In office, we often sit for more than 8 hours a day. We know that sitting so long is harmful for our health. People say it contributes to the accumulation of belly fat and research has also shown that it increases the risk of getting heart diseases.
A solution to these problems might be to stand up! Those who stand more at work train their core muscles, especially those on the stomach and the back , reduce the risk of diabetes and thrombosis , and increase their life expectancy.
If that is not enough, a study by psychologist Frank Fischer from LMU Munich shows that standing can help people come up with better thoughts. In their empirical studies, they showed that the people that remained stood had 24% more ideas than those that remained seated.
So the next time we want to get more creative at work, we should try getting up!
