How Sitting Is Killing You

07 April, 2014

A sedentary lifestyle, including sitting for long periods of time is wreaking havoc on your health - researchers have even called sitting the new smoking! Numerous studies indicate that heart disease, diabetes, and obesity rates are doubled or even tripled for individuals who spend a significant amount of time sitting down and even regular moderate to vigorous exercise does not counteract the damage. 

By standing instead of sitting you can burn an extra 60 calories an hour, improve your HDL (good cholesterol) levels and lower your risk of heart disease, diabetes, and obesity. After about 20 minutes of sitting the circulation of lipase, an enzyme that moves fat into muscle tissue to be burned as energy instead of stored as fat, nearly shuts off. Just by standing you can naturally activate lipase and promote fat burning. Standing and working is not only good for your health, it has also been proven to increase cognitive function and productivity. Stand Up Desk Pro makes it easy to transition between sitting and standing at your workstation throughout the day. You don’t need to stand up for hours on end; standing for 10-15 minute intervals every 20 to 30 minutes makes a big impact.
