A new trend in standing work is hitting the workforce fast; however, this “new trend” is actually a historic concept.

It seems like great minds think alike when it comes to appreciating the benefits of standing while working. Recent studies have shown that, in addition to reducing the number of physical health risks that can occur as a result of sitting, standing helps to boost your energy, increase productivity, and even make you a more creative worker.

Both strategic thinkers and artistic minds throughout history have reaped the rewards of using a standing desk. Great minds like Winston Churchill, Benjamin Franklin, and Thomas Jefferson, among others, completed their work at a standing desk.
