Sit-Stand Workflow & Your Health
Few will dispute that our modern lifestyles have become increasing more sedentary over the years, and it may be killing us. In fact, recent studies report that men who sit for six hours or more a day are 20% more likely to die sooner than those who sit for three or less. For women, the difference is 40%.
