What would you say if we told you that you could improve your workplace productivity with one simple change? It sounds impossible, but with standing workstations, you can do just that.

Standing Can Benefit Your Workplace

There are a variety of scientifically proven benefits of standing (as opposed to sitting) while working.


Standing workstations are guaranteed to:


  • Reduce pain and discomfort
  • Increase energy levels
  • Promote increased brain power and improved focus


By reducing pain caused by sitting, you can focus more on your work and therefore increase your productivity. There are also a multitude of accessories for your standing workstations that can make standing at your desk more enjoyable! If this is something you’re interested in, keep reading!

Reduce Pain and Discomfort

Sitting all day can be extremely uncomfortable. The human body was not made to be seated for long periods of time, and doing so often leads to chronic back pain, joint pain, and even headaches. All of this pain can be distracting, which can lead to decreased productivity.


If you want to eliminate this discomfort, standing workstations can be a good addition to your workplace. Office Furniture Direct has high-quality standing workstations that are comfortable, height-adjustable, and designed to reduce discomfort.

Increase Energy Levels

Sitting all day can be more tiring than you’d think. It has been proven that taking a break to walk around in small bursts throughout the day improves your energy levels. Standing workstations facilitate that.


Being on your feet can help you to avoid the mid-afternoon slump and aid in increased focus and productivity. By not being restricted to a chair all day, you’ll be able to move around and maintain high energy levels throughout the day.

Promote Increased Brain Power and Improved Focus

The act of standing increases the circulation of oxygen to your brain. On the other hand, sitting all day slows down the rate of circulation, which can affect your blood flow over time.


The part of your brain that is responsible for critical thinking receives a portion of these new cells, which allows you to be more focused on the task at hand. Engaging in frequent movement also releases endorphins, which are the hormones responsible for reducing stress and promoting good moods.
