It has become common knowledge that sitting for extended periods can be damaging for your health. Sitting can lead to increased risk for coronary heart disease, certain cancers, type 2 diabetes and certain cardiovascular diseases. A significant amount of your sedentary lifestyle is mostly spent sitting for work and replacing it with a walking workstation would do the trick. Treadmill desks are definitely the envy of the office, but they can also offer other benefits. Some of the top ones are:
Improves mood and reduce stress
You will see an improvement in your mood with regular exercise and the brain releases endorphins that subsequently reduces anxiety. These can trigger a positive feeling in your body and increase your confidence.
Putting in a treadmill desk can work wonders for enhancing your creativity. Walking gets your entire system humming, which means your creative juices will be flowing. You will get better ideas and would have the energy to implement them.
The work performance of people who have a treadmill desk is remarkably better than people who are just sitting at their desks all day. When employees are getting regular exercise while working, it can boost their overall productivity and also improves their health. There is an improvement in mental performance, work quality and time management.
Maintain a healthy body weight
Like other forms of exercise, you can burn a lot of calories while walking. If you want to achieve weight loss and don’t have the time to go to the gym, you can just increase your intensity level, walk for longer duration or increase the incline level while working. This allows you to save time because you don’t have to go to the gym to exercise and you can still achieve a healthy body weight as you wanted.
