Want to Burn More Calories Each Day? You Won’t Believe How Easy It Is! by Mei Marcie
Want to burn more calories? Simply stand up more! A study has shown that switching evenly between sitting and standing over an eight-hour day could result in an additional burn of 56.9 calories for men and 48.3 calories for women. While this is modest, it can be effective when combined with other low-intensity activities to hit 100 calories burned per day. We all know it can be hard to find the time to exercise, so even smaller amounts of burned calories can help with weight management.
Standing desks have also been studied and found to increase productivity and energy, lower pain, lower blood sugar and potentially even blood pressure. There are a variety of standing desks available, including height-adjustable stands that are placed on your current desktop. Try one out before buying – they're available in a variety of price points!
