Studies Show Stand Up Desks Spur Productivity & Creativity

Akron, OH (PRWEB) November 25, 2013

Leading manufacturer of carefully crafted stand up desks, Amish Country Furniture at says stand up desks are proven to increase productivity and creativity. Many are put off by the idea of standing all day simply because they believe it will be uncomfortable. Contrary to popular belief standing for at least part of the day can relieve back pains associated with sitting for prolonged periods of time. Also, most stand-up desk owners use their standing desk as a supplemental desk and go back and forth from sitting and standing. Gradually working your way up to 50% standing in half hour increments is recommended.

According to an article from Business Insider beyond the health benefits of stand-up desks, standing while working also increases alertness thereby increasing productivity and creativity, standing also gives you more energy and strengthens your core muscles in your abdomen and back burning extra calories along the way. While there are great benefits to stand up desks, Amish Country Furniture at warns against standing extremely still for long periods of time as this can cause strain on your legs, lower back, ankles and feet. To avoid these unwanted effects, virtually all of the standing desks at come with a footrest rail, allowing users to move around and switch the sides of your body where you’re placing the majority of your body weight.

For those who are not quite ready to stand up for the entire day, suggests getting up for a walk every couple of hours, going outside to stay alert, or getting a sit-stand desk that allows you to sit when you tire of standing.

Without a doubt standing desks have a wealth of benefits. The idea that stand up desks spur productivity is not novel. Many great thinkers have historically used stand up desks including Mark Zuckerberg, Winston Churchill and Ernest Hemingway.
All of Amish Country Furniture's’s custom desks are made in Ohio and are built to order. To learn more about standing desks, please visit their website.
