Sit Stand Tips: Movement (such as walking) improves blood flow, lubricates joints, and hydrates your spinal discs. So, getting up briefly and moving (or stretching) every ~30-60 minutes helps to do this for your body if you have a sedentary job. We also advocate standing when possible, such as while on the phone, reading, while eating, or during meetings. Even if one has a sit/stand workstation, they still need to move. So, we also encourage people to fidget and change their sitting posture as much as they can to encourage more movement.
