Affordable Standing Desks That Are Good to Both You and Your Wallet

Numerous studies have shown that sitting in a chair all day might be bad for you health and could lead to long term health risks. Even if you do exercise for 30 minutes everyday, sitting for most of the day could increase your risk of obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and more. Some of us spend more time sitting, whether it is at work or sitting in traffic, than sleeping and that is very alarming.

“It doesn’t matter if you go running every morning, or you’re a regular at the gym. If you spend most of the rest of the day sitting—in your car, your office chair, on your sofa at home—you are putting yourself at increased risk of obesity, diabetes, heart disease, a variety of cancers and an early death,” said Olivia Judson in The New York Times. “In other words, irrespective of whether you exercise vigorously, sitting for long periods is bad for you.”

Standing desks are great to combat this growing epidemic but the common myth is that they cost an arm and a leg so we’ve compiled nine standing desks that won’t break your bank account.
