See why all Apple employees now have standing desks

Apple CEO Tim Cook recently disclosed an interesting detail about Apple Park, the company’s new headquarters: Everyone gets a standing desk. “It’s much better for your lifestyle,” Cook said in a recent interview.

“We have given all of our employees, 100%, standing desks. We have a lot of people using the Apple Watch at Apple, and 10 minutes before the hour, suddenly they all get up and move. It took a little to get used to, but it’s great,” he said – as reported by Business Insider.

Tim Cook isn’t the only celebrity that supports standing desks. Oscar-winning editor Walter Murch, known for working on films such as The Godfather and Apocalypse Now, uses one while he edits films.

With a large percentage of New Zealanders working in office jobs, this is a concerning fact. Office workers are advised to take regular movement breaks throughout the day to counteract the negative health effects from prolonged sitting. However, this isn’t always possible – especially with the busy schedules or workloads that some of us have. There’s good news though – there is a solution that will allow you to keep working while reducing the negative effects of sitting all day: the standing desk.

Standing desks can help to reduce these risks by fostering more movement throughout the day, which can help to counteract the sedentary office lifestyle. As well as reducing the ill-effects on your health from prolonged sitting, standing desks can also encourage better posture, improve mood and energy levels, and even boost productivity!
