Standing and Stretching

When you spend eight hours a day sitting at a desk, it can be difficult to focus on anything other than your posture. Poor postural habits such as hunching forward and looking down result in an unnatural load being placed onto lumbar discs which are already prone to wear and tear.
The solution: A stand-up workstation! By standing more often and briefly stretching every hour you can help maintain the integrity of your lower back muscles while also promoting good blood flow through increased circulation.
