Do you spend at least 6 hours, a day, seated at your desk in front of your computer? Do you suffer from bad posture — turtle neck — or aches in your back and neck? If you said yes to any of the previous questions, it might be a sign that you need to upgrade your work desk situation.
Here are 4 reasons why you need to get a height-adjustable study table now:
Huxley Adjustable Study Table 1.2m (White, Oak) — $549 | Shop here
1. Provides an optimal working position for every height
If you're currently sharing your workspace with someone else, particularly someone of a different height, height-adjustable tables would be the best study table for you. Height-adjustable study desks give you the ability to find the perfect working position, regardless of your height. Whether you're 1.4m or 1.8m tall, you'll definitely be able to find the perfect table height that will allow you to work comfortably, whilst maintaining good posture.
Height adjustable tables are also a great choice for children, since their height changes both often and very quickly, allowing your child to grow together with their table.
For maximum comfort, your table height should be adjusted such that your elbows and underarms are able to lie completely straight on the table and armrests, with a 90-110° angle at the elbow.
2. It's time to take a stand for your physical health
Regardless of whether you're maintaining a healthy ergonomic posture, sitting all day has negative consequences on your health. Studies have demonstrated a positive correlation between the amount of hours one sits at their desks and their risk of diabetes, obesity, heart disease and premature mortality. Long periods of sitting can slow metabolism, impairing the body's ability to break down fat and regulate glucose and blood pressure. Standing, on the other hand, allows you to burn as much as three times the amount of calories that you would typically burn from sitting in your seat.
With a height-adjustable desk, you will be able to alternate between sitting and standing, which is a great method for keeping our bodies healthy and preventing illness. Regular movement adjusts the amount of load placed on our bodies and increases specific body part rest intervals, ultimately reducing the adverse effect of risk factors for various illness and keeping us healthier in the long-run.
3. Reduced fatigue and stress
Sitting down immediately after your meal can contribute to a sluggish feeling, most commonly known as a food coma. With a height-adjustable desk, you'll be able to combat your food coma by standing instead of slouching into your chair, allowing you to maintain your levels of alertness and productivity — which tend to drop as the day goes by.
This particular argument has also been supported by various studies, which have demonstrated that workers who utilise standing desks tend to experience lower levels of stress and fatigue than their colleagues, who spend majority of their day seated at their tables. These lower levels of stress and fatigue are also often accompanied by an increase in energy throughout the day.
Feeling fidgety or exhausted in the middle of the day? A simple switch in position from sitting to standing can be a great way to keep you feeling alert and increase your energy levels
4. Increased productivity
Ultimately, when all of the previously mentioned benefits are combined, the use of a height-adjustable desk can contribute to an overall increase in productivity.
Remaining seated and sedentary for large portions of the day can do some serious damage to your health — both physical and mental. Making this simple lifestyle change with a height-adjustable study table can do wonders for your health. Why not take a stand and prioritise your health with a height-adjustable study table today?
