Celebrating On Your Feet Britain® 2024

Step into the rhythm of movement and vitality as we mark the calendar for On Your Feet Britain®, a nationwide call to action fostering activity and combatting sedentary habits.

This month we celebrate On Your Feet Britain®, a national activity awareness day dedicated to promoting movement and reducing sedentary behaviour in the workplace. On Thursday, 25th April, 2024, we invite you to participate in this fun and free event aimed at rebooting and energising workplace habits.

What is On Your Feet Britain®?

On Your Feet Britain® is a national initiative that encourages desk-based workers across the UK to #SitLess and #MoveMore at work. With over 2 million participants, this event offers a variety of simple and enjoyable activities to promote a more active lifestyle in the office.

On Your Feet Britain® emerged as a response to the growing recognition of the health risks associated with prolonged sitting in the workplace. The initiative was born out of a collaborative effort from the minds behind Get Britain Standing, including health experts, workplace wellness advocates, and organisations committed to promoting employee well-being. With sedentary behaviour becoming increasingly prevalent in modern office environments, there was a pressing need to raise awareness and encourage positive behaviour change.

The inaugural On Your Feet Britain® event took place in 2015. Since then, the initiative has gained significant momentum, attracting participation from millions of desk-based workers across Britain. Over the years, On Your Feet Britain® has evolved to encompass a diverse array of initiatives and campaigns aimed at fostering a more active workplace culture, encouraging participants to try simple yet effective ways to incorporate movement into their daily routines.

Beyond promoting physical health, On Your Feet Britain® also emphasises the importance of mental well-being and productivity. Research has shown that regular movement throughout the day can enhance concentration, boost mood, and improve overall job satisfaction. By empowering employees to take control of their health and well-being, the initiative contributes to a more vibrant and engaged workforce.

As On Your Feet Britain® continues to gain traction, it serves as a powerful reminder of the collective impact that small changes in behaviour can have on individual health and organisational culture. By encouraging desk-based workers to #SitLess and #MoveMore, the initiative inspires a shift towards a healthier and more dynamic approach to work.

Why Participate?

Research has consistently demonstrated the detrimental effects of prolonged sitting on physical and mental health. Sedentary behaviour is linked to an increased risk of chronic health conditions such as obesity, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and musculoskeletal disorders. Moreover, long hours of sitting can contribute to feelings of fatigue, stress, and reduced productivity.

By embracing the principles of On Your Feet Britain®, you'll not only improve your own health and well-being but also contribute to a more vibrant, productive, and engaged workforce. Incorporating regular movement breaks and adopting standing-based work habits such as standing desks can have a transformative impact.

So why wait? Join us in the movement towards healthier, more active workplaces today!

Participating in On Your Feet Britain® is easy and free! Simply register for the event and encourage your workplace and colleagues to join the #BigWiggle.

Stand During Phone Calls: Instead of sitting at your desk, stand up and move around while you're on the phone. This small change can add up to significant benefits over time.

Take Regular Breaks: Set a timer to remind yourself to take a break from your computer every 30 minutes. Use this time to stretch, walk around, or do some light exercises to keep your body active.

Use the Stairs: Opt for the stairs instead of the elevator whenever possible. Climbing stairs is a great way to incorporate physical activity into your daily routine and strengthen your muscles.

Arrange Standing or Walking Meetings: Instead of sitting around a conference table, suggest holding meetings while standing or walking.

Eat Away from Your Desk: Take a break from your workstation during lunchtime and eat your meal in a different area, such as a break room or outdoor space.

Walk to Colleagues' Desks: Instead of sending emails or making phone calls, take a few minutes to walk to a colleague's desk for a face-to-face conversation.

What Height Should My Standing Desk Be?

Posted by Shopify API on

Posted by Gavin Bradley | March 28, 2024

What Height Should My Standing Desk Be? 

Explore the importance of proper desk height and discover tips to find the right height for your standing desk in our helpful guide.

Proper desk height is more than just a matter of convenience; it's a crucial aspect of creating a workspace that supports your overall health and well-being. Whether you're sitting or standing at your sit-stand desk, the alignment of your body plays a significant role in preventing discomfort, fatigue, and musculoskeletal issues.

In this guide, we'll help you find the perfect height for your standing desk to maximise ergonomic comfort and productivity. Discover how proper desk height impacts your overall health and well-being, and learn key considerations for setting up your workspace. Let's get started!

How Do I Find the Right Height for My Standing Desk?

Determining the optimal height for your standing desk depends on various factors, including your height, posture, and comfort preferences. Here are some quick guidelines to help you find the right desk height for your needs:

Elbow position: A common method for determining standing desk height is to adjust it so that your elbows are bent at a 90-degree angle when typing or using your keyboard. This position ensures that your wrists are aligned with your elbows or slightly below, promoting ergonomic wrist positioning and reducing strain.

Monitor position: Your monitor should be positioned at eye level or slightly below to maintain a neutral neck position and minimise neck strain. Adjust the height of your standing desk accordingly to achieve this optimal monitor position.

Posture and comfort: Stand tall with your shoulders relaxed and spine neutral when using your standing desk. Experiment with different desk heights until you find a position that feels comfortable and allows you to maintain proper posture throughout the day.

For Example:

If you're 5 feet 6 inches tall and prefer to have your elbows at a 90-degree angle when typing, your standing desk height may be approximately 39 to 42 inches.

For someone taller, such as 6 feet tall, the optimal desk height may be slightly higher, around 42 to 45 inches, to accommodate their height and maintain ergonomic wrist and monitor positioning.

Alternatively, if you primarily use your standing desk for tasks that involve reading or viewing documents on your monitor, you may prefer a lower desk height that positions the monitor at eye level or slightly below for optimal viewing comfort.

Remember to adjust your desk height based on your individual preferences and ergonomic needs to create a comfortable and productive workspace.

Tips to Position Your Monitor

Ideal screen distance of 50-70cm: Positioning your monitor at a distance of 50 to 70 centimetres from your eyes is recommended for optimal eye health. This distance minimises eye strain, fatigue, and discomfort, ensuring a comfortable viewing experience and reducing the risk of long-term vision-related problems.

Head and vision positioning: Maintain your head in an upright position and direct your vision to the top half of the screen. By doing so, you encourage better posture and reduce the likelihood of neck and shoulder discomfort associated with prolonged screen use. Additionally, this positioning helps prevent eye strain and promotes overall comfort and productivity throughout the workday.

Tilt your monitor at 20 degrees: To achieve ergonomic viewing, it's recommended to tilt your monitor at approximately 20 degrees. This tilt helps alleviate neck strain and encourages a more natural posture while working, promoting comfort and reducing the risk of musculoskeletal issues.

Tips for Wrist Alignment and Elbow Positioning

Maintaining proper wrist alignment is essential for ergonomic comfort and preventing strain during prolonged periods of work at a standing desk. Ensure that your wrists are positioned at or slightly below elbow height to achieve a neutral wrist posture. This alignment helps alleviate tension and reduces the risk of discomfort or injury.

Incorrect wrist positioning, such as typing with wrists too high or too low, can lead to discomfort, fatigue, and potential repetitive strain injuries (RSIs) like carpal tunnel syndrome. Proper alignment is crucial for reducing the strain on your wrists and promoting long-term comfort and health in the workplace.

To achieve optimal wrist alignment, adjust your desk height accordingly. Experiment with different heights until you find a position that allows your elbows to rest comfortably at a 90-degree angle while typing, with your wrists in a neutral position.

Tips for Posture and Avoiding Fatigue

When using a sit-stand desk, it's essential to maintain good posture to avoid pain and fatigue. Stand tall with your shoulders relaxed, spine neutral, and feet flat on the floor. Keep your head up, eyes focused on the screen's top half, and wrists aligned with your elbows or slightly below.

In addition to maintaining proper posture, taking regular movement breaks throughout the day can help prevent pain and fatigue. Set reminders to stretch, walk around, or perform simple exercises to keep your muscles active and blood flowing. These short breaks can refresh your body and mind, improving productivity and overall well-being.

Another effective strategy for reducing pain and fatigue while standing at your desk is to use an anti-fatigue mat. These mats are specifically designed to provide cushioning and support, which can help alleviate pressure on your feet, legs, and lower back. By standing on an anti-fatigue mat, you can minimise discomfort and fatigue, allowing you to stand for longer periods with greater ease.

Taiwanese Study: Risks of Prolonged Desk Sitting

Recent research from Taiwanese scientists, published by JAMA Network Open, has uncoveredconcerning health risks associated with prolonged periods of sitting at work.

Analysing health outcomes over a 20-year period for nearly 500,000 individuals, the study foundthat constant sitters faced a 16% higher risk of early death from all causes and a staggering34% increased risk of mortality from cardiovascular disease. These findings highlight the needto reevaluate workplace habits and incorporate measures to mitigate the potential dangersof extended sitting.

Key Findings:

  • Increased Mortality Risk: The study tracked health outcomes, adjusting for variables such as sex, age, smoking, drinking, and body mass index (BMI). Constant sitters at work had a 16% higher risk of early death compared to their more active counterparts.
  • Cardiovascular Disease Risks: The risks were not limited to overall mortality; individuals with sedentary work lives also faced a 34% increased risk of death from cardiovascular disease.
  • Active Alternatives: Those leading a combination lifestyle, alternating between sitting and non-sitting at work, did not experience an increased risk of death. Moreover, individuals engaged in exercise during their free time displayed a reduced risk of mortality, both from all causes and cardiovascular disease.
  • Exercise as a Mitigating Factor: The study suggests that 15 to 30 minutes of vigorous exercise a day can offset the increased risk of death and heart disease associated with prolonged sitting.

Harvard Study: Sitting Too Much Threatens Brain Health

In a groundbreaking study published by the Harvard Medical School, startling revelations have surfaced regarding the connection betweenprolonged sitting and an increased risk of dementia, even for individuals who maintain a regular exercise routine.

The findings, released online on September 12, 2023, by the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), provide valuable insights into the potential cognitive consequences of our sedentary lifestyles.

The Study's Scope:

This comprehensive study delved into data from nearly 50,000 older adults, with an average ageof 67 and a majority being women, who did not have a dementia diagnosis at the study'scommencement. Over a three-year period, participants wore wrist accelerometers tomonitor their daily movement and sedentary patterns. Seven years later, researchersexamined medical records to identify individuals who had been diagnosed with dementia.

The Alarming Findings:

The results of the study revealed a significant correlation between extended sitting hours andthe likelihood of developing dementia. Individuals who sat for an average of at least 10 hoursper day during the monitoring phase faced an 8% higher risk of later developing dementiacompared to those with fewer sitting hours. Shockingly, for those who averaged at least12 hours of sitting daily, the risk surged to a staggering 63% higher than their lesssedentary counterparts. Even more concerning, regular exercise did not appear tomitigate these risks. Even among those who exercised, individuals who sat for 10hours or more daily were just as prone to dementia as those who engaged in minimalphysical activity.
