Stand Up for your Health at Work

Stand Up for your Health

Five days a week you’re stuck in the office, and we feel your pain. The truth is, sitting for too long can cause real physical pain. No one wants a pain in the neck or low back, or stiff joints, but what can you do to avoid it? A recent study found that most people spend up to 12 hours a day sitting in front of a computer, on the couch, or in the car. If you add in the average time we sleep at night, that’s a remarkable 19 hours a day being sedentary.

How can you stay healthy and burn necessary calories when you’re sitting much of the day, five days a week? NuLeaf Office Solutions has your solution – work stations that allow you to stand.

While discussing the benefits of standing versus sitting,  Dr. John Buckley of the University of Chester explains, "We can see they [heart rates] are quite a lot higher actually - on average around 10 beats per minute higher and that makes a difference of about 0.7 of a calorie per minute.”

Now that doesn't sound like much, but it adds up to about 50 calories an hour. If you stand for three hours a day for five days that's around 750 calories burnt. Over the course of a year it would add up to about 30,000 extra calories, or around 8 lbs of fat.

"If you want to put that into activity levels," Dr Buckley says, "then that would be the equivalent of running about 10 marathons a year. Just by standing up three or four hours in your day at work."185342
