In the modern world we are expected and conditioned to sit long hours. It has become the norm of our daily routines to sit. Studies show that many of us spend 90% of our day sitting and the rest is spent laying down sleeping. Our bodies are not designed for sitting, especially not for most of our life. The human design is evolved to move and be in a full range of motion.
How We Have UnEvolved:
Yes, we managed to digress in evolution as our new lifestyle has is reliant on computers. Just a couple generations ago our ancestors were much mor physical. They farmed, they walked, they rode horses, they labored and they simply moved more. Today many of us live our lives in a sedentary environment. We sit at a desk, we sit on the couch, we sit in the car, we sit everywhere all the time. Merely exercising is not enough to undo the damage of caused by sitting.

Stand Up to Reduce Fatigue and Increase Energy:
We bet that you feel yourself loosing energy at the 3 o'clock slump. Between lunch and dinner our body is trying to burn what the food we ate for our midday meal. Blood sugar levels drop as the food is processed in our stomach if we don't eat correctly. Sitting literally stops our blood flow from the stomach and heart and slows down our entire system. When someone sits at a computer is can be exhausting and sometimes painful.
A typical work day where you sit upright in the same position becomes uncomfortable after a mere 20 minutes. Lower back pain or hip pain happens. You might feel numbness in feet or legs. You shoulders may tire and you neck might strain to adjust. Yet through the pain you have become conditioned to think that you are being effective and productive. You block out the fact that your blood flow slows and muscle cramps become a thing you accept. Sadly we become compliant to these life threatening issues that arise with sitting all day.
A study of people who sit for many hours found that those who took frequent small breaks — standing up to stretch or walk down the corridor — had smaller waists and better profiles for sugar and fat metabolism than those who did their sitting in long, uninterrupted chunks. Imagine the difference that would happen if you alternate from sitting to standing throughout the day.
Here is the scientific explanation on the importance of moving from sit to stand positions. The major part of the problem with sitting a lot is that you don’t use as much energy as those who spend more time on their feet. This makes it easier to gain weight, and makes you more prone to the health problems that fatness often brings. Evidence suggest that there’s a “physiology of inactivity”: that when you spend long periods sitting, your body actually does things that are bad for you. In particular, lipoprotein lipase. This is a molecule that plays a central role in how the body processes fats; it’s produced by many tissues, including muscles. Low levels of lipoprotein lipase are associated with a variety of health problems, including heart disease. Studies in rats show that leg muscles only produce this molecule when they are actively being flexed. The implication is that when you sit, a crucial part of your metabolism slows down. Actively contracting muscles produce a whole suite of substances that have a beneficial effect on how the body uses and stores sugars and fats. Simply put, over time, sitting leads to obesity and overall reduction in your metabolism.

Recent research is telling us there are many benefits standing desk benefits.

In short, they were healthier and fitter than their sitting coworkers.
Diabetes and obesity is a major problem in the United States. The easiest way to combat and maintain good blood glucose levels is to us a standing desk. Simply standing up helps curb and discourage diabetes and obesity. When you stand your muscles are engaged and releases lipase that tells your body to process fat and cholesterol which over time will help you lose weight by burning more calories.
