Hey Gamers – Adjustable Height Desks aren’t Just for Work
Don’t lie – If you’re a gamer and you’re at work right now – you’re counting the minutes until you can get home and get playing. I mean, that final battle isn’t going to fight itself, amirite? (Or whatever game you’re into) The average gamer is 30 years old and has been playing for 13 years.
That’s thousands of hours spent playing! … and sitting. So, even if you’re using an adjustable height desk at work, you might be racking up some serious sitting hours at home. Not good.
Just because you’re having fun instead of working while sitting down doesn’t make it any less unhealthy for your body. If you sit for a total of 6 hours a day at work and then you’re gaming for 2-3 hours at night, that’s up to 9 sitting hours – not counting the time you spend sitting during your commute, during meals, and in bed.
Unless you’re playing a lot of Wii or other interactive games, you probably need a standing solution for your gaming hours.
Listen, I’m not being anti-gamer here – just suggesting that maybe work isn’t the only place an adjustable height desk might be useful.
In fact, a recent study found that “Playing video games promoted a range of social, emotional, cognitive, and problem-solving skills, as well as enhanced creativity and a persistent, optimistic motivational style that contributed to success and achievement.”
Whether you’re playing on a console, a computer, or a mobile device, an adjustable height desk like VARIDESK gives you a comfortable way to play that doesn’t involve “couch crunch”. Plus, if standing at work can increase your focus and energy, imagine how much better your gaming skills will be.
