A UCLA study was published finding that sedentary behavior is a significant predictor of thinning of the medial temporal lobe (MTL), the part of the brain responsible for storing and accessing memories. For the visuals, see the "Memory Wall" image from the Pixar movie Inside Out. Imagine these walls thinning over time as people's sedentary behavior increases!
The study included 35 middle-aged and older adults without dementia (25 women, 10 men; 45-75 years). Participants completed MRI scans of their brains as well as the International Physical Activity Questionnaire to measure physical activity, including average hours of sitting per day. The researchers found that as the participants' average sitting time increased, the thickness of the medial temporal lobe (MTL) decreased. For the first time, prolonged sitting is directly related to brain health; as expected, this is an inverse relationship.

Millions of sedentary workers are now enjoying the health benefits of standing desks, and adoption is increasing every day. Standing desks and treadmill desks make you healthier by limiting your sedentary lifestyle in the first place. The average American now sits 9.3 hours a day, and rates of metabolic syndrome (diabetes), certain cancers and a variety of other health problems are increasing every year. In fact, each product category (eg, treadmill desk, desk bike, etc.) keeps you active and healthy in a unique way.

So how do we solve this problem?The answer is to stand up.

In an interview with Medscape Medical News, the study's lead author Prabha Siddarth said: "The finding that sitting reduces the thickness of these important structures is relevant because it suggests that reducing sedentary behavior may be an intervention aimed at improving brain health. A possible target for middle-aged and older adults.” In addition, the study found that even high-intensity physical activity did not offset the harms of prolonged sitting. This means that employees who work 8 hours a day and go to the gym an hour a day are still at risk of long-term memory loss due to sedentary habits.Seeing this, haven't you considered buying a standing table? Put a white standing desk in the office, the color is simple and can bring you unique ease and pleasure in the boring work.Square tabletops offer deeper depth and a full-board design, making the tabletop more spacious and seamless for more secure carrying of work and living items. Two cable grommets are used to manage wires or wires on the standing desk to provide a clean and organized work environment.

Protecting your brain health is another reason to reduce your sitting time and incorporate daily physical activity into your life. But how can we take steps to reduce sitting during busy workdays?

Positive work, positive attitude
Walking breaks are an option, and fitness classes are also available during lunch. But to really reduce your sitting time, you need a way of working that puts physical activity on your desk. This is the reason behind the growing popularity of standing desks and the idea that treadmill desks are more efficient (and revolutionary).Emerging evidence supports the feasibility of replacing office work-related sedentary behaviors with low-intensity non-exercise physical activity (PA) to improve daily energy expenditure (EE) by replacing traditional office chairs and desktop-based computer combinations with wooden standing desks . Since 2000, PubMed retrieved 57 articles in English; additional articles were identified by reviewing reference sections and contacting authors. Selection criteria ultimately focused on the use of surrogates in simulated or actual work tasks, where the use of a sit-stand/standing desk did not affect task performance relative to traditional sitting.

With growing attention to the obesity epidemic in the United States and other developed countries, many organizations have taken steps to incorporate healthy workplace practices. However, most workers remain sedentary throughout the day - a major contributor to individual weight gain. The current study sought to gather preliminary evidence on the effectiveness of active workstations, a possible intervention to increase employees' physical activity at work. We conducted an experimental study in which 4 randomly assigned conditions were assessed and compared: boredom, task satisfaction, stress, arousal at seated workstations, height-adjusted desks, cycling workstations, and walking workstations and performance. In addition, body mass index (BMI) and exercise habits were examined as moderators to determine whether differences in these variables were associated with increased benefit under active conditions. Results (n = 180) showed general support for the benefits of walking workstations, that participants in the walking condition had higher levels of satisfaction and arousal and experienced less boredom and stress than those in the passive condition.

We included 32 studies, of which 5 were longitudinal studies of school-aged children, 10 were longitudinal studies of adults, and 17 were non-longitudinal studies of adults. Sixteen studies investigated standing desks, 15 investigated walking desks, and one investigated cycling workstations. The general findings were reduced sitting time, increased energy expenditure, positive effects on several health indicators, no adverse effects on job performance, no acute effects on cognitive function, and no direct findings on computer task performance.
Conclusions: The implementation of active workstations may help improve people's health and physical activity levels. The effects of using these active workstations on cognitive and applied work tasks (such as computer task performance) require further investigation before conclusions can be drawn. Another area that needs further investigation is the implementation of different activity workstations across all age groups.

Some people have to work from home because of the pandemic, and working on the couch or bed sounds pleasant, but doing so can lead to back and neck pain (aside from the occasional unscheduled nap). In fact, a UK study found that 19% of remote workers work from a sofa and 11% from a bed, and many of these workers also report back or neck pain.Standing desks (especially treadmill desks) are a great option for alleviating health and productivity issues associated with sedentary work at home or in the office. A clinical study found that standing desks alone can reduce back pain by 31%, and countless online testimonials support the study.
For those who are truly committed to maximizing their health and productivity, we highly recommend a bamboo standing desk.Eco-friendly and durable bamboo table tops support sustainable consumption and production patterns. Bamboo's unique texture is a gift from nature, leading us to embrace nature. Calm down, slow down, and enjoy a life-work balance.

Working healthily and efficiently from home can be difficult, especially if you don't have the right equipment. The allure of answering emails in bed or on the couch is real, but so are the consequences. Unergonomic, sedentary work like this can take a toll on your body, especially your neck and back. It's much better to create an active workstation for yourself where you can focus on your work, stay ergonomically fit, and incorporate healthy movement into your day, now you can do it with all the available and cheap standing desks to this point.
