If you work in the business world, you know that you spend a lot of time behind a desk, which is not the healthiest thing in the world. Too much sitting--a sedentary lifestyle, if you will-- has been associated with an increased risk of mortality. So what do you do if you have to sit behind a desk the whole day? You get yourself a brilliant standing desk for your virtual office! Here are the 4 reasons to consider a standing desk in your virtual office.

Standing Tall: Four Reasons to Consider a Standing Desk in Your Virtual Office

You Will Live Longer



This is probably the best reason to consider getting a standing desk. A study from the journal of Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise looked at the lifestyles of some 17,000 people over a period of 13 years. The study concluded that those who sat for much of the day at work actually had a 54 percent greater chance of dying from a heart attack.

It Can Help with Back Problems



Getting a standing desk in your virtual office can be a godsend for your back problems. Lots of people simply buy a more expensive office chair or perhaps get themselves a pillow to put behind their backs. However, if you really want to make that back pain disappear, you should stop using your back so much. The more you stand every day behind your standing desk, the more your back problems can become a thing of the past.

It Improves Your General Health



Simply put, the human body is not built for sitting for long periods of time each day at work. Metabolic problems will pop up if you sit for extended periods of time each day, problems like poor circulation and an inability to produce the required chemicals to process fats and sugars in the body. Getting a standing desk will reverse these metabolic issues, thereby allowing your body to become healthier.

It Improves Your Muscle Health



The reactive frame of your body is composed of your muscles and bones. They have a desire to move and react to outside forces, which they clearly can't if you're just sitting down the whole day at work. When you stand more regularly, you are really permitting your body to adjust and move the way it was intended to. This also lets you flex your muscles constantly.

In the business world, standing desks are relatively rare, but studies like the one mentioned earlier are helping it make inroads. If you have been sitting down for many years at your job, you definitely should look into getting a standing desk. If you have a virtual office, a standing desk will come in handy, too, letting you prolong your life and make sure that your metabolism functions well. A standing desk can be expensive, but it is definitely a worthwhile investment that can improve your health.
