We love the concept of standing desks. Staying seated, in recent times, has been compared to other bad health habits. No doubt there will be an increase in the standing desks trend in the coming years; however there are some important things to remember:
- Consult a health professional; get some advice from your relevant health professional: Doctor, Chiropractor, Podiatrist etc…
- Know your physical limits; standing is great – we all love to do more of it. We may need to. As with everything in life, moderation is key. We need to keep track of how much we do of it. Strike the perfect balance.
- Wear comfortable shoes; make sure that your shoes are correctly chosen for your body and feet. You should have comfortable shoes.
- Anti Fatigue Matting; yes, you knew this was going to be mentioned. These are sometimes called a Standing Desk Mat. It is an important factor though. That’s why many work safe professionals consider anti fatigue mats as part of their preventative strategies.
Too much of a good thing may not be so great – be successful in your standing desk aims; there are ways to get results. This is especially the case when considering work safety and the standing desks.
Tick all the boxes, and when you’re ready; feel free to reach out with your requirements for anti-fatigue matting – whatever they may be.
