So far this month I’ve been banging on about how bad it is for your body to sit in a poor posture and given you tips on how to move regularly and achieve ‘good posture’ while you sit…
But is there an even better alternative?
What about standing? Is that any better for you?
Standing inherently stimulates more muscle activity and therefore improves your metabolism and burns more energy. Standing has also been proven to improve concentration, productivity and mental health- YAY!
However, standing also puts more load on the circulatory system (think varicose veins), isn’t quite as efficient for performing fine motor tasks (like typing fast), plus standing still at a a desk is very tiring.
So what’s the answer?
