damaging your health.
Prolonged sitting is not just bad for your back, it affects your breathing, digestion and every aspect of your health and performance, including engagement, concentration and focus.
If you always work at your computer or laptop in a seated position, you are doubling your risk of obesity by the daily time spent sitting*. It’s therefore essential for you to add movement to your working day.

It’s not all about standing up!The key is to alternate between sitting and standing
in order to move more.
By alternating between sitting and standing at your desk you’ll engage in a healthy cycle of motion and actively reduce the risks of sedentary working such as obesity, heart disease, cancer and diabetes.
There are plenty of things you can do to be more active, like using the stairs instead of the lift, visiting a colleague at their desk instead of emailing them, or standing up when using the phone. But by far the best way to encourage a disciplined cycle of motion is to consider a Sit-Stand working solution.
