If you want to lose weight, regularly using a standing desk is a smart way to remain dedicated to a healthy level of activity throughout your work day. Tip: try standing for at least 3 hours each day.
Standing burns at least 1/3 more calories compared to sitting. There’s also enjoy the additional health benefits of reducing your blood sugar and cholesterol levels. And mitigating back and neck pains from poor posture!
This might make you wonder: exactly how many calories will you burn using a standing desk?
