Archive for April 2013

Today people have long working hours and the entire work is done while sitting. This, as numerous studies suggest, takes a toll on the health. That is why a keyboard stand and a Stand up desk for your monitor is a good idea because a Standing desk and a Monitor riser will help you work while standing, which will give you a break from sitting and work for your health.

A good number of us work in the offices. And among those of us who do, the majority have to do it sitting down in front a computer at a desk. No escape from that if we want to keep the job. And it is not just the offices. When you are working from home, you usually work sitting down. Most of us have to use a computer for a length of time. That is a sitting down job. There are other jobs such as writing, painting, fixing electronic goods, crafting on wood, doing leather work etc. that will need you to sit down while doing the job. Now the longer we stay in the sitting posture, according to some researchers, our chances of getting heart diseases, diabetes and obesity may double or even triple.

Of course, it is not just work that we do while sitting down. Some people are too hooked to gaming to leave the computer for a while. Some people simply love to chat. Again some people are hooked to movies and they watch them on their computers. Most of these people are kids. So how to get them see the bad in sitting down for a long time?Well, if you cannot help not doing your work at the computer or at anything, you can do it while standing. That you can do with the help of a Stand up desk. With a Standing desk and your work stuff on it, you do not have to sit down. In fact you can do your work while standing.

Now you may be wondering why standing would be any better. Of course, standing for a long time is not good either. But you do not have to stand for a long time. You will simply need to stand for a while to give yourself a break from sitting down. There is an enzyme in our body that is called lipase. It is responsible for fat burning and cholesterol processing. Basically, it moves fat from other tissues to muscle tissues where that fat is burned. Researchers say, when you are sitting for about 20 minutes, lipase circulation practically stops. This makes you prone to obesity, bad cholesterol levels, heart diseases etc. So you must give yourself a break from sitting at least every twenty minutes because when you stand up, lipase circulation gets automatically activated. This way you can naturally activate lipase circulation. Standing up does not involve drugs whose side effects are not known. So this is the healthy way to do whatever you do at your computer.

If you work at a desktop computer, then a Monitor riser would be what you need, along with a keyboard stand. With the monitor riser you can have your monitor at your eyes’ level when you stand up. The keyboard stand will keep the keyboard at a height where it is comfortable for you to use it while standing up. You can get your stand up desk online as well.
