that’s not a con to me.
My Final Thoughts
My review is not to convince you that you “must have this.” I only want you to see the benefits of moving more during the day to improve your health.
My healthy pretty much required that I move more so the choice was obvious to me.
I don’t think I will ever work again without a VARIDESK.
I would love to hear your thoughts on the VARIDESK and if you have any other suggestions to help those of use who sit for long periods of time while working.
