Are standing desks a good idea?

As we are all aware, there are more people working from home now than ever before. If you are one of them, this can be a blessing and a curse! 

The ergonomics of your work station, whether at home or at the office, is crucial to your longevity.

Our spines crave motion. The discs between our vertebrae need to be put throught normal ranges of motion to keep the fluid moving through them so they stay healthy. Staying in one poisition for hours and hours every day can bring unwanted stiffness, lack of mobility, pain, and (eventually) degenerative changes. 

For a work space solution, I actually prefer a Hi/Lo desk where you have the option of standing or sitting, where you can switch back and forth throughout the day depending on how you're feeling. 

Motion is life. Things that don't move decay and die. We don't want that!
