How to finally make the switch to a standing desk

August 03, 2015 Ryan Roberts

You know that sitting isn’t healthy and cancels out your gym workout!
You know that standing while you work improves your health and burns extra calories...

But, you’re still sitting all day!

You’ve wanted to switch to a standing desk, and even rigged up a temporary desk to give it a shot!
But after an hour, you gave up and sat back at your cushy desk chair.

Your arches still ache, Your back still hurts and you still cannot focus on your work.

And after the newness of the idea of standing wore off, it to seemed like a bad idea.

So you sit there...

What if you could bypass the pain and start reaping the health benefits of standing?

You’d stand straighter, You’d feel more energised and you’d watch the kilo's start to drop away!

If you’ve tried unsuccessfully to switch to a standing desk, chances are you made one of TWO mistakes:

1. You started too big

It’s common to feel a rush of enthusiasm when you’re starting something new. Caught up in the moment, you commit yourself to making grand, sweeping changes.

"Starting tomorrow, I’m done sitting!"

But that emotional high vanishes at the first hint of resistance, the first twinge of pain or fatigue, leaving you feeling deflated. You struggle to keep your word to yourself, but the outcome is inevitable.

2. You didn’t make it a habit

Will power alone is rarely enough to bring about lasting change. New behaviours don’t stick unless you’re able to graft them into your day-to-day life and make them as natural as waking up in the morning.

When you walk into your office and head to your standing desk without thinking and without first wishing you could just sit down, you’ll know you have a habit that you can maintain.

To successfully switch to a standing desk, start small and practice daily
