As we know, multitasking is a productivity killer, and the standing desk effectively eliminates the urge to multitask and flip between websites, email, and other distractions. “I constantly had my to-do list opened and I’d try to get through them all ASAP. The only differences being that while sitting, I spent more time on Facebook and Spotify, which shows us that sitting lets our minds wander more,“ Davis Siksnans, project manager at the Draugiem Group, told me.
Stand to focus and complete tasks. Sit when you need to brainstorm. Or just stand all the time.
I personally like to mix it up. Sometimes a simple shift in movement and change in environment just makes me more productive.
