Yoga Journal Suggests Becoming a 'Standup Employee' Boosting Health and Happiness
Date:8/22/2013

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) August 22, 2013

For more than 30 years, Yoga Journal magazine has reported on the expansion and revolution of the yoga movement and innovations in health and fitness. Yoga Journal has been there, serving yoga teachers and the ever-growing yoga community worldwide. Focusing on a broad range of health topics the September 2013 issue recommends becoming a ‘standup employee’ to improve employee’s heath at the office with the help of a TrekDesk Treadmill Desk.

Business reporter David Gelles suggested becoming a ‘standup employee’ in his report on ways to stay happy and healthy on the job in this month’s issue of Yoga Journal. Here is an excerpt from the article:

-Jessica Williams, a communications professional in San Francisco, walked 350 miles in three months without ever leaving her office, thanks to a treadmill desk. With a stream of new studies highlighting the health risks of sitting for long periods (sitting more than six hours a day may more than double your risk of diabetes and heart disease), standing and walking desks are the new must-have office perk. Insurance firm Mutual of Omaha in Omaha, Nebraska, started offering them in 2008 as a preventative health measure. Managers report that those who walk while they work are more energetic and more productive, says Peggy Rivedal, health services manager. For Williams, her treadmill desk hasn't just made her less sedentary. It's also made her feel more creative and decisive. "Maybe it's all the oxygen to the brain," she says. Turn a treadmill into a walking desk with an adapter kit from trekdesk.com. The entire article may be found online at http://www.yogajournal.com/lifestyle/3225/.

“Employees are rapidly discovering increased mood and productivity when they are allowed a work environment that encourages movement,” stated Steve Bordley, CEO of TrekDesk Treadmill Desk. “What is really encouraging is that health professionals and editors now are recognizing that overall health is improved when sedentary periods are kept to a minimum during the workday. One of the major pillars of the Movement Revolution we started five years ago urged individuals to monitor their daily sedentary time and keep it to a minimum. That part of the health equation is finally being recognized.”

Designed to fit any existing treadmill, TrekDesk treadmill desk is an affordable, full sized, height adjustable workstation that allows individuals the opportunity to gain the necessary amount of daily exercise to lose weight, maintain health, reduce stress, prevent disease, strengthen muscles, boost mood and productivity, without requiring additional time during the day or extra motivation.
