Sitting for more than eight hours a day increases your risk of life-threatening diseases that include cancer and cardiovascular disease. As a result, standing desks began popping up in offices all over the country. When owning a standing desk, it is easy to fall into the habit of remaining standing for most of the day. As the old saying goes, “too much of a good thing can sometimes be bad.” Standing desks are made to alternate between sitting and standing throughout the workday. Doing so maximizes the health benefits of a standing desk.
