It is said that sitting for too long destroys your body. Many might find it strange that a position where you are supposed to be relaxing is actually hurting your body, but the truth is that humans are not built to sit still and look at a screen day after day. The truth is that sitting for too long over a period of time will actually hurt your body.
Studies have shown that not using your legs can weaken them and increase the risk of injuries. Also, sitting too much will affect our weight and can cause problems with our hips, back, and neck. In other words, sitting for long hours has undesirable outcomes that most people would like to avoid.
HumbleWorks is a London-based company that was born out of the need to improve wellbeing in the office and is now in the process of changing the way we work. According to them, we sit for an average of 9.2 hours and sleep at an average of 7.7 hours per day, although humans are not biologically designed to this type of life.
As a result, HumbleWorks is working to find a solution to this problem. The company is an industrial design collective, who love to design and produce well-considered products that actually improve the wellbeing. They create clean, elegant and portable products that enhance the physical wellbeing and can be used on an everyday basis in design practices, offices, and homes.
Today the company has a range of design made products that work in different ways, such as a standing desk that reduce the impact of sitting, and a laptop stand that allows a better angle when looking at the laptop.
