With Christmas just around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about what to get those closest to you, and we think we know just the gift. It’s stylish, practical, and beneficial for just about anyone to have in their home or office. That’s right, you guessed it, we’re talking about a standing desk.
So why is a standing desk a great Christmas gift idea for coworkers or anyone who might enjoy these awesome products? Well, let’s explore all the reasons why a standing desk is one of the most useful office gifts that nobody will be disappointed to receive.
What is a Standing Desk?
A standing desk is exactly how it sounds – a desk where you can stand and work at the same time! Over the last few years, standing desks have grown in popularity due to the numerous health benefits associated with their use. Standing desks are adjustable, and once calibrated to your height, you’ll find a comfortable work experience is born thanks to their innovative and convenient design. With standing desks ballooning in popularity thanks to the ‘work from home era’, in no time you’ll find more and more of them in people’s homes and offices!
Why a Standing Desk is the Perfect Gift for Desk Workers
There are many reasons why standing desks are great gifts for desk workers and here are just a few!
One of the biggest reasons why standing desks are so popular is because of the numerous health benefits. With a standing desk, you improve your cardiovascular health and decrease blood sugar levels. Users will end up living longer because of your stand-up desk if you use it regularly, as you won’t be spending 90% of your day sitting down in a chair. The freedom to move around, walk in place, and just be more active while working is one of the reasons why you should consider getting one of these desks.
2. Better Posture and Reduced Back Pain
No matter how comfortable a chair is, back pain happens to us all after sitting at a desk for hours on end. On the other hand, standing desks promote better posture, which in turn provides for drastically reduced instances of back pain. No more complaining about a sore back on the job as you experience a whole new, comfortable way of working!
3. Increased Productivity
With all the combined benefits of a standing desk, your overall productivity will likely increase. With more activity comes more energy, encouraging less time to slouch or get complacent and instead, work on your feet! The entire Progressive Desk office uses standing desks, and our staff definitely feel the value of them.
4. Better Mood & Cognitive Energy
With your overall body receiving renewed activity throughout the day, you’ll soon find your mood becomes far more pleasant. Standing desk users become the delight of the office thanks to how good they’re feeling and how positive they have become. Another exciting benefit is that your brain activity can be boosted after changing to, and regularly using, a standing desk. Additionally, you’ll find that you’re a lot more energetic than before, which is great for not only making the time go by faster, but making better use of it!
5. Weight Loss
Standing desks and weight loss have been linked! We’re not insinuating you’ll lose boatloads of weight, but standing desk users will benefit from them when it comes to their overall weight. Activity is certainly a biproduct of using a standing desk – the more you stand, the more calories you will burn. With a standing desk, obesity can be fended off and users can become far more in-tune with their body’s needs.
Aside from all of the physical benefits of standing desks, another simple benefit is that depending on the company you purchase with, they become the focal point of a room. Their ergonomic design and function makes them stand out – Progressive Desk allows you to build a desk from scratch, choosing from frames, tabletops, grommets, remotes, and convenient desk accessories!
