In recent years, lift desks have become increasingly popular. This is because sitting at work is unhealthy. With the rapid development of the domestic economy, health has become the focus of public attention, and occupational diseases caused by sedentary office work have gradually been paid attention to by the public, thus ushering in the era of office lifts.
In this article, we discuss the reasons for choosing an adjustable desk.
1. A sedentary lifestyle is more harmful than you think
According to the World Health Organization, a sedentary lifestyle is one of the top 10 causes of death and disability. Lack of physical activity increases mortality from all diseases and doubles the risk of cardiovascular disease, diabetes and obesity. If it increases, it will also increase the risk of colon cancer, hypertension, osteoporosis, lipid disorders, depression, anxiety and other diseases.
If you sit for a long time every day, the calorie intake is greater than the calorie consumption, the body fat is easy to accumulate, and the weight will increase.
(2). Memory decline
Sitting for a long time, blood circulation slows down, resulting in insufficient blood supply to the brain, resulting in mental depression, manifested as tiredness, lethargy, and yawning.
(3). Lumbar disease
Sitting in a sitting position for a long time, the whole body weight is pressed on the lower part of the spine, and the shoulders and neck are inactive for a long time, it is easy to cause the stiffness of the cervical spine, which can seriously lead to the deformation of the spine and lead to the hyperplasia of the arched back bone.

Regular exercise can boost a person's appetite. In contrast, prolonged sitting and lack of systemic exercise will weaken the gastrointestinal motility, reduce the secretion of digestive juices, and cause symptoms such as loss of appetite, indigestion, and fullness over time.
(5). Gynecological diseases
Sedentary female compatriots are also prone to gynecological diseases. Many women get cervical disease not because of poor hygiene habits, but because of prolonged sitting. Sitting for a long time will hinder the generation of immune cells, resulting in decreased resistance, coupled with poor blood circulation, it is easy to cause gynecological diseases such as cervicitis.
2. Benefits of a sit-stand work lifestyle

Prolonged sitting is a risk factor for low back pain. A sit-to-work lifestyle can reduce the risk of back, shoulder and neck pain.
