Stand Up Desk from Brixton Banks

Stand up desks are a new trend right now that benefits our health and wellness. It’s been proven that sitting all day at our desks is contributing to many health problems. The new Stand Up desk from Brixton Banks is a wonderful solution to that problem.

When I saw this cool new desk, I knew I had to start using one! Sitting at the desk creates so many problems with our health: namely, back problems. To alleviate lower back pain, standing at your desk instead of sitting forces your muscles to be working while you are working.’

On the Brixton Banks website we learn the health benefits of standing and working:

Scientific studies claim that sitting all day is bad for your health. While that seems to be common sense you may not realize exactly how bad sitting behind a computer all day truly is.

There is more going on than just fatigue and back or neck pain or simply being uncomfortable. A sedentary lifestyle deactivates the hormone lipase which slows down your metabolism and causes you to gain weight.

This can happen within 20 minutes of being inactive. Meanwhile your red blood cells clump and thicken inside of your blood vessels slowing down circulation, insulin production slows down, energy that has not been expended from food, also known as fat, begins to deposit on your internal organs and LPP1 – a gene that suppresses inflammation and clotting shuts off.

I LOVE this desk! It’s beautiful, first of all. And it’s very lightweight, so it can be easily moved from room to room or even outside if you are using your laptop. It worked perfect on our kitchen table for my son to use it, and  it works great for people of multiple heights sharing it. It’s perfect for active families that are looking to decrease their time sitting, and trying to incorporate more healthy options like standing.

You can get your standing desk at Brixtonbanks.com and be sure to follow them on Pinterest, Facebook, and Instagram! 🙂

This indie marketplace is a juried (or curated – which means you must be accepted in based upon selection criteria) online emporium with the goal of promoting emerging indie artists & designers & introducing high quality environmentally friendly wares to a broader audience.

There have been some astounding applicants that have just blown me away! I’m really looking forward to putting this together!
