Apparently, our jobs are killing us. For real. We spend nearly six hours a day sitting at a desk, according to a 2012 study by Science Daily. And we’ve all heard the stories of how awful it is to sit for long periods of time.
While many companies have evolved with the use of standing desks, standing for too long is just as bad!
Movement is key. That’s where Casper Boards enter the picture.
Use while standing or sitting, the board allows people to increase their overall activity throughout the day through “small but regular movements”. We could say “small but regular movements” are good in other areas of our health, but we digress.
If sitting, the board is like a footrest—except the balls help you move the board freely in any direction.
If standing, the board acts as a balance board with a snap-on dome-shaped base that creates a bit of instability—which activates the core.
Here at Crack Wise, we’ve come up with other ways to use Casper Boards:
Relay race. Duh.
