- A recent study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine found that sitting for too long can be deleterious to your health, regardless of whether or not you exercise. That’s right folks, even if you work out an hour or so every morning but proceed to sit for the rest of the day, you still have an increased your chances for an early death, cancer, and diabetes. Lucky for you, the desk in step #2 has a way to help keep you strong and healthy.
- Stir released the second version of their automated sitting/standing desk, Sitr Kinectic Desk. With a built-in touchscreen to respond to your personal input and goals, the M1 Kinetic Desk will let you know when it’s time to sit and stand to optimize your productivity and health. The desk uses a breathe-imitating mechanism to gently move up and down when it’s time to switch from sitting to standing or vice versa. Plus, it syncs with your Fitbit for a better, interconnected fitness experience. The newer M1 version of the desk is pricey at $2,990, but with a boasted 90% customer satisfaction, it could be a worthwhile purchase.
