Benefits of a Standing Desk

What is a standing desk, and could you benefit from one? 

 

A standing desk is a desk that elevates to standing height allowing you to complete work tasks in a different position. There are so many careers that require sitting at a desk. With the number of hours spent at work, do you ever wonder if sitting too much is causing you harm? Could a standing desk make you feel better? One study found that using a standing desk reduced neck and upper back pain by 54%. It also helps to burn calories, improve focus, lower blood sugar and elevate your mood.
