So standing desks has been a trend for the last few years because we have all heard how bad it is to sit all day. But is standing all day any better? According to a new study from the Institute of Work and Health, people who use standing desks are twice as likely to develop a heart disease. Apparently the reason is because when you stand for long periods of time your body has to work a lot harder to pump the blood from your legs back up into your heart.
So if you have a standing desk that you love. Consider getting a stool or a tall chair to be able to do a mix of standing and sitting throughout the day.
