The scary part is that most humans sit for about 9.3 hours a day, which is more than they sleep!
Office workers are at a larger risk of the negative health impacts of sitting, which is why it’s great there is now an alternative.
A standing desk is an office solution that lets you stand up comfortably, and they are becoming more and more popular in recent times.
