Even if you exercise, sitting all day can have a deleterious effect on your health, including an increased likelihood of cardiovascular issues. If you have a job where you find yourself all but chained to a desk for eight hours a day, it may be time to consider a standing desk to reduce your sedentary time.

Of course, standing all day isn't great, either. It potentially increases lower limb swelling and your ability to focus.

Here are a few standing desk options for every space and budget.
