So you might have seen this topic floating around recently: is standing at a desk better for you than sitting?
I think the article linked from the bottom of this blog to www.healthline.com covers most pros and cons of sitting versus standing. As we all know sitting for long periods of time can have a negative impact on our health, but so can standing for a long period of time. I think finding a balance of both like everything is the way forward:
• try building movement into your day so you’re not just standing or sitting in the same position all the time, or
• think about tasks that could be done standing rather then sitting, such as phone calls, and set aside a time to do a few in a row
Whether you’re standing or sitting the most important thing is your posture; try to focus on sitting and standing up straight, and make sure your workspace is set up correctly to reduce the risk of repetitive strain injuries, backache, and neck strain.
