6 Tips to Use a Standing Desk Correctly 

Posture, energy expenditure, and sedentary behavior benefits make standing workstations appealing. Effective standing desk use is key to obtaining these benefits without strain. Use these six standing desk tips:  

Gradually introduce standing desks to beginners. Stand for 30–60 minutes at first, then increase as your body adjusts. Switch between sitting and standing throughout the day to find your balance.  

1. Start Slowly  

Make sure your standing desk is the right height for healthy posture. Type with your elbows at 90 degrees and wrists neutral. Adjust the desk height to make your screen eye-level to reduce neck strain.  

2. Desk Height Adjustment  

Standing on a cushioned or anti-fatigue mat reduces foot, knee, and back stress. Choose a mat with enough support and gentle movement to assist circulation.  

3. Use a comfy mat  

Stand tall, shoulders relaxed and pulled back, and core muscles engaged to support spine. Avoid prolonged workstation slouching. Move your weight between your feet and bend your knees to lessen joint stress.  

4. Correct Posture  

Take regular breaks to sit or walk to avoid standing. Stretch your legs, shoulders, and neck during breaks to reduce stiffness and enhance circulation. Stand and do calf raises or toe taps to increase blood flow.  

5. Break and Move  

Standing desk users should wear cushioned, arch-supported shoes. Avoid high heels and other foot-pressure shoes to avoid discomfort and tiredness.  

6. Wear supportive shoes
