Why You Need a Sit or Stand Desk
In case you’re unaware, let me fill you in: sitting too much increases your risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, and several other long-term health issues.
In fact, doctors are saying that sitting is the new smoking, because studies show that sitting is an independent risk factor and correlates to disease and mortality similar to smoking.
That hour of exercise you religiously put in every day, while it’s good for you, doesn’t change a thing with regard to the amount of time you sit. It simply cannot undo the damage done by extended periods of sitting.
