Standing about 33% of your day is a good amount!
Things to Consider when Standing:
- Do you wear comfortable footwear?
- Do you have an anti-fatigue mat or a footrest to prop your foot up on?
- Do I ease into standing or just go for it?
- Do I still need an ergonomic chair if I invest in a standing desk?
- When I use my desk in standing, is my monitor still at the correct height?
USED CORRECTLY – YOU WILL REAP THE REWARDS:
- Wearing flats or bare feet are essential to being comfortable in standing
- Having an anti-fatigue mat or a footrest can help support your lower back
- Just like exercise, ease into anything new to your routine
(Check with your doctor if you’re unsure if standing is the right option for you)
- Don’t ignore your posture when sitting – Remember when you’re standing, you basically have no support so when it’s time to sit, make sure you have the proper chair
- Consider adding a monitor arm or a monitor riser if you experience neck discomfort when you alternate from sitting to standing postures
