Some Basic Rules
Do you think that you can just break into the world of standing people without any consequences? Everything has to be done with moderation. That`s a life rule, by the way. You`d better start with twenty minutes of working at the standing desk.
Prolong the time day by day. Otherwise, your legs and spine will get very tired soon, and this whole plan of sticking to a healthier lifestyle will come to an inevitable end.
I hope that there is no point of reminding you of this, but just in case you don`t quite realize it.
Plus, girls, no high heels when you`re standing for such a long time. You should wear the most comfortable shoes possible. Also, please do yourself a favor and stop wearing those extra tight jeans at least when you`re in the working environment. Those pants which have a negative effect on the blood flow and a standing desk just won`t get along.
Remember that standing is not enough, you should move around the office or apartment more often. Or you can try different yoga poses while you`re standing still.
