Tasks best suited for a desk treadmill
Updated: Feb 15
I have realized some office tasks are better suited for a desk treadmill rather than a normal work desk. I have been using desk treadmill for a month by now and given below are few task which I love doing on my desk treadmill
Walking while taking phone calls
Talking on phone (or a web meeting) while sitting for long makes me feel anxious and jittery. Best time to use my desk treadmill is when I can talk on phone with my clients helping me to be more creative and innovative while speaking. It’s a proven fact ( for me at least) that some of the best ideas I can have is while walking or running.
Light typing Activities:
Like casually browsing the web, going through the email or scrolling the social media (which I tend to do a lot these days). While wasting my time on the irrelevant internet scrolling, I am rest assured that at least I am walking and getting in shape .
Binging on Netflix lately?
This is the best time to use a walking desk, while binging on my favorite Netflix series , I am happy that I am doing something for my health and being in shape while watching TV.
Some office tasks which I prefer sitting
On the other hands , office tasks which require intensive stationary focus on the screen like writing or filling out a spreadsheet was little difficult for me while using the desk treadmill. So I have made sure to divide my tasks into standing and walking on the desk treadmill. Writing intensively, not surprisingly, was best done sitting.
Anyhow with little adjustments, I am able to bring much more movement in my daily schedule and helped me to stay active without putting in additional time. If you are planning to buy a desk treadmill (or a standing desk), make sure you read my experience of using the desk treadmill for a month.
Always keep walking, my friend because movement is life !
