There is no denying that each product has its advantages and disadvantages. Despite the great practicality advantage, standing desks are also suitable for some people and not others. In addition, sit-stand desks have some disadvantages.
1. Improve mood and energy levels
Sitting all day, eating, and then sitting again can lead to laziness. No matter how great the music or the conversation, if you sit, the excitement turns into relaxation.
When your body is completely at rest and your posture is bent, energy levels and mood drop. This will affect your productivity and work environment.
2. Standing desk can be adjusted according to preference
Everyone has their own preferences for standing or sitting. Sit-stand desks give people more options.
They are convenient and can be adjusted according to the comfort of the user. Furniture is purchased at the office or in-person for personal use. Understanding how furniture will benefit people when they buy it is critical.
Sit-stand desks are manufactured in an adjustable way so they can fit different people, their space, their lifestyle, and their activity requirements.
3. Sit-stand desks are a bargain
As far as furniture goes, a sit-stand desk is a smart solution. No one invests in furniture every day, and if you have back pain on some days, you won't be able to keep buying new furniture.
Sometimes you're too tired to stand, a sit-stand desk is a one-time solution to your changing moods and choices. Sure, they cost only a little more than a regular desk, but you get a solid solution.
4. Sit-stand desks can boost productivity
When people use sit-stand desks, they are less likely to become lazy. As health and mood improve, so does work motivation. Also, change is good for any environment.
5. Buying a standing desk is not irreversible
The best part about a sit-stand desk is that you won't regret buying it. Desks designed for sitting or standing don't have a lot of room to choose from.
If you can't get used to standing, then you can simply use a sit-stand desk for sitting and vice versa.
Disadvantages of sit-stand desks
1. It takes time to get used to a sit-stand desk
If you're used to working while sitting, you'll need time to get used to using the mouse and keeping your eyes on the monitor. Also, it takes time for your body to adjust to the transition from sitting to standing.
2. Standing desks don’t help with weight loss
There is no evidence that sit-stand desks prevent obesity or cause weight loss. Losing weight or not depends on whether you take advantage of your standing desk to get around. If you're just standing, the calorie loss won't be huge.
However, if you use a sit-stand desk, you can prevent calorie intake and obesity.
3. Standing for too long may increase body posture problems
If you already have body posture problems, standing for too long can increase your posture problems. If you stand crooked, the impact will only increase if your back isn't getting enough rest.
4. Your office may look a little cluttered
If not managed properly, your office space can look a little cluttered with half the people standing and the other half sitting. This is especially a problem if your employees have booths next to each other in a hall.
5. Sit-stand desks can be distracting
If someone is standing, they are likely to be distracted by those around them. It requires concentration to avoid the outside world where you are standing in the middle of the movement.
While sit-stand desks can improve productivity, employees should be mindful of whether they are easily distracted.
Issues associated with sit-stand desks vary from person to person. If they are used properly, with proper sitting and standing times, then it can increase productivity and reduce health problems.
Most of the disadvantages of standing desks can be turned into advantages if sitting and standing time are effectively managed.
