Create an Active Workstation
By now you’ve probably seen standing desks, treadmill desks, funky-looking office chairs, and under-desk ellipticals. What you may not have seen are the studies that back the effectiveness of active workstations for decreasing sedentary behavior. When office workers are given the opportunity to stand and move while remaining at their desks, they tend to take it.
For a functional and reasonably affordable solution, see if your HR department will spring for height-adjustable desks, like the UpDesk, that you can transition from sitting- to standing-height throughout the day. But if an adjustable desk isn’t in the budget, do your research before buying a lower-cost variety.
Once you’ve got your workstation set up, look for other tools to keep you moving. For instance, the FluidStance Deck is basically a work-friendly balance tool that mimics the movement of board sports like skateboarding and snowboarding. How cool is that? Plus, it’s been clinically proven to increase heart rate and range of motion compared to standing still.
