Health Benefits to Using Anti-Fatigue Mats
Sitting behind the desk for hours can become unhealthy just as standing for hours is just as unhealthy. So how do we balance it all? Anti-Fatigue mats can help you prevent unpleasant consequences on staying on your feet for a very long time and can be a companion to your sit to stand desk.
The benefits of using anti-fatigue mats include the following:
1. Build your strength and posture. When we stand, we tend to slouch less and is easier to keep a proper posture. A comfortable anti-fatigue mat helps maintain good posture and build your strength for your core. It is also best to change postures regularly while working to find a healthy balance of sitting, standing and moving around.
2. Reduce level of fatigue. Standing as you work has many health benefits, but prolonged standing on a flat hard surface can have serious side effects. With prolonged standing, it may take a toll on feet, ankles, legs and back. An anti-fatigue mat will reduce the level of stress on the body and increase worker productivity while keeping workers healthy or comfortable.
3. Easy storage. These mats do not need to be assembled and can be put away if not used.
4. Stretching. As we sit or stand for long periods of time, stretching is essential for our body to maintain a healthy lifestyle. The anti-fatigue mat allows the user to stretch comfortably when used.
