Study on standing desks as part of a more active workplace - Week 1 over

So as promised here is an update on how Stephen is getting on. Remember he is using a standing desk daily and also working in a cold warehouse about 50% of the day:

  • His sleep pattern has completely changed mostly he reckons due to the extra activity and cold. In his own words he hasn't slept so well since he was a teenager. 
  • Energy levels he reports to be higher although he is much more tired from around 9pm onwards. This he believes is due to the increase physical activity. 
  • Appetite. An unforeseen side effect. Constantly starving apparently. 
  • Weight loss. Yes 1 Kg so too little to mean much at this stage. We will have some stats after 1 month. 
  • BMI, body composition, blood pressure etc we will have end Jan as we need more data points. 
  • Back pain (he has issues). Massively improved. Si joint pain significantly reduced apparently. 
  • Muscular pain.Yes. Tired legs and sore muscles by the end of the day. 
So into week 2 he goes. It's a cold snap this week so he'll be freezing in the warehouse just as our boiler is fitted into the offices.

Christmas Shipping 2020

Our last shipping day of 2020 will be the 15th December. We will re-commence shipping on 5th January 2021. We understand this is an extended period however from experience it prevents the damage, loss and disappointment of late deliveries we have historically seen during the hectic Christmas period.
