Is a Standing Desk Good for You??

Embrace the Uplift: Why a Standing Desk is Good for You

In today’s fast-paced world, we often find ourselves glued to our seats for hours on end, whether at work, school, or home. This sedentary lifestyle can take a toll on our health and well-being in the long run. However, a simple yet effective solution has been gaining popularity in recent years – the standing desk. Standing desks have emerged as a beacon of hope for those seeking to break free from the shackles of prolonged sitting, offering a myriad of benefits for both physical and mental health.

1. Combat Sedentary Lifestyle

One of the most significant advantages of using a standing desk is its ability to combat the sedentary lifestyle that has become all too common in modern society. Research has shown that excessive sitting is associated with various health issues, including obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and even certain types of cancer. By standing while working, you can reduce the amount of time spent sitting and lower your risk of developing these chronic conditions.

2. Improve Posture and Reduce Back Pain

Sitting for prolonged periods can wreak havoc on your posture and lead to back, neck, and shoulder pain. Conversely, standing encourages better alignment of the spine and engages core muscles, thereby promoting good posture. Many users report a reduction in back pain and stiffness after making the switch to a standing desk. Additionally, incorporating periodic stretches and movements while standing can further alleviate muscle tension and enhance flexibility.

3. Boost Energy and Productivity

It’s no secret that physical activity is closely linked to increased energy levels and productivity. Standing while working can help stimulate blood flow and oxygen circulation, leading to improved focus, concentration, and cognitive function. Many individuals find that they feel more energized and alert when they use a standing desk, leading to enhanced work performance and efficiency throughout the day.

4. Burn More Calories

Standing burns more calories than sitting, albeit the difference may seem marginal at first glance. However, over time, these additional calories burned can add up and contribute to weight management and overall metabolic health. While standing alone is not a substitute for regular exercise, it can complement an active lifestyle and help you maintain a healthier weight.

5. Enhance Mood and Mental Well-being

Physical activity has been shown to have a profound impact on mental health, with regular exercise known to reduce symptoms of anxiety, depression, and stress. Standing desks provide an opportunity to incorporate more movement into your daily routine, which can positively influence your mood and overall sense of well-being. The act of standing while working can promote feelings of empowerment and vitality, fostering a more positive outlook on work and life.


Standing all day is also not good for your health. You want to have a nice balance between sitting and standing throughout the day. This is where the electric standing desk comes in to its own. Being easily adjustable between sitting and standing means it will get used to its maximum benefit. Remember movement is key to a healthy lifestyle!


In conclusion, the benefits of using a standing desk extend far beyond simply breaking the monotony of sitting. From improving posture and reducing back pain to boosting energy levels and enhancing mood, the advantages are numerous and compelling. While standing desks may not be suitable for everyone or every task, integrating periods of standing into your daily routine can have a profound impact on your health and quality of life. So, why not take a stand – quite literally – and uplift your well-being with a standing desk? Your body and mind will thank you for it.

I purchased an EDesk this month from Ergomotion, and it was a remarkably smooth transaction. Guy was eager to answer all my questions before my purchase. As a first-time buyer of a standing desk, I truly appreciated how he addressed my queries with thorough details and provided options within my budget.

The delivery process was also smooth, despite a slight delay in the ETA. Guy ensured I received all necessary updates from the courier/removalist.

I've been using the desk for a couple of weeks now and I'm satisfied with it. It's sturdy on all height adjustments and the motor works as expected. I also like oak finish because it's clean-looking and suits my room setup.

Overall, I'm happy with my purchase and I'll definitely recommend Ergomotion to someone looking for their desk needs.

I've had an ergomotion desk for 10 years. It's still as good today as it was brand new. Over the years Guy has always responded promptly to any guidance I've needed (mostly help putting the desk back together after removalists take it apart).

Skip the big name brands and buy from Guy instead, 10/10 linak parts with a very well built tabletop.

I purchased the edesk from Guy at Ergomotion. Guy was a pleasure to deal with and the desk arrived the next day. Guy was highly knowledgeable on the desk and provided very prompt support on the installation. I can highly recommend Ergomotion.
