Finally, many people are deciding to switch to a standing desk after seeing one too many studies or infographs about the dangers of sitting all day.  At first, many people found that standing for long periods was a little rocky but soon felt a lot better after a couple of weeks.  Their #1 recommendation was investing in a good floor mat to stand on.  One example of a good floor mat would be one that we currently sell on our website.  After adjusting to the floor mat, many will find no discomfort at all while standing.  It will come to a point where standing will feel more natural than having to sit all day.

I think it's great to see how far along standing desks and ergonomics have come in just a few years.  You are starting to see standing desks being used in the classroom.  When using the stand-up desks, students tend to be more engaged in discussion and more willing to volunteer in the classroom.  Teachers have also seen their student's social behavior be more positive towards other students in the classroom.  It's also great to see when companies go out of their way to improve their employees' health and overall well-being.  Audi improved ergonomics for assembly workings with the "chairless chair."  It always workers to sit without a chair, improves their posture and reduces the strain on their legs.  I can't wait to see where ergonomics and standing desks take us this year!
