Affordable Standing Desks and Treadmill Desks

Affordable Standing Desks and Treadmill Desks

Let’s face it. No matter how much you love your work, if your office space setup isn’t making your job easier, then it’s making it harder. And, who needs that? In 2016, treat yourself to an office desk that not only aids in your productivity but your overall heath as well. If you are worried about the cost, don’t. As standing desks and treadmill desks are becoming more mainstream, you’d be surprised to learn that with the worldwide adoption, they are becoming more affordable as well.

Treadmill Desks Benefits

The primary health benefit to working while using a treadmill desk is the amount of hours you replaced sitting with moving. Firstly, a treadmill desk is not meant for exercise – it’s not meant to be used to “work out” while you work. The treadmill desk is meant to incorporate movement into your workday. One would not exceed .8 mph, which will hardly give you an excuse not to go to the gym. But, that is exactly what the treadmill desk is designed for. By working with movement, you are burning more calories, increasing circulation and, after awhile, you forget you are moving.

Standing Desk Benefits

In the not-so-distant past, standing desks (or height-adjustable desks) were viewed as outliers in the world of office furniture in Houston. The overall benefits of standing workstations had not yet been entirely proven and it was not uncommon to be met with a hefty price tag. Those interested in experimenting with a standing desk often had to creatively hack their own solutions. However, the tide has shifted as many companies now endorse standing desks as a wellness initiative for employees. A standing desk encourages more movement throughout the day, which increases blood flow, calories burned and more.

4 Reasons to Love Height Adjustable Desks

Standing desks and treadmill desks can be the gateway to a healthier life. You’ll feel more energized and focused. Imagine walking off that heavy feeling after lunch or adding some mileage to your day while on a conference call. When you feel healthy, it’s easier to eat right and to be motivated to exercise more.  With those benefits, you can’t afford NOT to get one!
