I can work non-stop on my Mac for hours. Hours, I tell you! I can zone out working on a design or a business plan the same way I do during a marathon. Before I know it, hours have passed. Now, multiply that by days, and weeks, and months, and I’ve learned through this recent CNN article that, despite my daily workouts, I still risk dying early because I’m sitting too long at my desk. Ugh. It freaks me out.
Thankfully, this new company made up of young, health-conscious, and forward-thinking individuals found a solution for us. Enter the Philippine’s first standing desk: Stance.
Stance offers different models of standing desks, but I’m quite happy with mine. It’s in black, sturdy yet sleek. I can easily adjust its height with the pull of a lever. When not in use, I can push it down so it isn’t even bothersome.
Working while standing took a bit of getting used to but, after a couple of days, I found that it allows me to focus better, keeps me more alert, allows for more blood circulation, and, if what all these experts are saying is true, then this standing desk is actually helping me to live longer!
