Keep your creative juices flowing with standing workstations and dynamic seating.
The craze of a standing workstation is in reality not a craze at all. Studies strongly support the philosophy that increased standing during the day has several benefits for your health and ergonomics.
Benefits to less sitting and more standing while you work:
- Keeps your blood flowing and mind more alert.
- Improves communication, instead of sending an email by standing you take more notice of your surroundings
- Improves your posture and core strength. Strengthening your core also reduces back and tailbone pain caused by long hours of sitting.
Check out this article and then ask yourself how many hours a day you spend sitting? And what might you do differently during the day to benefit from giving your shoulders, back or bottom, a break?
Locus workstations let you rock the day job in a posture halfway between standing and sitting. Designed to move with you, encourage active engagement, and allow your creative juices to flow.
If you are not quite ready to make the leap to a standing workstation, consider moving away from a more traditional 24/7 task chair. Consider the reasons to use an “Active Chair.” These types of chairs basically move when you move. They force you to engage your core abdominal muscles to give you a subtle work out while you work. See Wall Street Journal article below for Active Chair benefits and solutions.
