More and more companies are realizing the lasting negative effects sitting has on their employees. We certainly weren’t meant to be sitting all day in the outdoor-friendly city of Plantation, where our motto is “The Grass is Always Greener.” These companies are on the look out for alternatives to the common workstation. Your employees deserve to be comfortable in their work environment. With research indicating major health problems can result from a sedentary lifestyle, it’s time to find ergonomic office solutions that work for you and your business.
Studies show that 86% of Americans spend their days sitting all day in an office. 67% of those Americans say they hate sitting, and almost all of them take regular breaks throughout the day to relieve the symptoms induced by prolonged inactivity. Even after long hours working, many Americans come home to sit down and eat, use the computer, or watch TV. This can increase the hours the average American spends sitting or sleeping to 21 hours a day.
Take a StandWhat we don’t realize is that, by increasing the risk of cancer, heart disease, and diabetes two times over, sitting may be killing us. Many people have pre-existing conditions that are worsened by long hours of sitting with no relief. In one survey, over half of the employees felt that they would be more productive if they had the option to work on their feet. Many workers are turning to Standing Desks as an alternative to spending their days in a sedentary position.
These desks are adjustable, so that you can comfortably oscillate between a seated and standing position. Standing while working is proven to increase blood flow, metabolism, and mental alertness.
Creating variable options for your body to stay in motion throughout the day is key. Ergonomic office chairs allow for this same flexibility with adjustable heights, armrests, and full lumbar support for maintaining a healthy posture. These chairs also lightly engage your core muscles throughout the day so you stay strong and healthy.
Moving ForwardCampaigns across the country are taking a stand against what is now known as Sitting Disease. By encouraging citizens to get up and move around throughout the workday, we are becoming more aware of the common danger of something we all fall victim to.
Staying healthy at work means making small changes one at a time to promote balance in the workplace.
• Take a 15-minute walk or do 25 jumping jacks before you get to work in the morning to increase your heart rate.
• Park further away from your building so you get a little extra walk in before you start your day.
• Take the long way to the restroom or the lunchroom when you take a break.
• Instead of e-mailing your colleague, walk over to their office.
• Make time to stretch each hour. Even if it’s just 1-minute every 30, it will reduce the amount of time your body is inactive.
